Using Assemblies in Delphi

Using assemblies similar to the ones just shown is a straightforward process. The first step is to add a reference to the assembly in the project by selecting Project, New Reference from the main menu or right-clicking in the Project Manager and selecting Add Reference After the reference is added, the appropriate namespaces can be added to the uses clause. Listing 6.6 shows a sample project unit that uses both the package and library assemblies created previously. Code from these assemblies is referenced on lines 13 and 14 of the listing.
