Speaker: Bob Wright

Not so fast.. When using cursors, some of the things what we've been told are fast in VFP can be performance intensive in certain control structures. We are going to examine code that apply techiques that will help us all get maximum performance in proces intensive applications.

Kevin McNeish: VFP vs .NET
March 13 2003 Meeting: Question and Answer time is 6:30 to 7:00.

At 7:00, Rich Simpson of Mind's Eye, Inc.
will present his new Report Engine Control.

This Report Engine control was demonstrated at the GLGDW 2002 in Milwalkee last fall and was very impressive. Since then it has been presented at the Chicgo FUDG and the Dallas/Fort Worth User Groups.

This new control makes it easy to do graphs and barcodes in a VFP Report as well as support for saving reports to PDF without requiring
any 3rd party PDF printer drivers or tools. It also does PAGE X OF Y
without making any extra passes on the Report. The Report Engine also supports appending multiple VFP Reports into a single Report Preview as well as sending multiple reports to a single PDF or a single print job. It also supports multiple page sizes and page orientations in single Report Preview. Since there is VFP code driving the Report Engine you can even extend it's capabilities to add support such as Subreports and more.

The main power of the tool is that you now have a Report Object that you can
manipulate at runtime and it is extremely fast.

For more information about this Report Engine, check out Mind's Eye, Inc.
