TBitmap and compiler errors

I'm creating a TBitmap

var Bitmap: TBitmap;
begin
  Bitmap : =TBitmap.Create;
  etc etc
theproblem is that here a get a compiler error of 'Object or class type required'.
Any ideas why? I used the same piece of code in another app with no problems.

cheers

hehe hi xpher you can blame microsoft for this one .

see these 2 uses clauses:
uses
  Graphics,Windows,Messages, SysUtils...

uses
  Windows,Graphics, Messages, SysUtils...

the second is how yours should be.
tbitmap is also declared in windows.pas as microsift added a tbitmap to the windows and as it is declared in first uses clause after the graphics.tbitmap it is used instead .
therefore the error.
