If a procedure is to be part of your form/component, etc then you need to declare it within the class definition.  If it is to be called by other things then it need to be in the public section, if not, the private, eg:

------------------------------

unit Unit1

interface

type
  tForm1 = class( tForm )
    private
      procedure MyFunction( param : longint ) ;
    public
  end ;

implementation

{$R *.RES}

procedure tForm1.MyFunction( param : longint ) ;
begin
  // Code here...
end ;

------------------------------

For a private procedure, and

---------------------------------

unit Unit1

interface

type
  tForm1 = class( tForm )
    private
    public
      procedure MyFunction( param : longint ) ;
  end ;

implementation

{$R *.RES}

procedure tForm1.MyFunction( param : longint ) ;
begin
  // Code here...
end ;

--------------------------------

for a public one...

If the function does not relate to a class, but you still want to call it from outside the current unit, then you do not need to put it into the class definition, but in the interface section instead, eg :

--------------------------------

unit Unit1

interface

type
  tForm1 = class( tForm )
    private
    public
  end ;

  procedure MyFunction( param : longint ) ;

implementation

{$R *.RES}

procedure MyFunction( param : longint ) ;
begin
  // Code here...
end ;

--------------------------

  (note there is no tForm1. infront of the implementation of the procedure)

And if the procedure is not required outside the current unit, then you do not have to declare it in the interface section...

Hope this helps,

Good luck,

Tim.
