I like that idea ( and wanted to do that forever ) Have to say, in all 
my time I never even noticed this dialog :-)

hrm, I have little clue about vcl but the name would suggest not, those 
other windows you mention ( Watch etc. ) are DockingWindows which seems 
necessary to do what you want, e.g. 'dock' :-) I doubt though that 
objdlg.src would need to change much, would it ? I mean other than 
changing the FloatingWindow to DockingWindow what do you need to change ?

looking at the stack or the core for that might through some light on it

I'd try changing the src file and see if that helps
