Delphi Tbitmap

I'm creating a TBitmap var Bitmap: TBitmap; begin Bitmap : =TBitmap.Create; the problem is that here I get a compiler error of 'Object or class type required'. Any ideas why?

Include Graphics in the uses section or make sure that it is included.

There are two types of TBitmap. One is a class (in Graphics.pas) the other is just a record (maybe in Windows.pas). It depends on your uses list which one will be used. You can always force Delphi to take the one you want by saying Graphics.TBitmap or Windows.TBitmap.

I had the same problem, j42 is definitely right. The order of user clause can cause this problem.
If you are working on a TBitmap like in a TImage object, You will have to add Windows unit before Graphics unit.

You have accepted the wrong answer mate. Answer of j42 was enough clear to solve this problem.
