Advisor DevCon’s website shows dates for next year. The conference will take
place June 12-16, 2005, in
official announcements have been made for a 2005 DevEssentials in
that time of year again to hold GRAFUG elections. This will be done at our
December 2004 meeting. Only paid members may participate. If you are unable to
attend, but would like an absentee ballot, just send me an email with your votes
and I’ll submit them at the meeting.
other official volunteers put their hats in yet.
you would like to volunteer for a position, or have a nomination you’d like to
make, please send me an email. I’ll try to compile all the information and
include it in the meeting reminder so absentee ballots will have something to
example of how to use this is when you have two controls on a form and one
object needs to disable itself based on the value of the other object. Object #1
registers itself to respond to the “Whatever Changed” message and to invoke
it’s Refresh() method. Object #2 sends the “Whatever Changed” message in
it’s Valid() method. Object #1 has code in the Refresh() method that figures
out whether to disable the control.
concept allows you to have objects respond to other objects without having to
explicitly have object names in the code. For example, you don’t have to put
code in the Valid method of Object #2 that says
ThisForm.Pageframe1.Page2.cmdWhatever.Enable = .t.. This helps encapsulate code
and makes it a lot easier to copy controls from one form to another without
having to change a bunch of code!
will make the sample code available on our website
an added bonus to the December meeting – Mike Timpe has volunteered to bring
homemade blueberry and banana nut muffins!!!!!
– a speaker from LA, homemade muffins, and elections!! December should be a
are still trying to coordinate having David Stevenson come in and talk with us,

still interested, but we have to find a month that works out for everyone.
Dolinar has volunteered to do a presentation on West-Wind Web Connection.
Duffy is interested in discussing DotNetNuke, so that’s another possibility we
can work on if anyone is interested.
Berntson has volunteered to make a presentation to our group. I just have to
coordinate his schedule with ours.
request was made to have a presentation about using the VFP IDE. I have a
session that I’ve done at several conferences called “Hidden Secrets of the
VFP IDE” that seems to fit this purpose. If anyone else is interested, let me
know and I’d be happy to present this.
discussed “FoxCast.org” which is a site that allows you to do webinars.
We’re going to research what is available and see if any of these topics are
of interest to our group. This would allow us to do a presentation without
having to pay for a speaker to travel to
let me know which of these topics interests you the most. That will help me
figure out which ones to focus on. If you have another topic or speaker you’d
like to see, please let me know. And as usual … if you’d like to present
something, please let me know.
