Show It and Support It : Screen Casting tools for everyone

Here's an article that was originally promised to FoxPro Advisor but they turned it down as it wasn't FoxPro-enough. Enjoy...

As many third party vendors will tell you, building the product is only half the battle. The next part, getting people to use it, can be just as tricky. This isn't just a "vendor" issue either. Almost every application being put into production in any organization faces an uphill battle towards adoption. This is where all the great features you've spent months building help to get users excited about using it. But what good are features if your users don't know about them?

It used to be that building a self-running video or demonstration of software required a great deal of expertise and money, hiring a production company who did the work in their own studio.

Using Genmenux

A session and white paper I gave back in 1994 at the German Devcon. From the white paper:

If you have ever felt cheated by the FoxPro Menu Builder and the limits it places on you, GENMENUX offers a perfect solution.

Just as GENSCRNX extends the FoxPro Screen Builder in ways that the original developers never imagined, GENMENUX attempts to extend the Menu Builder. The idea behind the "X" series of generators is that there are times when FoxPro does not provide everything required in the Power Tools. The "X" series provides the additional functionality that can add incredible power to these tools.
