There are a lot of samples provided with eXpress++
The fastest way to try the samples is with the workbench provided with Alaska xbase++. You can browse the folders, click on the project file, you will have to build the project, and run the executable file.
Most of the samples works using the workbench. In some rare case, you must use PBUILD in the command prompt to build the project.
The workbench uses its own environment. Make sure that the path is added for exp20 files in tools environment options, directories.
If you get some samples from the forums, make sure you add the following at the beginning of the prg files
#include "dcdialog.CH"
#include "dclip.CH"
#pragma library("dcdesign.LIB")
#pragma library("dclipx.LIB")
#pragma library("dclip1.LIB")
They could be also added on the project file and you would get an error when trying to build the sample if you don´t have them at all.

Help file is provided by Alaska in a chm format. This has no issues.

The help file for eXpress++ is in hlp format witch is discontinued by Microsoft. You can still install or get the winhlp32.exe to work. This is discussed in another forum. Make a search.

When you have put some order in your code, tried the samples, added some features to your application in GUI, now it the time to have a private session with Roger Donnay. He charges 60$ per hour (price may vary) and he will help you with the next steps.

There is a lot and a lot of samples in xdemo. Thanks Brian for that info.
I spent 2 nights on it.

At the beginning, when you look at it, it looks complicated. But the more time I spend on it the more I understand the logic, and more I appreciate eXpress++.

This sounds like a good idea.
It will have to wait til I get back from Europe.
