With Power Objects, you can develop applications for Windows, Windows 95, Windows NT, and the Macintosh in a remarkably short amount of time; for example, you can build a master-detail application that can add, update, and select records via a user interface — all in 30 seconds, with no coding!This is the first book that covers Power Objects Version 2.
