Delphi for Win32:
Program or unit recursively uses itself
 
Posted 8 years ago on 2/12/2009
 A documented error from our Delphi Documented Errors Page

KB101900


Documented Error:

[DCC Fatal Error] Program or unit 'Buttons' recursively uses itself



You cannot create a Delphi unit with the same name as is already in use. For example, do not create a buttons.pas unit for your application because the VCL already has a Buttons.pas unit.

The solution is to rename your unit.

To recreate this error, try to create a project called Buttons that uses a buttons.dpr project file.

Many thanks for amazing guide, you are rock! I really appreciate what you are doing. I had problems and constant errors, when was working on my project, so I want to try now what you are suggesting with the hope that everything will be soon fixed.
