calling Application.ProcessMessages from a Data Module


I want to tell the user of my program that it is still working by updateing  Statusbar.Panels on the main Form from time to time.
As I remember I have to call Application.ProcessMessages in order to interrupt the calculations and display the new message.

Neither in a data module nor in a unit (not the main form) 'application' is known.

My questions:

Is the way used principially ok ?
How to make 'application' known to dependant units ?

just include "Forms" in the uses of that unit or the DataModule unit
