Review:

The recent edition of Hacker's Guide to Visual FoxPro 6.0 updates this guide with documentation on the latest version, including an extremely comprehensive reference to virtually every aspect of the FoxPro tool and language. For any working FoxPro developer, this massive book can provide a truly in-depth resource.

The most obvious feature of this book is its larger-than-average format (it measures 11 by 8.5 inches). FoxPro developers will turn again and again to the 800 pages of reference material provided here because of its completeness. In addition to every language statement, the authors cover built-in controls, including properties and events. Each topic is described along with sample usage and short code excerpts.

Other sections of the book provide a lively guide to many essential topics specifically applicable to FoxPro, from a good tour of its history (as a product with its roots in XBase compatibility) to its present-day incarnation (with objects and Web capabilities). Peppered with dozens of quotes from literary sources, the authors clearly enjoy sharing their considerable expertise: they include plenty of tips for getting the most out of objects and components in FoxPro, with notable material on debugging and Web development.

Visual FoxPro 6 is designed to be the easiest tool to use in Microsoft's Visual Studio for creating database applications. Hacker's Guide to Visual FoxPro 6.0 shows that this product has considerable power too. This title will surely be useful to anyone who develops with today's FoxPro. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: Visual FoxPro 6 overview and history, data containers, XBase and SQL, field types, Web publishing, FoxISAPI, Active Documents, wizards and builders, debugging tips and performance tips, FoxPro controls, objects, ActiveX controls and automation, Visual FoxPro reference.

From the Publisher:

Concerning the "CD" mentioned in the book - when we first planned the book, we knew it would be bigger than the original 3.0 version. But, as we got close to press time, the book was @400 pages over its expected size. So, we had to choose between cutting 400 pages of material or dropping the CD as a medium for distributing the samples and HTMLHelp version of the book. We chose to go to a larger 8.5x11 size book and keep the content. However, all of the files that would have been on a CD are available via download from our website. Using downloads instead of CDs has also had a silver lining. Updates can be made easily if necessary and are readily available - can't do that with a CD! Enjoy your book!
