You miss the point with your pathetic challenge like so many technology advocates do. The supposed advantages of which you
brag are irrelevant. Whatever advantages you may have in FoxPro (which on the face of your example are small if not non-existant) equal maybe a few percent in productivity. The point is that nobody is going
switch to FoxPro.
Boy for someone who never used Foxpro, you seem to know allot about it.
If you have an msn subscription download and give it a try, before you count it dead.
You think foxpro will outlast .NET, C#, SQL Server? Not *that* is funny.
It has outlast allot of other products todate. Who knows what the future will bring.
You are making my case for me. What 2014 is not long enough for support. Everybody and their brother advicated going to VB and it became one of the most used Development tools ever but it life was what 10 years and now its dead.
The Fox has been around sense the 80's
You assume to much because where on Gods green earth did i say switch to Foxpro.
The issue i have is you seem to attach yourself only to the most marketed products out there as alot of developers do. But if history is any teacher those products don't have long lives. Again VB6 anyone. VB.NET shares nothing from VB 1-6 other than some
The truely odd thing is .net future seems to be merging the database and object programing ideas into one language. I wonder what the red flash with a white tip tail just went running bye was
FoxPro is only for existing FoxPro users anyway. Nobody is going to switch to it from SQL Server. Actually I'm pretty amazed MS is still developing it, it must still have a pretty big user-base (databases are like Cobol, pretty hard to get rid of).
RHM your funny.... in C# 3.0 the rumor mill is a buzz that the new data functions are being borrowed from Fox....
I'll make you a bet that i can create a databound application to SQL faster than you can get VS up and running???
it only takes 2 lines of code to open connection and get data from a SQL server
SqlExec(ln, "Select * from MyTable", "MyLocalView")
how many is it for C# or VB oh wait i ran out of toes
