Subject: Re: How to "penetrate" AF Frame programming
I highly recommend SAS Guide to Applications Development, User's Guide.
It's book 55888 available from SAS. If you are working on independent
stand-alone AF applications not to be integrated with EIS, everything from
Chapter 8 onward is what you are looking for.
Check out all the AF publications at
The OnlineDocs themselves state in the SAS/AF Learning More section:
"For an introduction to developing FRAME entry applications with SAS/AF
software, refer to SAS Guide to Applications Development."
