Thanks to macOS Sierra, applications now have to opportunity to use tabbed windows instead of multiple windows. From 4D v16 R3, 4D Developer Edition 64-bit can take advantage of this Apple’s new feature for the design environment.
The type of windows that can be tabbed are Methods and Form Editors windows. Other windows as explorer or tools for instance remain separate.
As in every application based on tab windows:
- each tab can be moved to a new window by dragging the tab out of the tab bar.
- each tab can be moved to another existing window.
A new step has been reached in 4D v16 R2 with the 64-bit Quick Report editor: the cross-table reports are now available!
As you probably already noticed, the new Quick report for 64-bit versions had been fully redesigned since v15 R3 to provide you and your end-user with a better user experience. After list reports which were available as the very first step, we are now moving forward and delivering cross-table reports.
With the new network layer, we can implement new functions that were impossible with the legacy network layer. The first is the application sleep notification.
4D v16 is now providing an easy and smooth product activation. Either for development or for deployment, benefit from an improved user experience when activating your 4D products!
For our customers running client-server applications on Windows, it is possible with 4D v15 R5 to enhance the end-user experience by using the Single Sign On feature, which basically allows your end-user logged into the system to also use their 4D application without being asked to re-enter any login/password.
With 4D v15 R2 is available the first preview version of the 4D Developer Edition 64-bit Mac & Windows. This preview includes dialogs that have been fully rewritten, first to migrate to 64-bit but also to provide you with modern end-user dialogs with an improved user experience.
The GRAPH command has been totally refactored to ease the use and customization of your graphs. Moreover it has been enhanced to give you the full control on the various graph properties.
4D v15 R2 includes the first preview version of the redesigned Label Editor which is fully implemented in 4D code.
The new dialog is available in the 4D Developer Edition 64-bit versions (Win & Mac). It can be accessed through the Tools>Labels menu.
