...convert a .dfm file to text and vise versa?
Autor: Gstatter, Erhard

Tip Rating (19):  
     


Since Delphi 5, DFM-Files are stored as text files.
Unfortunately, D2-D4 can only read DFM-Files in a binary-format.
Delphi provides a conversion utility (convert.exe) to
convert between .txt and .dfm formats.

Seit D5 werden die DFM-Dateien als Textdateien gespeichert.
Um diese mit D2-D4 bearbeiten zu können,
müssen sie in eine binäre Form gewandelt werden.
Um dies zu erreichen, ist im BIN-Verzeichnis von Delphi ein kleines
Programm namens "Convert.exe" vorhanden.


// Sample calls, Verwendung:

// Converting from *.DFM to *.TXT
Convert.exe FormMain.dfm FormMain.txt

// Converting from *.TXT to *.DFM
Convert.exe FormMain.txt FormMain.dfm
