The Wiki has started a fairly comprehensive list of what users would like to see in VFP 10.
While some are unlikely (removing the 2GB limit, converting activeX controls into native controls,etc), some are great ideas.
I love the idea of doing DEFINE CLASS xxx (without specifying an class) and have it automatically do a DEFINE CLASS xxx as EMPTY.
A particularly interesting idea though was to make SQL Server access built directly in. The example provided was:
open data mysqlserverdb
and then let me use sqlsv tables like vfp tables. with use, select,
Realistically, it would have to be something a little more comprehensive but what’s wrong with :
OPEN SQLDATA ServerName.DatabaseName
so you might do:
OPEN SQLDATA Local.NorthWind
As more of a comment, it seems some things that people want are things that are READILY available in the PublicDomain or within the code (like object menus, etc), so adding support for some of them shouldn’t be that hard (easier said than done, of course).
