It is possible control it through the code
eg: place under on click event of a button to test

  BorderStyle := bsNone;
  Form1.Width := 300;
  Form1.Height := 300;

When the   BorderStyle := bsNone then the form will not have any borders and has to controll through some actions

Hi sun4sunday,

I'm not sure what you mean?  I need to be able to resize the form just like you can when the BorderStyle := bsSingle.  I need to grab it at runtime and move it around.

Cheers,

>> I need to grab it at runtime and move it around.<< This means moving the form ... not resizing...

For moving the form without using the captionbar place this in the form onmousedown event:

procedure TForm1.FormMouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
ReleaseCapture;
Perform(WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_MOVE + 1, 0);
end;

You can try this:

procedure TForm1.CreateParams(var Params: TCreateParams) ;
begin
  BorderStyle := bsNone;

  inherited;

  Params.ExStyle := Params.ExStyle or WS_EX_STATICEDGE;
  Params.Style := Params.Style or WS_SIZEBOX;
end;

Thanks guys, I don't have a problem with moving the form.  That functionality works fine.  Resizing is what Im talking about.

Will try Mishu's suggestion now.
