   Dumps current Database Status
Mainly used for debugging, this little utility function simply looks at all available work areas in the current thread and documents both databases and indexes.

The function returns a string that can be viewed with an internal function like MsgBox() or written to disk with MemoWrit().

Title: InstanceCounter
Version: 2.0

   Determines number of Active Instances of the current application
Can easily be used to determine if an application is already running, and if it is, bring the first instance to the foreground and set focus to it.

This Function is based on the full path of the application and not of the Window Title.

This is an excellent introduction into Windows API Programming in Xbase++.

Title: ShowBusy
Version: 1.2

   Changes the mouse pointer to 'Busy" hourglass
During extended processing, changing the Mouse Pointer to the 'Hourglass' lets the user know that something is going on and they should wait.

Instead of manually looking for all windows and objects or classes in the application, this little Function does all of the work for you.
