Sample Component

TRANSFORM can convert a whole form, including all components, properties and events. In most cases the conversion is complete and automatic, without requiring any modifications to the generated code.

You can use it to build components that encapsulate all the data and functionality of an existing form. These can then be shared with other programmers in a format they can easily reuse and extend.

TRANSFORM will also convert new properties, methods and events added to the interface of your form.

This allows you to develop components from existing forms and to use the full power of the Delphi IDE to build and test components.

We have found large productivity gains in component building through this natural process of building and testing components as forms.

The following pages illustrate an example form and its component, converted with TRANSFORM.
