FoxProSponsored by jamf

Visual FoxPro (VFP), and its predecessor FoxPro, is a data-centric, object-oriented, procedural, database programming language and IDE from Microsoft last released in 2007 that still has some active use due to its low cost of deployment and fairly rapid development. In 2008, Microsoft released a set of add-ons for VFP's xBase components to allow interoperability with various Microsoft technologies. It allows data processing against its native file-based data tables or database servers such as SQL Server.

Hi Experts

Could you point what is preventing vfpcompression.fll to be used in a VFP9 project running under Windows10?

Accordingly to:

The same .fll perfectly runs under Windows 7

Any workaround?

Thanks in advance

Need to send SMTP email from FoxPro app that includes CC and BCC on a windows machine WITHOUT installing any ocx's or dll's. Is this possible with standard windows api calls?

Server restrictions are high, so no regsvr statements are allowed, no registry changes. dll's or libraries residing in the same directory may be permitted.

Using ODBC I am trying to redirect a VFP app to new SQL 2016 database.  If I use Windows Authentication the app will run as desired.  If I use the preferred SQL Server Authentication the ODBC connection is made and tests successfully, but when trying to run the VFP app I'm continually getting SQL Server Login dialog box popup.  I have confirmed the SQL server is set to Mixed Authentication Mode.

Sometimes, when my FoxPro application does not close gracefully for whatever reason, I get an error message upon its restart: "Index does not match the table. Delete the index file and recreate the index". Can somebody provide me with a sample code to do it automatically? Also, I have a significant number of indexes, and some of their expressions are fairly complex. So, it would be nice to have all of them listed in a single text file for convenient copying and pasting into "INDEX ON". I am still using VFP6 (I know, I know...)

Thank you.

I am able to use the ODBC drivers (Microsoft's and other providers) with Visual FoxPro Database. I am able to execute Select & Insert statements using the ODBC Drivers but not able to use Create/Update/Drop table using the ODBC Drivers. I am able to create a table using Visual FoxPro IDE but would like to do it using ODBC Driver.

Any help is appreciated.

I have a Domain (Windows 2012 R2) with 10 Stations.

I have 1 station with some problems when accessing an application (Visual Foxpro 9).
when the application is active but idle for few minutes we get an error "Error reading file....".
We shutdown the application and restart it, it works fine for another few minutes... and again ,if the PC is idle for few minutes, it gives the same error.

I tried changing the NIC, removing the Power management from everywhere on the PC (NIC, HDD, etc... ) it did not change anything...

The weird thing is that If I have an excel file open from the same share folder, it doesn't give any error..

Any help ?

Hi All:
I have a program that reads a table using a DO..WHILE loop. For each record, there is code that copies a filename (of a BMP file) that is in a field to a temp file using a COPY FILE statment. The temp BMP file is then used on a report, and the report is run for each record. If I run the source code, the COPY FILE statements and the reports are correct but when the EXE is run, only one COPY FILE statement seems to happen and the same picture appears on every report. The client using the EXE discovered the problem. Everyone is using Windows 7.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Cathie

I have been coding Fox Pro for years as needed to perform what ever quant studies that I need to do which draw of a database.

I know I need to learn a new language for the future as FoxPro is really long gone.

What would you all suggest?  I need something that does all that FOX does and more I would hope.  A language that will be good for the next 20 years and is supported.

Thank You

I have an xBase++ app that creates a table that has memo fields. The
table is created by consolidating information from several source
tables.

When I run the app complied with Clipper 5.2 the resulting .FPT file
is about 220 MB.

When I run the same app compiled with xBase++ the resulting FPT file
is approximately 20 GB.

I have the driver set up as follows in the xBase app:

// Build DBE
DbeLoad( "FOXDBE", .T.)
DbeLoad( "CDXDBE",.T.)
DbeBuild( "FOXCDX", "FOXDBE", "CDXDBE" )
DbeSetDefault( "FOXCDX" )
 
// Set up for FOX 2.x and Comix compatability
DbeInfo(COMPONENT_DATA, FOXDBE_CREATE_2X, .T. )
DbeInfo(COMPONENT_DATA, FOXDBE_LOCKMODE, FOXDBE_LOCKMODE_CLIPPER)
DbeInfo( COMPONENT_ORDER, CDXDBE_MODE, CDXDBE_COMIX )

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Experts

Could you point the better way to ensure a Wordpad content, by encryption or password ?

Also, what is the better way to do that?

By the way the file is opened by a VFP application

LOCAL oWSH

try
	oWSH = Createobject("wscript.shell")
	oWSH.Run(lcOutputFile, 2, .T.)

Catch To oErr
	oErr.UserValue = "Nested CATCH message: Unable to handle"
	=ALERT("PARE", "OK", 10, 10, "Wordpad não pode ser executado. Erro:"+oErr.Message )
Endtry

Open in new window


Any suggestion on decrypyt before it's opened and then after it's saved, is it a good approach?


Thanks in advance

Hi Experts

Could you point how to manage a VFP Multi-threaded COM Server dll to make it works out?

I obtained this example

I guess  DTS  Explorer must be opened to make it works out, isn't it?

img002
Is it a matter of install the .dll on DTS ?
If so, how to do that?

The VFP code to calls  the .dll
** This is a simple example DLL for use
** with the BASICSAMPLE.PRG file.

** Example Usage:
** loDLL = CREATEOBJECT("sample.EasyMTServer")
** loDLL.SomeLengthyProcess(_VFP)

** Note: You could also use the following
** in the event the DLL is not registered
** (assuming sample.dll exists in your path)
** loDLL = NEWOBJECT("EasyMTServer","sample.dll")

DEFINE CLASS EasyMTServer As Session OLEPUBLIC
	PROCEDURE SomeLengthyProcess (toCallback)
		
		** We'll declare the Windows API Sleep
		** function, so we can ensure the 
		** process runs for 20 seconds.
		DECLARE Sleep IN WIN32API Long

		** Create a variable for
		** our FOR/ENDFOR loop.
		LOCAL lnCount As Integer

		** Print a string to the main VFP window.
		FOR lnCount = 1 TO 20
			** Create a SYS(2015) value, and
			** print it back to the VFP window.
			toCallback.DoCmd("? + ALLTRIM(SYS(2015))")

			** Let's sleep for 1 second
			Sleep(1000)
		ENDFOR
		
		** Write out a Done!
		toCallback.DoCmd("? + 'Done!'")
		
		CLEAR DLLS "Sleep"
	ENDPROC
ENDDEFINE

Hi Experts

Could you point a workaround to this problem when registering a .DLL by using  West Wind Web Service Proxy Generator  .NET Web Service Proxy Generator for Visual FoxPro?

When generating by using the tool:
img001
So, when code runs:
img002
Inside the box means:
Failed to load file or assembly 'filec: \ wwwproxy \ hello_serviceproxy.dll'
or one of its dependencies. The system can not find the file
specified



Thanks in advance!

Could you point a way to programatically change a DBF field type from Character to Character binary?

Or optionally how to programatically create a Character (Binary) column by using CREATE TABLE(...

Thanks in advance.

Hi Experts


I'm using  vfpencryption71.fll that perfectly runs and correctly saves on a not indexed  DBF file.

But if I use an indexed DBF file (I don't know if it's really the cause, this occurs:

*-- The string that must be saved
OµÆp%D½×°W“˜Âá?ËR•(óÏSqϧux¹

*-- The string saved
Oü-+p%D+×°W"˜Âá?ËR•(óISqI§ux1  

Open in new window


The DBF index configuration Collate is Machine.
 
The codepage of the not indexed table and the indexed table is the same 1252.

The problem arises on CDX not in IDX.

Thanks in advance.

I have a VisualFoxPro (VFP) application being ported to a sqlserver backend.  The app has a memo field that contains more than 10,000 characters in come cases.  Using a varChar(max) causes a problem, the VFP view retrieves the data but there is an extra space between every character, doesn't really edit well, and will not update back to the server.  Is there a workaround or solution?
