In 4D v16 the texts for all the form objects (static texts, buttons, check boxes, etc…) will be stored in Unicode, allowing you to use characters from different languages directly in the form editor.
Especially for Asian or Eastern European languages this will ease the development process.
In 4D v16, you now have a new “On Mouse Up” event for non-draggable picture object!
This feature will provide you with an easy and notice way to draw and/or move SVG objects easily, removing the need for tricks as “SET TIMER(1)” to detect that the mouse button has been released.
4D v16 is providing you with an enhanced integration of object fields in your database.
If you have already pre-selected sets of an object field, you can now query these sets using only one 4D command: easy and fast!
Want to enhance your database scalability and use all the performance available with your multi-core machines?
With 4D v16, we have extended the list of thread-safe commands in order to use preemptive processes with your code handling XML.
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.
