Automatically translated from English

We are pleased to announce the launch of beta testing for 4D v19 R6! This release is loaded with enhancements and new features that you won’t want to miss!

Let’s take a look and discover what’s new in the 4D v19 R6 Beta:

 

 

 

  • Horizontal and vertical padding for list boxes — so your interface can have an even more professional look.
  • Developing concurrently on 4D Server in Project Mode so you can adopt Project Mode without impacting your organization if you still work with binary mode.
  • Define a “datasource” for the tables of 4D Write Pro — so the end-users of your application can design or modify templates that will be filled automatically with data.
  • Native support for Microsoft 365 — so you can support Single Sign-On, and retrieve information for the authenticated user, to name a few possibilities.
  • 4D for Mobile aliases — so you can retrieve values at several degrees of depth and display even more relevant information in your mobile app.
  • Much more awaits you!
