Developing with 4D in a dark environment on macOS

Automatically translated from English

Since 4D v19, you can create applications on macOS that support dark mode, so you can match your users’ taste by giving them the possibility to choose either light or dark style applications.

With 4D v19 R3, we are giving you, as a developer, the choice when developing your application. 4D Developer Edition integrates seamlessly with the light or dark look of macOS to avoid the battle between light and dark mode that has been waging for years!

Debug on the server with scalable web sessions

Automatically translated from English

Scalable web sessions were a significant improvement brought by 4D v18 R6. They allow you to use 4D tags, 4D actions, and REST API in preemptive processes, even in interpreted mode, on a 4D server. However, to debug such programs, you needed to open your development environment on the server to make it switch to cooperative mode, as the debugger window cannot be opened with preemptive processes. This way, until v19 R2, you could debug REST, 4D actions, or 4D tags. From v19 R3, all of this has become much easier, and you can debug on the server-side simply by attaching the debugger to it, as usual.

4D Write Pro: Where are my formulas?

Automatically translated from English

When a 4D Write Pro document contains external elements resulting from expressions or formulas, they are visible when the “Display expressions” mode is used. Still, they are blended into the text when the values are displayed. This is what you want for a final document, but it is sometimes useful to easily view these calculated values while writing the document. Well, 4D v19 R3 is giving you new display options for this purpose!

4D and Microsoft 365 access

Automatically translated from English

In the 4D v18 R6, 4D introduced OAuth 2.0 authentication to access emails through IMAP, SMTP, or POP3 transporters. Starting with 4D v19 R3, 4D continues to implement OAuth 2.0 protocol and provides a way to request easily by programming a token from the Microsoft identity platform to connect to the API for Microsoft 365.
