TBordeStyle problem

I have:

  TBorderStyle      =  (bsNone, bs3D, bsFlatSingle, bsFlatDouble);

  TVCL1             =  class(TCustomControl)
     // Private declarations
     FBorder:       TBorderStyle;
     FVCL2:         TVCL2;
     FList:            TListView;
     // Protected declarations
     procedure      SetBorder(Value: TBorderStyle);
     constructor    Create(AOwner: TComponent); override;
     destructor     Destroy; override;
     property       Border: TBorderStyle read FBorder write SetBorder default bs3D;

At Create I wish to assign to listview a bsNone border but get error.

I use
  FVCL2.BorderStyle:= VCL2.bsNone; // work PERFECT
  FList.BorderStyle:=ListView.bsNone; // error ListView unknown. I have ComCtrls in my units

What to do to can assign bsNone to my FList ?

?? just asking why you redeclare the BorderStyle Type

would it not be enough to include the unit, where it is declarded (controls i guess)
TBorderStyle is declared in the Forms unit

What is VCL2 and why does 'FVCL2.BorderStyle:= VCL2.bsNone; // work PERFECT' work?

I suspect that VCL2 is the unit name where your own TBorderStyle is declared, right? But here is no unit named ListView. So, the second line fails.

If the above is correct then:
should give you incompatible types (TBorderStyle) because Forms.TBorderStyle is not compatible with your own type.

So, the only solution is as vacerose already said, i.e. Forms.bsNone;

TBorderStyle      =  (bsNone, bs3D, bsFlatSingle, bsFlatDouble); is a little different by standard TBorderStyle :) Take a look to the last two values.

The TBorderStyle is declared into bouth units, This is the reason of FVCL2:=VCL2.bsNone. Elese a FVCL2:=bsNone will be enough.
