Is it possible under D3 only to compile one certain unit (which includes only code, no form) ?
I need this to avoid a bug in D3.

Alt+F9 (or is it Ctrl+F9). One of the two will only compile the current unit you're working on.

This is not want i want. Project /Compile or Alt F9 compiles all units which have been changed in a project. I will only compile one unit, no project !!

Hi titz,

well indeed there is a little trick:

1 - Click in the Open Project button (don't us the Open... menu !)
2 - Change the file type from .dpr to .pas
3 - Open the desired unit
4 - Then compile it !
5 - Be warned to not use others Project commands, like add to project etc...
