Using Microsoft ActiveX Controls in VFP
ActiveX controls have been around for quite a while now, and are quite widely used by developers working in other languages. However, they have never been really popular among FoxPro developers. This is a shame because there are some very good ActiveX controls available, completely free, that provide useful functionality with little or no effort. In this session, Marcia shows you how you can leverage some of these standard controls to extend your Visual FoxPro applications.
