VIENNA, VA – January 23, 2002 – FMS, Inc. announced today the release of Total Visual CodeTools for Access 2002, its next generation of the popular code development tool which now supports Office XP. Designed specifically for developers using Access, Visual Basic, or any VBA platform, Total Visual CodeTools is a collection of 12 professional code-centric tools and utilities that help ensure coding standards, reduce development time, eliminate errors, and create more robust applications.
Integrated directly into the VB/VBA Integrated Development Environment, Total Visual CodeTools offers a rich set of enterprise-enabled coding tools. Code Cleanup standardizes existing code at the procedure, module or project level so that inherited projects are easier to understand and handle errors better. Code Delivery prepares your code for distribution which allows you to dramatically cut time and minimize the hassles of reproducing bugs or attempting to understand user bug reports. Code Builders help you to quickly write pieces of code with flawless conformance to your standards. Multi-user features support sharing of coding standards for the entire development team.
“Total Visual CodeTools makes it easy to implement professional standards for more maintainable applications,” said Luke Chung, FMS president and founder. “With Total Visual CodeTools, you can takeover an existing application, add custom error handling to every procedure that lacks it, and deploy applications that pinpoint the exact line where crashes occur. This makes it much easier to gracefully handle bugs, reproduce them, and fix them.”
"Total Visual CodeTools is one of the essential development tools that I use on a daily basis. The procedure and property builders have helped me establish and maintain consistent names and code formats throughout my project while also saving me time by handling many of the tedious parts of coding. This tool makes it easy to adhere to the coding standards you've set for your projects.” – Sandra Daigle, Microsoft MVP
