It is my distinct pleasure to announce the "Thor" project is officially a new project on VFPX and Jim Nelson is the project manager.

Thor is a tool to manage tools within the Visual FoxPro IDE. It provides a unified method for registering other tools, simplifying the task of disseminating them, and a user interface to control the assignment of hot keys and developer-defined menus. The UI provides four different methods for accessing these tools:

1) By assigning hot keys to them
2) By creating pop-up menus accessible via hot keys
3) By adding them as bars under any of the VFP system pads (File, Edit, View, etc.)
4) By creating new pads in the VFP system menu and adding them as bars under these new pads

Unlike the normal limited set of hot keys available from ON KEY LABEL, Thor provides for a full range of multiple-keystroke combinations (Ctrl + Alt + A, for instance).

Jim's team of developers (including Doug Hennig) have been hard at work and are moving toward a beta release. If you are interested in helping out with Thor, please contact Jim through the People page on this Web site.

Thanks Jim!
