Philadelphia VFP User Group--July 13--Tamar Granor on Collections  
The Philadelphia VFP User Group will meet on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 7 PM. We now meet at Valley Forge Pension Management, 550 Township Line Road, Suite 300, Blue Bell, PA 19422. As always, feel free to come as early at 6:30 and bring dinner. This month, we begin Southwest Fox previews with Tamar E. Granor speaking on "Collections--Managing Data the Object-Oriented Way." When the collection base class was added to VFP 8, it gave us the opportunity to make our applications look more like those in other object-oriented languages. Collections let us manage groups of related objects through a straightforward interface, and avoid the peculiarities of working with arrays in VFP. In this session, we'll cover the basics of using collections, the reasons why they're better than arrays, and show how they improve object models. We'll also consider the weaknesses of collections in VFP and talk about workarounds.
