Put Event Binding to Work, Part 1 Tamar E Granor The BindEvent() function lets you make your applications smarter and easier to use.

At fi rst glance, the BindEvent() function may seem unnecessary. After all, why bind to an event when you can just write code in the event's method?

Make Your Menus Pop [[Doug Hennig]] Last issue, Doug discussed ctl32_ContextMenu, an object-oriented menu class that’s part of the ctl32 library. This month, he looks at another OOP menu class, this time the VFPX PopMenu project.

VFPX: Go Fish 4 Rick Schummer GoFish is a tool originally released in March 2001 by Peter Diotte and resurrected by Matt Slay in 2010. GoFish revolutionizes search performance and gives Visual FoxPro developers a solid source code search and replace process. If you are a fan of Microsoft’s Code References tool or the enhanced VFPX version you certainly should take a look at the new and improved GoFish. This month Rick shows you how this tool surpasses Code References in so many ways and points out a couple of the features where it is still a step behind.

Getting Started with Client-Server with SQLite [[Whil Hentzen]] “We need to get away from DBFs” is a refrain I hear regularly from fellow developers. Be it due to perceived instability of the file format, the need for tables larger than 2 GB, or the result of political machinations, the result is the same – a desire to move to a SQL database back-end. SQLite can be an excellent intermediate step – and possibly the final word - in the process of restructuring your application to talk to a SQL back-end.
