What is the .form file?

The .form file is an XML file that the visual editor uses to store the information about the GUI form. It is much more reliable than reading the information from the source code. You do not need to distribute the .form file with your application; it's only used by the IDE. However, if you want to open your form again in the form editor, you should keep the file.
