Framework VII's Developers' Toolkit.
Rapid Application Development & Runtime
Framework VII' Developer's Toolkit provides rapid application
development environment and a Runtime distribution module.
FRED applications can be attached to existing or new menus and the
Framework VII user interface can be easily modified.
Actions may be associated with states, modes, type of objects and keystrokes
for operations on specific frames and files.
Stand alone programs can be called from a Windows icon, sharing screen, data and
and environment with windows.
Also included is the documentation for Framework VII
Low Level Interface (LLI).
The LLI allows compiled or assembled DOS linked executable programs,
written in languages such as C, C++, Pascal, or Assembly to run in
Framework as loadable modules.
When installed, the Developer's Toolkit is embedded into Hypertext
making it possible to paste code examples (including Assembly
language Low Level Interface routine) directly into programs.
Framework VII is an ideal maintenance programmer's editor.
Framework VII's assembly code itself is maintained and built in Framework.
Assembly modules are organized in Framework outlines with HyperText
links and indexing of functions and modules using DBF dBase files.
MS MASM cross reference files are dBase-Framework compatible.
Program modifications are assembled and linked from within Framework
and are dynamicaly tested returning immediately to the relevant outlined code.
The Hypertext \ Directory management feature automatically "attach
and learn" new keywords allowing management of names and terms
for maintenance and learning.
The additional functions and running model-programs can be used as
a base for development as well as learning.
A Framework Runtime pack allows distribution of Framework with FRED
applications. It includes programming tools to hide Framework
features such as the desktop elements and menus, to attach
HyperHelp to applications, and menu templates for your

More about Framework VII's
Framework VII consists of modular reusable and modifiable objects
that can be used to create applications and customize the user
interface without writing any code. By editing the text
part of a Framework VII's menu item, its name, message, the
conditions for its availability, and the FRED or LLI module as well
as external programs (all disk-based) called by it can be
Each key in the Framework VII keyboard manager is attached to an
object that can be independently modified to act differently in
predefined states and areas. A key press may load applications as
well as activate built-in functionality. Interface modes such as
pick-list in databases can be toggled by a call to functions.
Objects such as menu toggles or numeric and text-input menus can be
activated simply by editing text in menu frames.
A single text line in a menu frame contains all the information
needed to operate a menu: a toggle/sub menu identifier, a menu
name, a menu bottom message, a disk-based application name,
menu-availability object address, and the menu HyperHelp path.
Editing a menu line as well as adding or eliminating lines updates
the related code in Framework VII.
More than 300 functions are described in Framework VII
HyperHelp. They include new functions such as @hyperhelp, @inputnum,
@isdir, @isdrive, @num2words, @replace, @recordplace, @backplace,
@hex2dec and more. More disk-based database and development tool
functions can be added to Framework from the DTK. DTK functions
are usually loaded from disk (or a RAM buffer) when needed. They do
not occupy memory unless used, and can be cleared from memory.
