Using Genmenux

A session and white paper I gave back in 1994 at the German Devcon. From the white paper:

If you have ever felt cheated by the FoxPro Menu Builder and the limits it places on you, GENMENUX offers a perfect solution.

Just as GENSCRNX extends the FoxPro Screen Builder in ways that the original developers never imagined, GENMENUX attempts to extend the Menu Builder. The idea behind the "X" series of generators is that there are times when FoxPro does not provide everything required in the Power Tools. The "X" series provides the additional functionality that can add incredible power to these tools.
