All you need to know to program with Visual dBASE.

Visual dBASE Programming presents a developer's view of Visual dBASE for Windows, written by an internationally-known database expert and dBASE specialist. It's an ideal text and reference for anyone who possesses an understanding of database concepts, including:

  • DOS dBASE programmers migrating to Visual dBASE in Windows 3.1 or Windows 95
  • Visual dBASE programmers who want to exploit the full power of Visual dBASE
  • Developers of database applications that want the power of an object-oriented language
  • Client/server developers working in Windows

You'll start with the basics of using Visual dBASE—with emphasis on the concepts that database developers will need to learn, such as event-driven programming and Windows, object-based creation of forms.

There is a crystal-clear introduction to the object-oriented methods that are central to Visual dBASE. Learn what objects and Classes are, and how Visual dBASE handles properties, constructors, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and other object-oriented techniques.

Learn about the Visual dBASE developer's toolset, including Properties dialog boxes, the Expression builder, the dBASE help system, SpeedBars, and SpeedMenus.

There's much more, including:

  • Expert advice on migrating database systems from DOS to Windows
  • Test and Debugging Visual dBASE applications
  • Exploiting the Windows API and Windows DDE, OLE, and external DLL functions
  • Building Client/Server and SQL applications with Visual dBASE
  • Developing more secure Visual dBASE applications

Visual dBASE Programming is replete with examples, tips and techniques, all focused on the types of tables, queries, forms and reports most commonly developed with dBASE.

An accompanying disk includes all tables and example code, including a complete sample application.
