March 23, 1999
Vienna, VA

FMS’ Total VB SourceBook was among the top VB tools to receive a highly coveted Visual Basic Programmer’s Journal (VBPJ) Readers’ Choice Award. The awards were recently presented at the Visual Basic Insiders’ Technical Summit (VBITS) in San Francisco, the largest international conference for Windows developers. Each year readers of VBPJ — the leading magazine for Microsoft Visual Basic® programmers — select the award-winning products they find to be the most intriguing, innovative, and best value for Visual Basic developers. Total VB SourceBook and the other award-winning products are highlighted in the upcoming VBPJ’s annual Buyers Guide issue.

"VBPJ readers know quality and value because they truly put these products to the test in their application development. The strength of all the products in the VB add-on and tools market shows that VB programmers have a wealth of tools and components at their fingertips," said Jeff Hadfield, editor-in-chief of Visual Basic Programmer's Journal. "This wealth of off-the-shelf products helps literally any VB programmer build essential, mission-critical apps more quickly. VBPJ’s readers select the award winners because the products help them speed the development process."

Total VB SourceBook is the most extensive professional source code library and code repository for Visual Basic. With over 100 classes and modules, Total VB SourceBook offers immediate solutions that Visual Basic programmers can add directly into their projects royalty-free. A wide range of code is included to cover all aspects of Visual Basic development. Our exclusive Code Explorer organizes and simplifies the process of finding and using the source code. Developers can even add their own code into the system, and multi-user features allow organizations to securely share code among their developers.

"Receiving an award from the VBPJ readers is quite an accomplishment for FMS considering that Total VB SourceBook, our first Visual Basic product, was introduced less than a year ago," said Luke Chung, founder and president of FMS, Inc. "We are extremely honored that so many Visual Basic developers immediately embraced Total VB SourceBook and recognized the value of professionally written, tested, and documented source code."

Total VB SourceBook has received rave reviews since its introduction in June 1998. WinPlanet reviewers Karl Moore and Jonathan Kay rated Total VB SourceBook a glowing 4-1/2 stars (out of 5 stars): "Smart, innovative and easy-to-use — this product is full of real-world solutions that you can’t find anywhere invaluable addition to anyone’s development toolkit. A must-have!"

Total VB SourceBook is available in two versions: a single license version for $399 and a 5 License Pack for $1299. Each license grants one developer a royalty-free distribution license of the source code in Total VB SourceBook when integrated into their application.
