Q

Programming with Foxpro

I am a Foxpro programmer. I want to write a program that has to exhibit the screen with other *.fxp's or *.exe's within the screen. When it is double clicked the clicked files have to be run. What other programming code do I need to accomplish this?
I don't program Foxpro, so I'm not a great source here. I have done dbase and Paradox which are somewhat similar. In both cases I could build scripts that could:

1. Find all the files in a directory of a given type (*.exe).

2. Create a list to select from on a form.

3. Run a system command in a dos shell to execute the program?
-- I could pass string parameters in.
-- I could not receive a result back directly.
-- I used to write output back to output files and then read that with my scripts.
