Yes, by all means. fpGUI Toolkit does this. There are no .lfm files,
only a single .pas file that represents a Form. All UI code exists in
a AfterCreate() method. fpGUI Toolkit does include a Visual Forms
Designer, but that designer is simply to speed up the creation of the
pascal code - still no .lfm files are used. I'm also working on a
layout designer (I'm porting the Java MIG Layout) to Object Pascal and
fpGUI. This will make it even easier to create a user interface
without visual tools, plus it will be dpi and resolution independent.
