TOPIC: Johan Kwaspen: Hello X#

Johan Kwaspen: Hello X# 1 year 8 months ago #1

Dear X# Users,

I'm Johan Kwaspen and usually program in SAP ABAP, but sometimes I have to create programs for Windows and then I use VO28.
But now there is X#, I want to convert all my VO programs to X# as soon as possible. (20 sources)
In the near future, I need a larger project that will have to maintain different SQL tables,
and of course I want to do this in X#.

Little basic question:
I understand that you first need a Visual-Studio 2017 license, and an X# license.
What version of Visual Studio do you recommend to me?

Congratulations to all who have worked on this project!

Kind regards,
Johan Kwaspen

Johan,
welcome! Now there are two Johans in the forum ;)
* Get you the 1.0.1 version from the download section. It comes with Xide, an IDE similiar to VO and IMO a joy to use.
(* if it has to be VS, get you the (free) community edition of VS 2017 from MS.
* install VS)
* install X#
* start playing...
* start VoXporter tool targeted to your simplest Vo-aef.
* look for the outcome
* if there's any problem, feel free to ask.

Hi Johan,

you will see, X# is a big step forward in SQL access compared to VO.

And if you know VO, I would recommend using XIDE - the IDE that comes with X# and is written entirely in X# itself. It is easier to master, specially if you have VO programs or if you need to build WinForms applications. And it is very similar to the VO IDE.

Hi,

I am working on both VS 2015 and 2017 due to the need to adjust to some third party lib we have that does not work on 2017. When I installed X#, it is installed on both 2015 and 2017. So, I think both are well supported. But for now, I will work on X# on 2015 and later will move to 2017 when our third party lib is upgraded to newer versions that support the latter.
