Visual FoxPro: Sedna and Windows Vista

What’s Up with Sedna? According to Milind Lele, we should be seeing a beta of Visual FoxPro 9.0 SP2 and Sedna in the next month. Given that the May “Letter from the Editor” wasn’t released until the very beginning of June, I’m guessing that they’ll be released towards the end of June or the beginning of July. I guess I could […]

A Baby, an Announcement and ‘Where has Craig Been?’

As some of you may or may not know my lovely wife and I recently had a child. Here is a picture of Scarlett Elizabeth Boyd (as requested awhile back by Tamar Granor)… Her older brother Chris is relatively ambivalent to her existence (not as cool as a Power Ranger I guess) and her mother is hard at work providing […]

Updated Visual FoxPro Extended MAPI FLL

Due to a deafening roar of requests that the vfpexmap.fll support HTML, I have created an update that includes an additional function called EMCreateMessageEx (not to be confused with the EMCreateMessage function used to send plain text). This new function provides the ability to send HTML and RTF emails. I’ve updated my previous blog entry that contains the complete documentation […]

Vista’s Aero Glass for Visual FoxPro

Aero Glass Effects While there was a little fanfare regarding transparent forms when they first came out, it was a far cry from the excitement regarding the Aero Glass effects provided by Windows Vista. In my opinion, Aero Glass effects truly are the defining presentation element that marks an application as an application being run on Window’s Vista. So it is no great […]
