"Rick and Steve have created a couple of must have tools in HackCX and
ViewEditor. While you may not use them every day, they're the type of
tools that can make short work of the tasks you must perform when you do
need them, and for the price, it's a no-brainer purchase decision. Check
these tools out, and I'm sure you'll find as I have that they pay for
themselves the first time you use them."
- Doug Hennig, Stonefield Systems Group (FoxTalk
- December 2003 issue)
"How valuable you'll find HackCX really depends
on the type of development you do. It isn't expensive ($50 per developer
license) but if you build applications using frameworks and rarely spend
time cleaning up or refactoring code, then it may not be something you
need. But the moment you need to re-define a class or make changes under
the hood, you'll wonder how you never lived without it."

"Yeah, one - or more - of the members of your
presentation objects is hosed. There are ways to fix this kind of stuff
manually, but for problems like this, HackCX Professional will be the
best $50 you ever spent."
- Mike Feltman, F1 Technologies
"HackCX Professional v4
is one of those tools you wonder how you ever got along without. It not
only makes it easy to find and change things inside your forms and class
libraries, it also helps you see things you might otherwise miss. Highly
"ViewEditor has matured into what the
View Designer should have been. Very robust, extremely well designed
(Rick Schummer knows his developer tools) and will open views I have
broken so the VFP View Designer won't open them. I can't imagine working
without the ViewEditor..."

"It takes one heck of a product to make developers
happy because we are the hardest customers to please. It probably comes
from all of the "pleasing" we have to do for our own customers. But you
really did it! You incorporated all of our requests, threw in some good
stuff of your own, and polished it until it shines. ViewEditor is a
perfect companion product to The Stonefield Database Toolkit. I can use
ViewEditor to make the most outrageous views complete with
macro-substituted parameters, then use the SDT to propagate those
changes throughout my DBC. The pair make view/database changes not only
possible, but completely painless. Your hard work and dedication to a
quality product are certainly on display in ViewEditor, I thank you and
my customer's should thank you. Keep up the great work!"
- Paul James, Life-Cycle
Believe it or not, HackCX has *already* saved me about three hours of
work today. I can't believe I waited so long to buy it!"
- Kevin Ragsdale,
"I use ViewEditor several times every day. It's like
the American Express card for developers---don't code without it."
- Michael J. Babcock, MB Software
"As others pointed out, you need to
hack the VCX. For my money, you can't get a better tool for the job than
- Jim Winter, Production Advantage, Inc.
"You have a great product in ViewEditor and super
support and upgrade policies! Thank You so much."
- Paul Kaminsky, Pro Systems Consultants
"In summary, I give ViewEditor an A for features, an
A- for documentation and an A+ for technical support. I highly recommend
this product. At a $75.00 per developer license fee, it is well worth
the money. I easily saved the cost of purchase in my first use of this
- Burt Rosen, Software News
"I use HackCX all the time, and
ViewEditor pretty frequently. I'm in and out of both in seconds, but
that's the beauty. Thanks for some great tools, and I'm looking forward to MenuDesigner."
- Dan Lauer, The Country Sampler Store, LLC
really enjoying this new version of the ViewEditor! I am so
productive I have to stop and think once in a while!"
- Jim Felich, Integrated Technology
"The HackCX and ViewEditor tools are
working just great. They are the time savers that I thought they would
be. The best use of HackCX was converting a project from my old
framework (such as it was) to Codemine. It took about ten minutes to do
a job I couldn't even think about how to start."
- Steve Herbin, SNH Computing Corporation
"HackCX has been invaluable in keeping my applications up to date.
I recently made a change to several of my fundamental vcx files. This,
of course, rendered almost all my forms in several applications useless
until I relinked and updated affected controls. Without HackCX, this
would have been arduous, if not impossible! HackCX made it easy and
painless! Thanks, Rick!"
