Our development of the QUIC network layer continues, and with 4D 20 R4, we now have the sleep mode and the automatic update. Let’s take a closer look at these enhancements and see how they compare to the way they work with other network layers.
Some improvements have been made in 4D 20 R4 to make your selections of records stable and consistent regarding potential deletion of records in this selection.
Keep reading to learn how your 4D code will be so safe out of the box.
Introducing the latest iteration of the Build4D component, now accessible on GitHub. In previous blog posts, we discussed the possibilities with a compiled project, a component, and a standalone application.
Now you can create a script for your Client/Server application from A to Z. And easily integrate it with continuous integration tools.
Let’s see how.
The Data Explorer is a powerful tool for visualizing data. Its capabilities allow administrators to effortlessly ensure data consistency. At the same time, developers can validate their code for creating, updating, or deleting data – all without the need to craft new forms.
Now, with 4D 20 R4, users have the ability not only to visualize but also to correct their data directly within the interface of the Data Explorer. That’s right! You can add, modify, or delete data directly in the Data Explorer interface.
On the forum, several requests, tips, or questions have been asked about displaying a message, an hourglass, or some interface elements in the foreground of a form while blurring out the rest. You can create this type of interface with sub-forms and call forms. The code can get complicated if you’re working with a multi-page form.
To simplify your work, Vincent De Lachaux has prepared a class to simplify the management of sub-forms displayed in a multi-page form. It handles loading the sub-form on the fly, controlling it from a worker, and repositioning it if the main form is resized. You can focus on your dialogues without worrying about the mechanics.
This blog post extends Ayoub’s ‘Datatable & CRUD operations’ session, focusing on Qodly Studio’s Matrix component.
Serving as a dynamic UI element, Matrix efficiently displays a variety of Stylebox components, finding applications in Product Galleries, News Feeds, and User Profile Showcases.

Here we go with another set of tips and tricks.
The 4D Knowledge Base is a library of information about 4D technology where weekly tech tips and monthly tech notes are actively published. If you missed the last tips on the KB, that’s fine; here is a compilation from the past few weeks.
This blog post covers 12 tips:
The manipulation of dates and times often requires specific formatting for various representations based on 4D’s internal resources or operating system settings.
While the default formats are usually all you need, there are scenarios in which custom formatting is essential, particularly for different geographical locations or unique requirements. In 4D v20 R4, significant advances have been made to meet this precise need
With 4D v20 R4, we significantly improved the management of print jobs inside 4D. 4D can now run multiple print jobs in parallel, significantly increasing your applications’ reactivity while facilitating the management of concurrent print jobs.
Let me tell you more about it!
With every release, the list of features in 4D View Pro continues to expand. And this feature release is no exception: 4D v20.2 and 4D v20 R4 come with a new version of SpreadJS, the v16.2, and a Ribbon update that is compatible with it.
Let’s explore the enhanced features introduced in this latest version.
