Tips

Display your dashboard on a big TV screen

Today, big screens are everywhere. At the airport or train station for arrival/departure. In production areas for failure/success or production numbers. In call centers for activity or calls in queue. In stock exchange for a ticker.

Your first thought could be to use a normal computer, macOS or Windows, with a “27” or 30” screen. Expensive, but easy to do. But besides the high price, you need to run a 4D app, launch it, update it, all just to display a picture?

Product Road to IPv6

Enhance IPv6-related user interface

Besides the fact that it has a larger address space, IPv6 also has many other advantages over IPv4: built-in features like support of multicast transmission, increased security with IPSec (providing confidentiality, authentication and data integrity) and the ability to display, in the 4D client connection dialog box, all the 4D Server available even if they are published on a non standard port (different than 19813).

4D introduced IPv6 support with 4D v14, however some dialogs were not perfectly arranged for the IPv6 use cases. 4D v16 R4 provides some UI improvements for a better user experience for people using IPv6 network configurations.
