Great news for VFPX

bo durban has just posted the latest release of the gdiplusx library.

the most important part of the library has been converted to prg. there are several advantages using prg based classes, such as: enhanced speed and reduced size. here you can find more info about these changes. bo has given more details in his blog and in the codeplex messageboard.

now gdiplusx is beta ! the new 1.00b version can be downloaded from here

visit vfpx site on codeplex to see all great projects for vfp 

from now on, you must change your instantiation of gdiplusx call from:

addproperty(_screen, "system", newobject("xfcsystem","system.vcx"))
_screen.addproperty("system", newobject("xfcsystem","system.vcx"))


do ("system.prg")


btw, i'll try to update all my blog posts with this small change in the class initialization.
