A Companion to The dBASE Book

Authored by Ken Mayer
Edition: 2

The dBASE Book Plus is, as the subtitle states, “A Companion to The dBASE Book” (3rd Edition, published in 2013). This book covers changes in dBASE Plus since version 2.8, including dBASE™ Plus 8, 9, 10 and now 11 (released in the fall of 2016). Included in this book are discussions including the following:
  • Upgrades to the Integrated Developer’s Environment (IDE), including the Microsoft Foundation Classes
  • Assist ™ technologies (dmDesigner™, dmOutput™, dmC.R.U.D.™, dmWEB™)
  • ADO (ActiveX Database Objects) — a way to free your applications from using the Borland Database Engine
  • Includes a basic, but fully functioning, application using ADO Database Classes
  • The new Graphics Engine, and some of the new features included with it, including (but not limited to):
    The glyFX images that are installed with dBASE
    The resource files with images from the Google
    Material Interface collection, as well as images from the Geotag Icon Project by Yusuke Kamiyamane (all open source)
  • Enhancements to the “standard” Grid control, and the new GridEx control
  • The new ListView Control
  • The new SQL Builder
  • The even newer Data Module Designer (dmDesigner™)
  • Improved ActiveX interface, and the ActiveX controls that are installed with dBASE Plus
  • Callbacks (from the Windows API)
  • High Precision Math, new Number Object, and more
  • A new chapter on using dmWEB™
  • And some new features for building and deploying applications ...

As you can see, there have been a lot of changes to the software since The dBASE Book. This companion volume is aimed at helping you get up to speed with the new functionality and features faster than trying to do it on your own.
