Here's my question:

I have a Form (frmMain), and I have a TMenuItem(mnuNew) on frmMain.

In the USES area of my Form, I have a reference to my code Module (ExtCode).

How do I enable / disable mnuNew on frmMain from my code(ExtCode) module???


Thanks,

D.

Hi,

this way:

unit Unit1;

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, Menus;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    MainMenu1: TMainMenu;
    mnuNew: TMenuItem;
    ....

implementation

uses Unit2; //<<-yuo already have this


//--------------
unit Unit2;

implementation

uses Unit1; //<<<-add this

procedure .....
begin
     ...
     Form1.mnuNew.Enabled:=False;
     ...
end;

end.

regards,

I've found the solution to the problem myself...

Thanks to Odissey1 for answering, but it's not the solution that works for me.
