Hi All when I try to compile my code
I get this Error : Incompatible Type 'Integer' and 'TSearchRec' but it points me to the Function FindClose(SearchRec); SearchRec is a TSearchRec type variable so it must be ok but when I write 'FindClose('
it writes me that the functions want a HFindFile : Integer
I know that FindClose normally takes a TsearchRec as parameter so why it wants an integer now? lol
Thx for your help

You must include SysUtils in your unit's uses clause.
Otherwise Delphi will try to use the Windows SDK version of FindClose which takes an unsigned long integer as an argument.

mhm
or use SysUtils.FindClose
a similar thing is in D6 with AllocateWnd and the deprecated directive
it's moved from Forms unit to Classes
so you do the same here .. simply use Classes.AllocateWnd :)

A Note, the compiler searches the units in the uses clause, starting with the last one and moves forward to the first one.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
