How to regenerate/resync Unit code from Form or Frame?

I am using Delphi 5. I defined a frame as part of a project and put a number of visual components on it. As normal, Delphi built a Unit, and filled in the definition of the frame object with the names and types of the components.

At one point, Delphi generated a bunch of Access Violations in DFWEDIT when I displayed that page in the editor. After I cleared them, I restarted Delphi. When I re loaded the project, all the definitions for the Frame form were gone. The components are all still on the Frame's form, though. The unit only contains  type MyFrame = class(Tframe) private public end;

How do I get Delphi to use the visual form and regenerate the corresponding code in its unit? I can't find anything like regenerate,
recreate, or resync in the help.

Thanks,

Tim.

There isn't such a thing, unfortunately. However, you could try selecting all the components on the frame, cutting them, then pasting them back in again. If this succeeds Delphi should build the declaration in the unit for you.

Cheers,
