Not sure why you're saying (or it seems like you're saying) that because of the demand for internet solutions you're not using vfp anymore?? It's hard to believe you don't know this but there are many, many ways to use the web and internet with foxpro including many free frameworks and also pay-for solutions. Take a look at activevfp.codeplex.com and see if you don't believe it. It sounds like you may have fallen prey to MS's marketing strategy here...

> Afternoon Folks,
>
> Been a while since I logged into foxite, been very busy with my computer business and on the road for most of the past 3-months doing contract work all over Canada.
>
> More and more I am running into customers that want a total web based solution. So I am sorry to say that FoxPro has not been my language of choice recently. FoxPro is still what I am using for traditional Windows applications, but generally my market has moved more to the Internet side of things.
> This thread is more to advised you of what I am doing and what I am using.
> I purchased "NetObject Fusion Vesion 11", for $89.99 US and was very impressed with the web components provided. Very good IDE and WYSIWYG form development. The tech support is not the best and you may wait over a week or two to get any reply. However, the application seems bullet proof and with some time and a learning curve you can master this web development software. This software gives you excellent basic web site development starting point, but falls short on database backend work, but it does support ASP and does support databases.
> To fill this gap I purchased dbQwik Professional for a US price of $299.99 dollars US. This product is an absolute dream come true. Good project management, low-end learn curve and a interface that will blow you away. If you have any web based development experience this program will work for you. Security is build in and works as expected.
> I just publised a web site using both of these products and you can check this out via typing www.marathonclassiccoffee.com into you browser. The main thing with dbQwik Professional, it saves custom coded when you publish and does not over-write custom add-in code, but you need the Pro version to maintain the custom code.
> On a web site published by dbQwik it publishes under an ASP folder to your ISP. This I found very important as I wanted to encapsolate my general http docs from my asp docs in seperate folders.
>
> Check out www.marathonclassiccoffee.com and see what these two applications can provide!
> Granted at a price, but the ease of development and publishing is well worth it!
