How do I convert VB6 call to Delphi 6

The VB call from the vendor example to the vendor's API is:

' * SetInteractiveMode
Declare Function SetInteractiveMode Lib "ICE_API" Alias "_SetInteractiveMode@8" ( _
    ByVal hdc As Long, _
    ByVal bEnable As Long _
) As Long

My stab at this, which doesn't work, follows:

//' * SetInteractiveMode
function SetInteractiveMode(hdc: HDC; bEnable: boolean): boolean; StdCall; External 'ICE_API.dll';

The code from the ICE_API.h file is:
/*
 * SetInteractiveMode
 */
BOOL ICEAPI SetInteractiveMode(HDC /*hDC*/,
                               BOOL /*bEnable*/);

How do I make this work in Delphi 6?

// Delphi declaration
//   Notes:   BOOL is defined in Windows.pas as LongBool, thus the VB use of Long
//            Make sure to include the "mangled" name at the end of the external
//
function SetInteractiveMode(hDC: HDC; bEnable: BOOL): BOOL; stdcall; external 'ice_api.dll' name '_SetInteractiveMode@8';
