The code below moves Form2 when Form1 is moved.
type

  TForm1 = class(TForm)

    private

    procedure WMExitSizeMove(var Message: TMessage) ; message WM_EXITSIZEMOVE;

    procedure WMEnterSizeMove(var Message: TMessage) ; message WM_ENTERSIZEMOVE;

    procedure WMMove(var Message: TMessage) ; message WM_MOVE;

  public

  end;
 

var

  RunClip : Boolean;
 

implementation
 

uses 

  Unit2;
 

procedure TForm1.WMMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  Form2.Top := Form1.Top - Form2.Height;

  Form2.Left := Form1.Left;

end;
 

procedure TfrmDesigner.WMEnterSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  Form2.Top := Form1.Top - Form2.Height;

  Form2.Left := Form1.Left;

end;
 

procedure TfrmDesigner.WMExitSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  Form2.Top := Form1.Top - Form2.Height;

  Form2.Left := Form1.Left;

end;
 

procedure TfrmDesigner.FormShow(Sender: TObject);

begin

  Form2.Show;

  RunClip := True;

end;

i put your code in and i had to modifiy it a bit to get it to put the right form on top for me and that part worked. it drags left to right just fine. but not up and down. It does someting weird like it will act as if the top form is going to drag but then when i release it just snaps back and rests on top of the other form. what am i doing wrong. i've included my code segment. also if i set RunClip to true in the onshow event my MainForm doesn't show up on the screen anywhere unless it is directly underneath my CaseListFrm window.
procedure TMainForm.WMMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  {CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top - CaseListFrm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;}

  MainForm.Top := CaseListFrm.Top - MainForm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;

 

procedure TMainForm.WMEnterSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  {CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top - CaseListFrm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;}

  MainForm.Top := CaseListFrm.Top - MainForm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;

 

procedure TMainForm.WMExitSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  {CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top - CaseListFrm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;}

  MainForm.Top := CaseListFrm.Top - MainForm.Height;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;

disregard that last post. i got it figured out accept for that when the forms move for some reason there is a small gap between the bottom of the top form and the top of the bottom form. i've included a snippet of what the code looks like now but i can't account for the gap in the forms...
procedure TMainForm.WMMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top + CaseListFrm.Height + 2;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;

 

procedure TMainForm.WMEnterSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top + CaseListFrm.Height + 2;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;

 

procedure TMainForm.WMExitSizeMove(var Message: TMessage);

begin

  If Not RunClip Then Exit;

  CaseListFrm.Top := MainForm.Top + CaseListFrm.Height + 2;

  CaseListFrm.Left := MainForm.Left;

end;
