LKBEN11100: Howto find the mainform in Delphi


You are programming in pascal and need to find the mainform


Pascal (Delphi) has a predefined structure which can be used to find the mainform quickly


You open the dpr file from the project and look at the end. You will find things like:

Application.Title := 'Appname';
Application.CreateForm(TMainForm, MainForm);

The first form that has been created, is the form that will start the application after the "Application.Run" command in the delphi source code


Hope this makes your life easier.
