The toolsets can be common resources such as native Visual FoxPro classes that can be placed onto a workspace. Additionally, the Toolbox supports items that are builders or wizards, ActiveX controls or classes, COM+ controls or classes, and text scraps. Furthermore, the Toolbox can hold file-based resources such as tables, images, reports, labels, and forms.

The individual tool sets can be fully customized. In addition, users can add new tool sets containing their own selection of items.

You can open the Toolbox by clicking Toolbox on the Tools menu or by clicking the Toolbox button on the Visual FoxPro standard toolbar. You can then drag and drop items from the Toolbox to your workspace or click them to perform other actions.
