The Unused VCL Units profiler analyzes the source code of all units to which your application has references and determines which of these units your application does not use. Brief profiling results are displayed in the Summary panel:

The Importing User Units column of the Report panel displays the number of user units that refer to the chosen unit. If the columns’ values are zero, the selected unit is imported indirectly (by another standard unit), otherwise, the unit name appears in the uses section of your application sources.

Viewing Additional Information

A complete list of units (both user units and standard ones) that refer to the unit selected in the Report panel is displayed in the Details panel:
