Hi, I create a unit and put this code there:

unit Unit2;

interface

implementation
// the interface code
type
  IAgendas = interface
    ['{2CFE9F89-A88D-4179-9429-2340CC67435B}']
    function getNome(): String;
    procedure setNome(Nome: String);
    function getFone(): String;
    procedure setFone(Fone: String);
  end;

end.

----------------------------------
now I create another unit to use the interface

unit Unit3;

interface

uses Unit2; // to use the interface declared at unit2

implementation

type
  TAgenda = class (TInterfacedObject, IAgendas)
    public
      function getNome(): String;
      procedure setNome(Nome: String);
      function getFone(): String;
      procedure setFone(Fone: String);
    private
      Nome: String;
      Fone: String;
  end;

function TAgenda.getNome(): String;
begin
  Result := Self.Nome;
end;

procedure TAgenda.setNome(Nome: String);
begin
  Self.Nome := Nome;
end;

function TAgenda.getFone(): String;
begin
  Result := Self.Fone;
end;

procedure TAgenda.setFone(Fone: String);
begin
  Self.Fone := Fone;
end;

end.


but it shows an error when I try to compile at Unit3: 'Undeclared identifier: 'IAgendas'

Why it shows me that error? I put the Unit at uses clause and it didn't recognize IAgendas.

Please help me with that, Thanks.

I would like use at different units, because if I put it at same unit it works fine.... but if I try to use the interface at another unit it shows me the same error.

I did notice that in your Unit2, you have declared your type under your inplementation section, move it up to interface section

Shane

unit Unit2;

interface

implementation
// the interface code
type
  IAgendas = interface
    ['{2CFE9F89-A88D-4179-9429-2340CC67435B}']
    function getNome(): String;
    procedure setNome(Nome: String);
    function getFone(): String;
    procedure setFone(Fone: String);
  end;

end.


Should be


unit Unit2;

interface

// the interface code
type
  IAgendas = interface
    ['{2CFE9F89-A88D-4179-9429-2340CC67435B}']
    function getNome(): String;
    procedure setNome(Nome: String);
    function getFone(): String;
    procedure setFone(Fone: String);
  end;


implementation

end.
