How do you know if a molecule has a delocalized pi bond?

A pi bond can have delocalized electrons if the molecule has other resonant structures.

A molecule has a pi bond if there are any bonds that are double bonds or more within that molecule. A double bond consists of one sigma bond and one pi bond. A triple bond consists of one sigma bond and two pi bonds and so on. If a molecule with double bonds or triple bonds has a resonance structure, the electrons are delocalized so that there is even distribution of electron density.

So just to clarify, as long as there's resonance then there's delocalized pi bond?

Can someone tell me how to draw a pi bond of p and d orbitals
