: What am I doing wrong when I'm using the ShellExecute command? Is it just like this

: procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
: begin
: ShellExecute(Handle, 'open', PChar('c:\test\readme.txt'), nil, nil, SW_SHOW);
: end;

: But when I'm doing this it says
: [Error] Unit1.pas(28): Undeclared identifier: 'ShellExecute'

: What do I have to do to make it work? Thanks in Advance.

You should add SHELLAPI to the USES clause that is on top of your PAS-file, because it's in that module that ShellExecute is defined.
