I have two units.  Unit1 holds a procedure called task.
How can I call that procedure from unit2?

Here's what I have.

Unit1:

procedure FillCharCode;
var
  C: Integer;
  F: Integer;
Begin
  F:= 13;
  For C:= 0 to 19 do
    Begin
      With Form1.StringAlignGrid1 Do
        Begin
          Cells[C,0]:= IntToStr(C + 1);
          Cells[C,1]:= DataModule1.AdsQuery10.FieldByName
                       (DataModule1.AdsQuery10.FieldDefs
                       [F].name).AsString;
          F:= F + 1;
        End;
    End;
End;


Unit2:

implementation

uses unit1, dmod1;

{$R *.DFM}

Procedure DoSomething;
Begin
  FillCharCode;
End;

It tells me undeclared identifier 'FillCharCode'.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Stick this in between interface and implementation in Unit1 and it should work.

procedure FillCharCode;

Unit 1 should then look like:

Unit1;

...

interface

...

procedure FillCharCode;

implementation

...

procedure FillCharCode;
var
 C: Integer;
 F: Integer;
Begin
 F:= 13;
 For C:= 0 to 19 do
   Begin
     With Form1.StringAlignGrid1 Do
       Begin
         Cells[C,0]:= IntToStr(C + 1);
         Cells[C,1]:= DataModule1.AdsQuery10.FieldByName
                      (DataModule1.AdsQuery10.FieldDefs
                      [F].name).AsString;
         F:= F + 1;
       End;
   End;
End;

...

end.

alanwhincup is correct, depending on the desired "global" scope of the procedure, You can also do this and declare the procedure normally.


Procedure TForm2.DoSomething;
Begin
 Form1.FillCharCode;
End;
