I have been reading the documentation for ActiveVFP, impressive. Sounds like what I need.
I have a rather large VFP9 application with many forms and tables that I would like to make web accessible.
Right now I am using RDP to access it. I have experience with VFP and Expression coding, but have no clue as to where to start with ActiveVFP. Are there any tutorials available or should I just download and dive in?
Thanks for any comments,
DLM

I would just download and dive in. Look at the demos. After you install, these will be running on your machine. Look at the FAQ too.

To begin with, take a portion of your app and try to web-enable it.

I'll be available in a couple of weeks should you need some consulting help.

Yeah, the function is great.

Take a look at my some modification of code that you would know it is basically using activevfp :

It would take sometime for me to learn b'coz I do it part time.

Good job (http://stevenmoo.no-ip.biz/web/companylist.avfp ).

I also encourage you and others to use new CSS designs and themes for your own unique styles instead of the demo style. This is one of the areas where it would be nice if the community could contribute CSS themes and/or a mechanism to easily swap CSS themes out to change the look and feel of a site.

Thanks for the info. Would look into CSS themes. Gosh... just need some more time to digest. :)

Twitter Bootstrap provides a great CSS Framework and has gotten great reviews. Should work perfect with AVFP.
