Bookmarks can now be created inside 4D Write Pro documents. But what are bookmarks exactly ? A bookmark is a named reference matching a text selection of a 4D Write Pro document.
Several bookmarks can be present inside a single document. Once bookmarks have been created, they can be retrieved as a list of names, then using one of them allows retrieve the range of the corresponding text.
With 4D v16, you can improve your database scalability using the new 4D Write Pro commands in preemptive processes.
If you are doing routines for creating or converting documents programmatically – e.g. invoices … you can now do it with preemptive workers as most 4D Write Pro commands are now thread safe!
4D v16 includes a new feature providing your end-user great freedom and flexibility at the interface level when using list boxes. The constraints defined for each column are now fully applied and respected when the list box they belong to is resized.
This feature allows users to save and restore print settings (even those that cannot be set using 4D Get print option and SET PRINT OPTION commands) quickly and efficiently, whether on Windows or Mac OS in both 32 and 64 bits environments.
Office printers supports a large set of features, duplex, staple, punch, watermark, ink saving, color calibration, just a name some. The new commands BLOB to print settings and Print settings to BLOB supports to save and restore the whole set of information available via printer dialogs, allowing fully automatic (and faceless) print jobs.
The event On Column Resize is now triggered “live” during the resizing of the list boxes as long as the user modifies the column widths (previously, it was generated only once, at the end of the resizing).
Thanks to this feature, 4D programmers will have the opportunity to create live and responsive interfaces based on the actual width of columns!
With 4D v15 R5, 4D Write Pro is moving forward!
A new page view mode is available and two new commands are available in order to print a document.
A powerful new syntax is available for 4D tags inside texts and Blobs to be processed.
This new syntax is supported in two cases:
- files with “.shtml” extensions served by 4D Web Server
- Text and Blobs sent as parameters to the PROCESS 4D TAGS command
The new syntax is available for three tags, 4DEVAL, 4DTEXT and 4DHTML, which can now be written prefixed with a $ (dollar sign) rather than as HTML comments.
I’m pleased to present you two new features for 4D Write Pro available with 4D v15 R3.
It’s now possible:
- To print a form containing a 4D Write Pro area.
- To store 4D Write Pro documents in the database directly in an object field.
The GRAPH command has been totally refactored to ease the use and customization of your graphs. Moreover it has been enhanced to give you the full control on the various graph properties.
4D v15 R2 includes the first preview version of the redesigned Label Editor which is fully implemented in 4D code.
The new dialog is available in the 4D Developer Edition 64-bit versions (Win & Mac). It can be accessed through the Tools>Labels menu.
