Create Web applications with Visual FoxPro and take advantage of a
powerful and proven framework. Version 5 adds a new
Web Control Framework on top of the core Web Connection engine,
adding a rich, visual and control based approach to FoxPro Web development.
Optionally use Visual Studio to layout your controls and HTML with full
layout support and Intellisense, but create and debug code using
pure FoxPro code in the FoxPro IDE.
While the Web Control Framework is new, Web Connection still works
and improves upon the classic MVC style mode with new HtmlHelpers and templating of
earlier versions. So what are you waiting for? FoxPro Web Development was never easier than this.
