The NET4COM library is a collection of COM classes that wrap a subset of the .NET Framework 2.0. The .NET Framework is a rich collection of namespaces and API that provides a comprehensive set of functionality that developers can use to build applications that run on the .NET platform. While VFP does have a rich library of API, there are some features that either do not exist in the VFP libraries or are harder to use than in the Framework. NET4COM brings together a small subset of the .NET Framework — a collection of commonly used API that brings to VFP functionality that does not exist.
The NET4COM folder contains the following:
NET4COM.dll: The DLL for the COM components that wrap a subset of the .NET Framework 2.0.
Source: Folder containing project file and source code for NET4COM
VFPSamples: Folder containing VFP sample code that uses NET4COM
VB6Samples: Folder containing VB6 sample code that uses NET4COM
FFC: FFC wrappers for NET4COM
The samples demonstrate use of NET4COM from Visual FoxPro or Visual Basic 6.0.
NET4COM is part of Sedna, a collection of libraries, samples and add-ons to Visual FoxPro 9.0 SP2.
