Delphi provides a rudimentary mechanism for reusing form designs - instead of placing controls inside a form you place them inside a relocatable frame. However, this approach has limitations. Quite apart from the fact that its implementation is somewhat buggy in older versions of the compiler it is intended to allow reuse, not dynamic alteration of form contents.

Such dynamic form alteration is required, for instance, to create an "Administration Console" style of interface. This interface design - probably first made popular in Microsoft’s Internet Information Server (IIS) - consists of a treeview or listbox control running down the left hand side of a form with a panel to the right the contents of which change dynamically as the user selects different items from the tree/list view. We demonstrate how this can be done in Delphi.
