Guru,
What about working from within the Lazarus IDE as well?  Is that planned or 
support somehow?

Hi Guru,
is there a download available with a compiled demo project, which I can 
also use to see which files (.DLL, .SO) are required to run the 
application? If wxForms generates a single-exe appication this would be 
great of course. I have checked the documentation if there is a section 
about deployment.
wxForms looke very impressing and I already have plans to use it for 
some cross platform GUI applications.
Best Regards,

I looks like there is the wxWidgets runtime that needs to be distributed.  I 
looked at the compiled demo and it looks pretty good, if a little flickery.

Hi Lee,
I dont have any short term plan for it. If Lazarus's IDE provides a similar sdk for OpenTools Api then I think I should able to create a plugin for it as well.

Hi Michael,
I'll try to create a separate downloader for the examples. I'll also add a section in the help file describing the  deployment method.
