Hi, I'm still in a learning stage.
The approach from this activeVFP is to Download Demos. Inside that demos, it contains examples.
If you could read the html code and vfp code together, you would able to learn the mixture of both languages.
Therefore, pre-requirement is a little html knowledge, and a better knowledge of vfp, to understanding coding inside.

As for the connection part,
Looks for free asp .net website, uploads the files into the web.
Therefore, pre-requirement, is able to signup a website, and uploads files in web.

That's all. It would work as the demo.


The documentation is under

It is as simple as follow :-
  1. install IIS
  2. install ActiveVFP
  3. make sure sub folder "bin" and "prg" exists in "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\" (if not found then just copy from "AVFPx.xxdemo" folder)
  4. create simple file "test.avfp" in folder "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\" and run from IE : http://localhost/test.avfp
    <html>
    <body>
    VFP Date Function <% =date() %>
    </body>
    </html>
That's all about starting with ActiveVFP. Basic knowledge of html and javascript will be required when develop complete VFP web program.

I successfully installed the demo (http://foxyland.somee.com/avfpdemo/default.avfp ) . The strange thing is, I cannot run http://foxyland.somee.com/avfpdemo/test.avfp . It contains almost exactly as the above example (I added "today is" after VFP Date Function .

Is there something I miss?
