Extending VFP with VFP
One of the coolest things about the VFP interactive development environment (IDE) is that it's highly extendible. Even better, you use VFP code to extend VFP itself. In this session, you'll learn how to extend the VFP IDE to boost your productivity and create simple tools that make your life easier. It covers topics such as how to create your own property editors, how the new New Property/Method dialog speeds form and class development, and customizing MemberData for things such as class documentation and property editors.
Cool Uses for ReportListeners
You've probably seen the demos showing the new ReportListener in VFP 9: dynamically formatted text, rotated labels, and so forth. But did you know report listeners can be used for a lot more than that? This practical session will show you all kinds of cool uses for report listeners, including hyperlinking text in reports, providing a "live" preview surface that can handle click events, finding and highlighting text, and more.
