Q: Mac-->Windows, 2.6-->VFP

Q: Mac-->Windows, 2.6-->VFP

Post by Jim Hagado » Sun, 19 May 1996 04:00:00



Greetings earthlings!

I anticipate having to port my databasing application from Macintosh to
Windows soon.  The current app is in FP 2.6a for Mac.  Two questions:

What measures are necessary to port a FPMac app to FPWindows?

How well does 2.6 code translate into code for generating an app in VFP
(Mac or Windows)?

Thanks for your thoughts!

There is very little problems in transporting Mac to FPW apps. The
main problem is patching up the screen positions of objects - since Mac
fonts are different from Windws fonts - and screen objects positions
in Foxpro depend on the screen fonts used.

Transporting to VFP is another ball game - all your screens may need a
rewrite - except for some of your basic Xbase code.
