Hello guys,

Today my delphi application is 120 mb of exe, I think it is very big exe file.
I would like to split many of forms to DLLs, so that I can reduce the exe file.

I have some doubts:

how to call a form from my exe application?
is the same way to call a form from a DLL too?

Do you have any example to show me how to?
