Okay, the problem is two-fold:

1) The TDialog control interface only controls the *default* property values used for the control's UI elements.  So, the control instance is created centered, but the Layout.Position is overridden with whatever value was set at design-time for the form (in this case, lpNone).

2) Even if you use the "initialize control interface to default" button in the form designer for your dialog, it isn't going to affect the layout properties.  I specifically excluded them from consideration during an initialize operation because most of the time a developer doesn't want the layout re-initialized, only the look and feel.

The solution here is to either:

1) Just change the Layout.Position at design-time for your dialog instance.

2) Dynamically create a TDialog instance at run-time, by-passing using the designers in the IDE and, therefore, by-passing the storing/loading of the layout properties for the dialog at run-time.
