FoxyPreviewer Pricing

In short, FoxyPreviewer was born as a free project in 2009. The original goal was to beautify the original VFP9 Print Preview toolbar, adding some new functions and merge several tools available in a strong and easy to work with single application. To put all these tools available in a single application, and to make them all work together meant 6 years of efforts. Several of these tools had to be completely rebuilt. Most were incomplete - in most cases they could not work for every possible reporting situation. Lots of bugs were fixed.

The VFP community also provided lots of support to this project, with thousands of people running it, providing valuable feedback, showing bugs and even providing fixes or small enhancements.

In 2014 it was already solid and being used by thousands of VFP apps all over the world. Due to the super simple way it works - just one line of code, a kind of magic, it captivated many programmers, from beginners to experts. So the development kept almost completely frozen for four years, when I received hundreds of e-mails or messages in forums asking for features, giving suggestions.

Getting back to the FoxyPreviewer development was a very hard move.

It is a complicated project, deals with lots of different tools. Getting started again after 4 years was already a big deal, trying to understand why I chose one code instead of another that could be more simple...

To reach the product that we have in version 3 demanded thousands of hours of coding, researching, testing. Since the VFP9 report engine is still a kind of a black box, to achieve a goal for many times I needed to try several techniques and different ways to do the same thing, till one of them was satisfactory. 

So at the end, after postponing its release for several months, here we finally have it! I hope you understand that this hard work should be rewarded. The good and old FoxyPreviewer v2.99 will keep as is - Freeware and opensource - being distributed here at this site. FP3 can be downloaded from here, and is completely working with all features. It just shows a watermark in some reports and a reminder in the Preview forms.

Even if you feel that you don't need the newest version, consider purchasing it as a reward for an application that already helped you a lot in the last 10 years.
