Learn How To Embed C Source Code To Delphi FireMonkey Applications

In this CodeRage session, you can explore how to embed C code into a Delphi FireMonkey project. The demo was demonstrated by Marion Candau.


  • How to compile C code to embed into Delphi project
  • How to link the C objects to the Delphi units
  • How to call C functions

To compile C source code you can go with C++ Builder or other tools for instance Visual Studio. We have 2 options for the resulting format, they are object files and shared libraries. You can use object files for Windows 32 and 64 bits, also macOS 32 and 64 bits. And a shared library for Linux, Android, and iOS.

How to link the C objects to the Delphi units?

  • We need to link the C object files for Windows and macOS 32 platforms
  • For mobile platforms, we link each function with its shared library file and need to add the path to the shared library into the Search path.
