Artful Gold's IDE executable DictMan.Exe has a wealth of tools for managing all kinds of DBFs, application dictionaries and data dictionaries, and it includes Artful's famous pulldown menu designer DPD, which not only designs menus but generates template-driven Clipper 5.2 code. DictMan also has several database drivers within it - DbfNtx, Six3, Comix, DbfMdx, FlexFile, and Advantage's Netware-compatible versions of DbfNtx and SixCdx drivers - and while you need the rest of Artful Gold to manage projects or generate code or make executables, you'll find DictMan invaluable as a tool by itself: it'll surely give you a feel for what's possible in Artful Gold.

Artful Gold's Forms Designer, Browse Designer and Menu Designers are template-driven, and the template language is Clipper 5 itself! So you can easily customise generated code, and you can retain custom code from version to version without having to cut and paste!
Database drivers supported include: Advantage DbfCdx, Advantage DbfNtx, Comix, DbfCdx, DbfMdx, DbfCdx, FlexFile, SixCdx. In Artful Gold these are really plug 'n play - either from the dictionary manager or from the application itself you can change drivers for any table by just clicking on a button! Database driver support is so transparent, you can switch the driver for a database file while the application is running!
