Silverlight: Silverlight for VFP Developers [[Venelina Jordanova, Uwe Habermann]] In the past most VFP developers were in search of new development tools. Some of us switched to other development platforms like Java or .NET, but most VFP developers still looked for a development platform.

The search is over. A new technology is now available. With this technology VFP developers are one step ahead. You can build the most modern user interfaces with animation, transitions, multi- touch capabilities, and you can build Internet applications, which work with VFP databases and with VFP code. Silverlight offers all these options.

This is the first article in a series, which will introduce VFP developers to Silverlight.

VFPX: Code References [[Rick Schummer]] The Code Reference developer tool is one of those tools some developers find indispensible and other developers find less useful. Regardless of your opinion, all Visual FoxPro developers have the need to do global searching of the different source code fles included in their projects. Jim Nelson decided he wanted a few of his enhancements ideas implemented to make his searching more productive and is making Code References a little more powerful. This month Rick digs into the beta release of this product to show you what is new, and maybe even shed some light on some gotchas with the latest release.

Deep Dive: Practical Uses for GDIPlusX, Part 2 [[Doug Hennig]] GDIPlusX is a VFPX project that exposes GDI+ to VFP applications as a set of VFP class libraries. GDIPlusX makes it easy to add new graphical abilities to your applications, allowing you to provide a fresher and more powerful user interface. This article is the second in a series that examines some practical uses for GDIPlusX.

Understanding Business Objects, Part 1 [[Tamar Granor]], PhD I've been hearing about business objects since some time in the mid-1990's. Not long after VFP added object-orientation, people started recommending that business logic be encapsulated into a set of separate objects. Intellectually, I understood the idea, but the examples I saw never really seemed to deliver on the promise. The standard example involved a customer object with the customer data entry form calling on that business object to do things like calculate sales tax. While I could see how to build that kind of object, it didn't seem all that important. In my latest application, though, I discovered the power of business objects.
