The first impression: Why should I use VFP functions from .NET if I can use them directly from VFP :-))  It can change in my next life, maybe.

And yes, it is free, incl. source code: http://foxcentral.net/microsoft/VFPToolkitNET.htm

I have used it a bit and have had no surprises.  We would all be kidding ourselves to say there aren't  many things that are so simple in Foxpro that require quite a few lines more in .Net.  This toolkit catches a few of them to say the least.  If you are developing for where you are and not deploying to clients all over timbuktu it shouldn't pose problems.

Hello

In truth I'm a little worried about the future, since VFP is discountinued sooner or later we will obrigatorily have to migrate to other language, if one is still familiarized with .Net the toolkit could be something dispensable but I'm not that one. So my research is if it could help  to grow in knowledge  and could be a good idea to adopt it.
