A coat of paint on the structure editor

The structure editor is a crucial element of your project. First of all, it allows you to create your structure. But above all, it will enable you to visualize your tables, fields, and relations during your developments, which is always helpful for manipulating data.

The toolbar has been modified to modernize and standardize all 4D windows.

When hovering over tables, fields, or relationships, helpful information is displayed in the status bar. New in 4D v19 R7 is the display of relationship names directly in the status bar. You no longer need to open the properties window. It’s a time saver.


var $entitySel : cs.RacesSelection
var $circuitName : Text

$entitySel:=ds.Races.query("raceId = :1"; 1)

To know all the features and possibilities of the structure editor, we advise you to read the documentation.
