OK..

Example.
I have 2 units in a project. (Dll)

Unit 1 is my main form.
Unit 2 is a small popup window.

From the code in unit1 I wish to display the form from unit2 and have access and the ability to controll the components and there property's from the unit2 form..

(If that makes sense)


Points will be increased for examples..

Thanks Madmarlin..

Put 'uses Unit2' in the uses clause of Unit1.

Then in Unit1 you can do:

Form2.Visible := true;

I see it a Dll. In that case Unit1 will look something like this:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, Unit2;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Button2: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
    Form2: TForm2;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Form2 := TForm2.Create(Self);
  Form2.Visible := true;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Form2.Release;
end;

end.

The comments posted would work but I gain an access violation when I try to alter the position property of a progress bar that sat on the Form from Unit2 from within the code in Unit1.

Are you modifying the progress bar while Form2 is active? You can not modify anything on a form that has not been created first.

This should work after creating Form2:

  Form2.ProgressBar1.Position := 24;
