Visual FoxExpress Object Model


Namespace: VFP

The Visual FoxExpress Frame Work includes the richest object model available for VFP! No other Frame Work provides business objects and representation for tables, views, fields and view parameters in classes.

Specifically it provides 5 tiers or layers:
  • Cursors - not a VFP cursor, but in a more general defination - a data source
  • Data Environments - a set of one or more cursors
  • Business Objects - a good place for adding business rules; which by the way, do not require a UI
  • Presentation Objects - a collection of UI controls
  • Form Objects - Used to hold Presentation Objects and perform the mechanics of saving and record navagation
