Just like Delphi, Lazarus comes with a component library, which contains components that are the equivalents of those of Delphi 7 and of some later Delphi editions (buttons, listbox, checkbox, treeview,...) plus lots of Lazarus specific components (see wiki.freepascal.org/Component_Palette)
A Delphi project can be converted for Lazarus with the integrated "Delphi Converter".
