Good day,

Is it possible to add a multiple line caption to my form.

I tried to use  : form1.Caption := 'Top line'+#13#10+'Bottom Line';
But it does not work.

Can you also center text exactly on a form caption e.g. I need text on my left and exaclty in the middle some other text, and on my right some text.

It is not possible to multiple line on a the form.

>>Can you also center text exactly on a form caption
Do you mean to center the caption of the from in the middle. That can be done at runtime.
First take the width of the text, take almost half of its width then put spaces beofre the caption of the form. It will come almost the middle.

It is possible. However, the caption should have enough space to accomodate the lines. or you need to smaller the font size.
