Lazarus - Using Application in other units (eg. Application.ProcessMessages)

Sometime one has extra units to keep the main unit cleaner, or to organize procedures and such by purpose.
In those units, we every now and then may need to call an "Application" function like for example "Application.ProcessMessages".
However, this does not work, since our functionally separated unit has not access to it.

So how do we fix this?

Easy: add the unit "forms" to the uses clause of your unit and you'll have access to "Application".
