What do you call the IBO functions then?

In other words there are no Visual controls for Kylix nor is there are
plans for them - Is this correct?

I think you misunderstand me - I would like to know if it will be possible
to take my Source code and Form files to Kylix (having avoiding using
windows api) and with little work recompile them in Kylix to get a version
of the app that will run on Linux using the CLX calls instead of the VCL ones.

I currently do not have Kylix - I wanted to get the app running on windows
