Create a BLOB attribute in an object

Automatically translated from English

With the introduction of classes in the 4D environment, the need to store your data in objects, and especially blobs, has increased. That’s why 4D v19 R2 lets you encapsulate blobs in objects.

Beyond the storage aspect, since the blob object is a reference type, your performance in terms of memory occupation and speed will be greatly improved.

Invisible Characters on Stage!

Automatically translated from English

Best practices in IT sometimes change, and the management of certain invisible characters in text files is one example. End of Line (EOL) characters have evolved, especially for version control systems integration purposes. In the same way, the Byte Order Mark (BOM) on Unicode text files is less and less used.

With 4D v19 R2, 4D has evolved smoothly to follow these best practices, giving you more flexibility along the way.

4D for Mobile: Colorize your apps without a struggle

Automatically translated from English

Our mobile products (4D for iOS and 4D for Android) were both built with simplicity in mind, allowing you to build apps easily, in a few clicks.

4D View Pro .CSV: New import/export format

Automatically translated from English

Delimited files such as “.csv” or “.txt” are commonly used formats for importing or exporting data. Because delimited files can be generated and manipulated easily, more and more data published on the Web is tabular data, usually published as comma-separated values.

A good way to format this data and show it to your customers is to use 4D View Pro.

In 4D v19 R2, using the VP Import document and VP Export document commands that support delimited text file formats such as CSV, you can easily display that data for your clients.
