frx file

I have wrote a simple VB program for a course I am doing and the question asks for a frx file to be
submitted. I know this is connected with foxpro but do not how to create a report for this program.
Can anyone tell me how to create a report and generate this frx file?
The Question is: Supply the program1.frx file(the graphical aspects of the form and its objects)
Thanks for any help.

Visual basic has .frx files which store the icon for the related form...
Maybe I am missing something here...

This is not quite true, a .FRX file is indeed a foxpro report definition file however that is not what is being asked for here.

A VB Form comprises two parts, one is the .FRM file which  contains the form code and a text definition of the objects that are placed on it (controls such as textbox command button etc). And the other part is the .FRX file, this contains the actual objects and so on that are placed on the form. So what is being asked for here is both parts of your form. If you check the folder where you have saved your form then you should find both files:

Form1.frm and Form1.frx (assuming that you haven't changed the name of the form from the default).

if you cannot find the .frx file. I think you can recompile the form (or the project)which will create the frx file for that form.

Is'nt it ?

VB frx files are only created, from what I can tell, under a few circumstances:

1) An icon is added to the form titlebar
2) A graphic is added to the form display area
3) A string is added that exceeds the size limit

To find out if an frx is associated with an frm, open the frm in a text editor and search for the following text:  .frx":

Without that, you won't have an frx, but if you want to guarantee that one is created, make a 1x1 pixel bitmap and include it in the form's picturebox property.
