Not wanting L to get all the fun, I’ve posted a new article on the Spacefold article libary:
This used to be a series of blog posts but now it is a shared Google Doc.

Alex Sosa asked a question on the Universal Thread recently about right-aligned text in Visual Foxpro 9.0. After some back-and-forth email messages, I decided to summarise my findings in a small article.
This is the first installment of a series of articles discussing the development of a console utility written in .NET C#. In this first article, I look at creating a multi-project solution in Visual C# 2005, and sketch out the application requirements. I also take a look at application configuration files and custom configuration section handlers.
Quite a few of the discussions on the Universal Thread Visual FoxPro forum recently have been on the subject of the new Report Preview screen in Visual FoxPro 9.0, and how to control it. A particular concern is the behavior of the preview toolbar when a REPORT FORM.. PREVIEW is issued in a topform application. In my sessions I have striven to show that the default preview application is just that – a default – and that alternative forms of a preview solution are not only possible, but easy to implement. In this article I show an alternative user interface for the report preview window that you can take away and customize to your heart’s content.

This article is based on a session I gave at the Advisor Visual FoxPro DevCon in June 2005, in which I described the new report previewing abilities of Visual FoxPro 9.0, and demonstrated the basic techniques that it uses “behind the scenes”. Updated for SP1.
