Lazarus can be extended to enable use of a single window IDE. By default the IDE usually opens with a bunch of windows:

  • Main menu window (project)
  • Source Editor
  • Object Inspector
  • Messages
  • Form window

Management of those separate windows can be tricky, especially on a multi-monitor setup, and even more when debugging the IDE itself. On the other hand, a Docked form editor style may be a matter of taste.

To activate the docked view:

  • install packages:
    • sparta_dockedformeditor
    • sparta_mdi
    • sparta_toolsapi
  • save and rebuild IDE
