IntelliJ IDEA 2023.1 Help

GUI Designer Files

At design time, GUI information is stored in special files with a .form extension. These files are XML files that conform to a special schema. You can put the .form files into any version control system. A form can be associated with a Java source file.

For more information on how to work with GUI forms, refer to Creating and Opening Forms.
