I use the SLEEP function in Delphi 3.0 with win 95.
But I have to use a similar function with win 3.11.
Sleep doesn't exist under win 3.11.
Do exist a similar function under win 3.11?
Thanks.

You can use Delay with Delphi 1.0

Sorry, I think there is no delay in delphi 1.0 but you can use the following (be sure to include WinProcs)

procedure Wait(Msec : longint);
var
  b : longint;
begin
  b := GetTickCount;
  while (GetTickCount - b) < Msec do
     Application.ProcessMessages;
end;

It doesn't work with delay.

Do I specify an Unit in "uses" ?

right, the uses clause specifies a list of used units. Just add WinProcs to it, like

uses Windows, Forms;
->
uses Windows, Forms, WinProcs;

Slash/d003303
