When you create a Microsoft Visual FoxPro application, it typically includes one or more databases, a main program that sets up the application's system environment, and a user interface comprised of forms, toolbars, reports, and menus.
To create an application, follow these steps:
Create a project.
Configure your application by setting a starting point, initializing the environment, and starting the event loop.
Create a user interface for your application.
Create reports and labels for your application.
The Application Framework can create applications automatically that include all required, and many optional, elements that make an application effective and easy to use. For more information, see Creating Applications with the Application Framework.
