Hi, Experts.

I'm trying to find a wrapper unit for MSADO15.DLL. I don't want to use the "Import Type Library" option of Delphi because it generates a large code and I want something smaller and easier to understand.

Thanks.

Use the ADOInt library in that case. It's part of Delphi anyways. You can also import the type library but WITHOUT the component wrapper. (Just uncheck the checkbox.) That should make it a bit smaller. And finally, unless you're searching for a unit that wraps around the type library unit you won't fiind anything more easy than what Delphi generates. Basically, the imported type library unit that Delphi generates is a bare-bones wrapper.

Btw, after importing the type library you can always edit it within Delphi and remove the things you don't need. Clearing up the uses-clause for example since without the component wrapper you'll only have to use Windows, ActiveX and Variants in the interface part.

The imported type library is in general just a collection of constants and interface definitions anyway.
