VFP System Tasks-like Panels

Proof of conceptThe following is just a quick proof of concept, so please don’t expect coding brilliance or even real great encapsulation in the class library. With that having been said, I decided yesterday that I would like to create something similar to the System Tasks panel that is shown on the left-hand side of Windows Explorer (when the folders […]

Ken Levy’s Blog gets active – KenX is Alive!

Well, after months of just a post or two (usually regarding the Letter from the Editor being online) and the occasional blitz of entries on what the greatest headphones on earth are (Ultimate Ears in case you’re wondering), Ken Levy is beginning to post more VFP content. Heck, there was even an entry that showed up a moment ago that […]

Want to invent VFP’s future? “You can’t predict the future . . . but you can invent it” – Dennis Gabor I have long since tired of the endless conjecture and distorted perception by some that MS is the one holding all the cards or that MS has a secret plan to end VFP. With the extensibility that is in Visual FoxPro already, VFP […]

Southwest Fox 2005

Other than having to run across the entire breadth of the Denver airport in ten minutes to make my final connection to Phoenix, the trip down here was good. Though a few other hurdles and minor inconveniences were waiting for me when I got here… I won’t bore you with the details of a car reservation debacle or the withdrawals I was […]

October 2005 – Letter from the Editor

The latest Letter from the Editor has been posted by Ken Levy. They’ve put the What’s New in Nine book online, and it seems I’ve been made a Visual FoxPro MVP. Sorry I don’t have longer to bore you all with an overly egotistical acceptance speech, but I’m up to my neck in alligators at this end and as I recently told Bob […]

Recent Visual FoxPro Articles

Shameless plugAs I’ve said in a couple of my past entries, I’ve been writing articles for FoxTalk 2.0 and FoxPro Advisor. I think as a community it’s important that we support these publications by subscribing to them and/or writing articles for them. They provide a lot of bang for the buck and the quality of the Visual FoxPro material they […]

VFP Random Password/Key Generator

Today I’m working on the Encryption/Decryption session I will give at Southwest Fox. And, while I was on the subject, I thought it would be nice if there was a simple way to produce random cryptography keys of a required bit length for certain encryption algorithms. So, I decided to create one in Visual FoxPro 9.0. It took all of […]
