What’s most important when deciding what to include in a new release? Is it bug fixes? Or programming productivity features? Or end-user functionality that will help the developer sell upgrades to applications to their customer and user base? Visual FoxPro 8.0 combines the best of all worlds. So what’s new in Visual FoxPro 8.0? Lots of things! New base classes, including CursorAdapter, Collection, and XMLAdapter. Powerful new tools, including the Toolbox, Task Pane Manager, and Code References. Structured error handling featuring the new TRY…CATCH…ENDTRY structure. Improvements in the database engine, including SQL enhancements, a View Designer that actually works, and an updated OLE DB provider. The list goes on and on. What’s New in Visual FoxPro 8 organizes the new features into functional categories and shows you how and why to use each of them. No matter what your area of interest, there’s a lot of new stuff in the latest to appear from the Fox labs in Redmond—and you won’t find a better, more concise guide of what’s new, and how to use it, than in this compendium put together by two of the finest Fox developers on the planet.
