With its local cursor engine, tight coupling between language and data, and powerful features, Visual FoxPro is a great tool for building database solutions of all sizes. Its data-centric, object-oriented language offers developers a robust set of tools for building database applications for the desktop, client/server environments, or the Web. Developers will have the necessary tools to manage data - from organizing tables of information, running queries, and creating an integrated relational database management system (DBMS) to programming a fully-developed data management application for end users.
Visual FoxPro contains many new features for increased productivity, including extensible and customizable Microsoft IntelliSense technology, additional control over the integrated development environment (IDE), and quick access to areas of source code through the Document View window. More than 50 commands, functions, and system variables have been enhanced or added to Visual FoxPro, some of which include new capabilities for binding events to other COM components. Visual FoxPro also implements interfacing for improved interoperability with various COM components and products, such as Microsoft BizTalk Server and full support for creating and consuming XML Web services.
Microsoft IntelliSense language assistance improves coding productivity by using powerful, extensible language assistance as developers type, and it is fully customizable. The Document View window can be used to quickly navigate to procedures, functions, and methods. The enhanced code editor in the IDE provides support for bookmarks and shortcuts, the Find search feature, and case conversion. Dockable IDE windows allow for docking common tools, such as the Command, Data Session, and Debug windows. Integrated XML support is available for exporting Visual FoxPro data to XML and importing XML data into FoxPro tables. Additional tools, such as the Object Browser and Task List manager, are all part of the suite of new productivity features for increased rapid application development.
