Please be more precise on "context".
Any tComponent is derived from TPersistend and can save itself to a file. The .dfm files are nothing but the saved Forms.

hi all,

function ComponentToString(Component: TComponent): string;

var
  BinStream:TMemoryStream;
  StrStream: TStringStream;
  s: string;
begin
  BinStream := TMemoryStream.Create;
  try
    StrStream := TStringStream.Create(s);
    try
      BinStream.WriteComponent(Component);
      BinStream.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
      ObjectBinaryToText(BinStream, StrStream);
      StrStream.Seek(0, soFromBeginning);
      Result:= StrStream.DataString;
    finally
      StrStream.Free;

    end;
  finally
    BinStream.Free
  end;
end;



procedure TForm1.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  L: TStringList;
  I: Integer;
begin
  L := TStringList.Create;
  for I := 0 to Panel1.ControlCount - 1 do
    L.Add(ComponentToString(Panel1.Controls[I]));
  L.SaveToFile('F:\comps.txt');
  L.Free;
end;
