At the moment components on other forms/datamodules can only be used in the
designer, if the form/datamodule is listed in the CreateForm statement of the
lpr file.
Note: A CreateForm statement can also create hidden forms/datamodules.

It does not matter if any of those units is in an lpk or not.

Eventually the IDE will search components on all available forms/datamodules.
