I have I have got problem how to show panel from dll form on form from EXE. I have
tried ManualDoc(form from EXE,nil,alNone) of panel from DLL, i have set
Application and Screen variables in function from DLL with paramaters from EXE
before creating form from DLL. Everythigs looks OK, but panel from DLL is
not visible on EXE form.Both EXE and DLL are compiled without runtime packages.

I am using Delphi 7,Win 2000.

    Thanks a lot

hi, Honza :)
Did you tried to set TPanel.Parent property to Form also?
And how about ShareMem (or FastShareMem) usage? did you compiled it in?
Anyway I'm not sure this will work as TObject (or other base class) from your exe <> TObject from you dll as there are two Classes.pas units (and TObject class addreses)

wbr, mo.

That is not a problem - just make your own runtime package.
Create new package - mark it as runtime package, add your customized, common units and compile.
Next in both projects (exe & dll) use only this package in runtime package list. Be sure that your runtime packages *.dcp file is in projects search path. And at runtime there is *.bpl of your package available for both projects.
If you need more detailed (step by step) instruction - just ask :)

One important note - mark the package as Runtime only and if after compile there is dialog about to recompile with delphi's runtime packages, just cancel it.

I have solved problem using runtime packages. Problem is in some global variables in vcl, different in EXE and DLL.
