Visual FoxPro Tutorials

Visual FoxPro is a data - centric object - oriented and procedural programming language produced by Microsoft. It is derived from FoxPro ( originally known as FoxBASE ) which was developed by Fox Software beginning in 1984. Fox Technologies merged with Microsoft in 1992 and the software acquired further features and the prefix " Visual ". The last version of FoxPro ( 2. 6 ) worked under Mac OS, DOS, Windows, and Unix: Visual FoxPro 3. 0, the first " Visual " version, dropped the platform support to only Mac and Windows, and later versions were Windows - only. The current version of Visual FoxPro is COM - based and Microsoft has stated that they do not intend to create a Microsoft. NET version.

FoxPro originated as a member of the class of languages commonly referred to as " xBase " languages, which have syntax based on the dBase programming language. Other members of the xBase language family include Clipper and Recital. ( A history of the early years of xBase can be found in the dBASE entry. )

Visual FoxPro, commonly abbreviated as VFP, is tightly integrated with its own relational database engine, which extends FoxPro's xBase capabilities to support SQL query and data manipulation. Unlike most database management systems, Visual FoxPro is a full - featured, dynamic programming language that does not require the use of an additional general - purpose programming environment. It can be used to write not just traditional " fat client " applications, but also middleware and web applications.
