Hi
I wondered if there was a forum topic to follow the progress that you and Matt are making with the helper

Hi Phillip,
It is Matt's call when he would share some of the work we doing. He is the VFP guru that should feel comfortable to make an announcement.

I am taking a very conservative position on communicating any claims or status of Johan and my work on X#.VFP app conversion efforts. There are some fundamental things in the X# Runtime Functions that need to be implemented so that broad coverage of even basic VFP language pieces can compile as-is without hand editing to X# syntax, and then the whole UI thing is still a great big unknown and has a very open-ended potential, of which I have only focused on one particular route at this time. X# Dev Team may go a whole different route, which would be fine with me, as I am confident that whatever they choose, they can deliver; of this I am certain, as these guys are super smart!

Further, we (Johan and me) are not a formal voice for X#, so, I will defer to the X# Dev Team to make any statements about the status of X#.VFP. Privately, in FOX forums, I may be a little more raw and open about our experiments, but not publicly, as I think it could lead to confusion on what X#.VFP will look like.
