Delphi 2009 - Add a type library to a project

To add a type library to a project add a .ridl file (it should just be a blank file, or can prepopulat it with IDL) with the same filename as the project (Example: Project1.dpr or Project1.cpp then Project1.ridl). Then for Delphi add:

{$R *.TLB}

to the .dpr file or for C++ add a:

#pragma resource "*.tlb"

to the Project1.cpp file.

If you don't want to link the .tlb file into the project simply do remove the $R or the #pragma.
