Section 4: Visual FoxPro Reference

This section is the meat of the book. You’ll find a listing for every command, function, property, event, method and system variable. We’ve grouped them logically so that you can find several related topics in one place. There are cross-references, so you’ll be pointed to the right topic even if you look up a related topic, and every item is listed Alphabetically, even if it’s only to say “See Flibbertigibbet.”
