Visual FoxPro 7.0: Program Your Data with Powerful New COM, XML, and Web Services Support

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Visual FoxPro 7.0 represents a significant improvement over version 6.0. There are many new features designed to support COM, XML, and Web Services. Now COM servers built with Visual FoxPro are more flexible and robust thanks to strong typing and the ability to implement interfaces from other type libraries. IDE features like the new object browser combine convenience and efficiency, and other language features such as event handlers and early binding to COM objects increase performance. Lastly, an enhanced session class plus several new XML functions make Visual FoxPro a great choice for Web application development.

SQLXML 3.0: Build Data-Driven Web Services with Updated XML Support for SQL Server 2000


XML is becoming the ubiquitous data format on the Web, and XML support in SQL Server is evolving to meet the additional demand. Using XML, SOAP, HTTP, and SQL Server, you can now build powerful Web Services easily. To show just how simple it is with SQLXML 3.0, this article walks the reader through the process step by step, from setting up a virtual directory enabling data access via HTTP to executing queries and building Web Services. Finally, the author illustrates the creation of two Web Services clients-one with C# that works with the Microsoft .NET Framework and one with the SOAP Toolkit 2.0 for anyone still using earlier development tools.

How to save Windows credentials to a data source in SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 using Visual

I am trying to create a shared data source for SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 that uses a specific Windows user ID and password to connect to the database. Using the Report Manager web interface, if I create a shared data source and specify "Credentials stored securely in the report server", I can check the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. This tells SSRS that the user ID and password I specify are from a Windows user, not a SQL Server user. I want to create the shared data source using Visual Studio though. In Visual Studio I have an option to use stored credentials but there is no equivalent of the "Use as Windows credentials when connecting to the data source" checkbox. SSRS always assumes that user and password are for a SQL Server user, not a Windows user, and thus the connection fails. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio that the stored credentials are for a Windows user?

Creating a SSIS package to get data from free DBF (Visual FoxPro table) in 64 bit SQL Server


Hi everybody,

I originally posted in the wrong forum MSDN Thread

I'm trying to create (for test purposes) a package to load data from VFP table into SQL Server 64 bit. So far I can not figure out how to do it - I created DSN as outlined in Todd's blog, but I don't know what to do next.

Can someone please give me step by step instructions so I will know if it's possible or not? I was under impression it's not possible, but Todd's blog seems to suggest otherwise.

Thanks in advance.

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
