you have to declare the function in the INTERFACE part of the Unit
and before in de IMPLEMENTATION part of the unit
write with the parameter of EXTERNAL and the name of  the DLL
for example I use this in my proyect in Delphi

unit TheUnitMain;

INTERFACE
uses  ....

// this is the procedure to import from DLL
procedure LoadAboutbox(Handle: THandle; AppName: ShortString);

type ...

IMPLEMENTATION

procedure LoadAboutbox; external 'AboutDLL' ;

try this and I hope works with your proyect.

What I need is the function in C to put in the Dll to get a
pointer to the class, not the code in Delphi.
Thanks.
