Topic: Newbee Questions
Stumbled upon this program ver 4.3 via internet alternatives to dBase/Clipper/VO.
After a try-out constructing a small app to manage a CardBoardModel-Inventary here the verdict:
- very nice and handy to use (building time about 5 days as a newcomer...so quite simple), but
-- the availlable documentation is lousy, especially about the report generator who gets no database
access from within the constructed app, not functioning picture storage outside DBF and access
from within a report, etc etc
-- very little to no information about property uses in forms and controls etc
-- no option to store/print the app-construction layout data for later use, fx for later app extension
-- no option to copy a form to speedup form-creations by templating the content fx
-- inconsistencies like MEMO fields not in the database (no field) and therefore not in a report
But I'm still interested, so what can the current version more than 4.3 regarding the drawbacks above? Is there any chance to get a version description regarding it's range of construction options ?
And most urgent:
- is this project still on the move (net comments suggests otherwise) ?
- where can I purchase ver 6.5 via invoice or prepay (avoiding unsecure
net handling/delivery) ?
Would be nice if somebody could give me a replay, thanks
