Trans-Form-Matic is a tool for Windows programmers that automatically converts DFM (Delphi form) files into Windows Forms code. The software's output is compatible with the code generated by Visual Studio's form designer. The GUI conversion can be performed in most programming languages supported by Visual Studio, including C#, RemObjects Chrome, Visual Basic .NET, Managed C++, and C++/CLI.

Here is how Trans-Form-Matic works. Each Delphi or C++Builder project contains one or more DFM files, which describe the application's GUI. All you have to do is point out the location of those DFM files, and Trans-Form-Matic will automatically do the rest of the job. After parsing your forms, it maps the VCL components and their properties to WinForms equivalents, generating .NET source code in the language of your choice. It also converts your bitmaps, saving them into .NET resource streams. The result is a set of source files that can be opened with Visual Studio .NET. You can compile the project right away, or make modifications to the design as you wish.

The files generated by the registered version of Trans-Form-Matic are completely free in every way. You can treat those files as if you were designing them manually. In other words, the code is 100% royalty free, and you can use it in prorietary, commercial applications, as well as open-source, public domain projects. However, the code generated by the Evaluation version of Trans-Form-Matic shall not be used for commercial applications, and shall only be used for evaluation purposes.
