If you are converting a text-based Clipper application, a FoxPro application or just writing an application from scratch, use this forum for your eXpress++ questions.

To facilitate the analysis of the eXpress/samples put this Batch File on each sample folder.
Then just double-click the PBALL.BAT and you can compile all projects in that folder without command line.

In the Express Help file, there is Getting Started.
Also, in some folders, you will find a readme.txt file.
These are important when using express++. A lot of information is there.

Take a look at the samples. There is a sample for everything in XDEMO.


---
Express Help File: Getting Started

If you are using ALINK.EXE as your linker, then the only
eXpress++ files you need when "linking" your application are:

DCLIPX.LIB
EXPRESS.RES

If you are using BLINKER.EXE (version 5.0) as your linker,
then the only eXPress++ files you need when "linking" your
application are:

DCLIPXB.LIB
EXPRESS.RES

The files you need to distribute with your application are:

DCLIPX.DLL - Always
DCLIP1.DLL - Only when using functions from this library
DCLIP2.DLL - Only when using functions from this library
DCHELP.DLL - Only when using DC_Help*() functions
DCXML.DLL - Only when using DC_Xml*() functions. Also
requires Alaska Software's ASXML10.DLL.
TASKBAR.DLL - Only when using the TaskBar() function.


To see how to use eXPress++ commands in your application,
check out the XDEMO.EXE program. The source code for this
program is in the X*.PRG files which are located in the
\EXPRESS\SAMPLE directory.

NOTE: It is recommended that you modify your AUTOEXEC.BAT file
or your Windows NT Environment as follows:

SET PATH=<current PATH setting>;\express\lib
SET LIB=<current LIB setting>;\express\lib
SET INCLUDE=<current INCLUDE setting>;\express\include

Before attempting to use eXPress++ commands or functions in your
application, it is highly recommended that you run the XDEMO.EXE
program in the \express\sample directory. The samples contain
examples of how to write applications using eXPress++. If the
documentation is unclear about how to accomplish a task, look
at the samples.
