Product New syntax for 4D tags

New syntax available for 4D Tags!

Automatically translated from English

A powerful new syntax is available for 4D tags inside texts and Blobs to be processed.

This new syntax is supported in two cases:

  • files with “.shtml” extensions served by 4D Web Server
  • Text and Blobs sent as parameters to the PROCESS 4D TAGS command

The new syntax is available for three tags, 4DEVAL, 4DTEXT and 4DHTML, which can now be written prefixed with a $ (dollar sign) rather than as HTML comments.

New parameter for DISTINCT VALUE

Automatically translated from English

With 4D v15 R4, a new parameter is introduced for the DISTINCT VALUE command. This parameter must be an array, and it receives the count of each distinct value in a selection of records.

This feature is particularly useful for obtaining statistics on records, or to order records by their most common type.
