.dfm File Extension

Developer: Embarcadero Technologies
File type: Delphi Form File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dfm. Files with the file extension .dfm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dfm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dfm file?

The data of most developer files consists of compiled code required by other application files to run a larger application, and a Delphi form file is a specific example of these developer files. These developer files are saved in the DFM format and are affixed with the .dfm extension. Embarcadero Technologies developed the DFM file format to store properties, attributes, settings and other objects implemented into Borland Delphi forms that are included in a Borland Delphi EXE application. The Embarcadero Delphi software can be installed by users of Microsoft Windows-based systems to create, open and edit the content of these DFM files, which can also be encoded in plain text or binary format. A Borland Delphi EXE application running on Microsoft Windows needs to reference the data stored in these DFM files to load required elements unto the EXE application. This happens when a user accesses the Borland Delphi forms included in the EXE software, so the main application can display and provide the information and functionalities requested by the user from the EXE software.

how to open a .dfm file?

Launch a .dfm file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dfm file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dfm files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dfm file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dfm file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dfm files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dfm. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
