Delphi Programming question

Hi,
I need source code for a dll and a program that would read that dll.
The Dll has to have a form on it. On that form there must be
a Tmemo component. in the memo, there must be an undefined amount of lines(it varies every time as this will be used for reading out multiple memos). When the "GetCoolScroll" procedure is called from a button on an application (not the dll) the dll takes the lines out of its own form and puts them into a TMemo component on the form of the main application. The source must be comented and complete. E-Mail me the zip to: maxcom@interserv.com.
Thanks and hope you can help.

I sent you the following examples by Email.
These example were tested under win3.11 (Delphi1) and winNT4 (Delphi3).

1. Application Code:
----------------------------------------------------------------
program Calldll;

uses
  Forms,
  Main in 'MAIN.PAS' {Form1};

begin
  Application.CreateForm(TForm1, Form1);
  Application.Run;
end.
----------------------------------------------------------------
unit Main;

interface

uses WinTypes, WinProcs, Classes, Graphics, Forms, Controls, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Memo1: TMemo;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure GetCoolScroll(FMemo: THandle);
  far; external 'Memodll.dll';

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  GetCoolScroll(Memo1.Handle);
end;

end.
----------------------------------------------------------------
2. Dll code
library Memodll;

uses Uform2 in 'UFORM2.PAS' {Form2};

{$R *.RES}

exports
  GetCoolScroll;
begin
end.
----------------------------------------------------------------
unit Uform2;

interface

uses
  WinTypes, WinProcs, Messages, Classes, Graphics, Controls,
  Forms, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm2 = class(TForm)
    Memo2: TMemo;
    bbUpdate: TButton;
    procedure FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
    procedure bbUpdateClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

procedure GetCoolScroll(FMemo: THandle); export;
implementation
var MemoHandle: THandle;
    DllForm: TForm2;
{$R *.DFM}

procedure GetCoolScroll(FMemo: THandle);
begin
  MemoHandle:=FMemo;
  DllForm := TForm2.Create(Application);
  DllForm.Show;
end;

procedure TForm2.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
  Release;
end;

procedure TForm2.bbUpdateClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  FBuffer:PChar;
  FSize: Integer;
begin
  FSize:= DllForm.Memo2.GetTextLen+1;
  Getmem(FBuffer,FSize);
  DllForm.Memo2.GetTextBuf(FBuffer,FSize);
  sendmessage(MemoHandle,WM_SETTEXT,0,LongInt(FBuffer));
  Freemem(FBuffer,FSize);
end;

end.
