To use, drop the class on a project or form or, from the Component Gallery Item shortcut menu, select Add to Project or Add to Form. When you add the class to a form, Visual FoxPro opens a builder so you can specify the appropriate cFileExpression, cSearchPath, cSearchText, lIgnoreCase, lSubFolder, and lWholeWords values. When you drop the class on a project, you can choose between adding the class or creating a subclass.

See Guidelines for Using Visual FoxPro Foundation Classes for more information on using foundation classes.
