Please provide the zipped sources of a sample application showing what you think is not working.
I just tested with two forms, one with the form magnet and it grabbed the other form just fine.

Well, that's what I suspected, your sample shows that the component works just fine. The intended behaviour is as follows:

A form with an active magnet and FormGlue set on it will glue any other form in the application, provided its borders are within the margin set in the component.

If you expect the other forms, who have no Magnet component on them to magically glue themselves, then it's not what the component is for.

As it is, it works as designed.

I want to do the same behaviour of winamp: the form1 is the main, it should glue to form2 and form2 should glue to form1. Is not important which form i'm dragging they should glue always, but I want that all the glued forms move when i drag form1, and when i drag form2 it unglues.

I have already told you:

If there is no magnet on a form, it won't be attracted to others!
To do what you want, you need a magnet on all forms, and FormGlue set to False on all forms but the main one.
Play around with the properties and you will see it works.
This is issue is now closed.

Nothing, this component doesn't work correctly. Look:

I tried your exact steps from the camtasia video and I see NO PROBLEM AT ALL.
Mind you, I'm using the subversion content, it might have changed in between but I seriously doubt it.
So please use the subversion content or daily ( and leave that issue alone.
