Dark mode has been gaining a lot of ground recently. That’s why we’ve added support for it in 4D v19, and mentioned a few ways you can adjust it to your needs in the related announcement.
In this blog post, we’ll focus on CSS and explain in detail how to set CSS styles for light and dark modes using CSS media queries.
In a previous blog post, we announced the launch of 4D for Android. But how to build, visualize and play with your Android app on your favorite virtual device? This blog post covers all these questions with answers and concrete examples.
When you use 4D View Pro (especially in offscreen mode) with complex documents, calculating all formulas could take a while and it can be difficult to know when it’s finally finished (and it’s important to wait before you call commands such as export or print).
As a solution, we’ve introduced two new events. One of which is called for every single calculation/formula, which could be used to trigger a timer. If the time expires without another formula being finished, we can assume that the whole document is finished.
“I want to find all of the documents that talk about tango! I need them quickly! Can I do that?”
Ok, but first breathe!
Keyword searches within 4D Write Pro documents simply require adding a new indexing attribute within each document. This isn’t done by default because this type of search is not often necessary so it wouldn’t make sense to systematically increase the size of the documents. However, when it’s needed, this type of index is very easy to build.
4D 18 R5 introduced form macros. They can be incredibly useful, for example, by providing an ideal way to save time on repetitive tasks. In this blog post, we’ll show you some basic examples to learn more about how macros work and the possibilities they offer. All of the following examples are available on GitHub.
In the How to connect Tableau with 4D blog post, you learned how to create a web data connector (WDC) to request data from 4D and visualize it in Tableau Public.
Bonus: I’ll also show you how to debug your WDC in Tableau Public using Chrome. Let’s get started!
In 4D Webinar – How to Connect Tableau with 4D, William Taylor (Technical Account Manager, 4D US) gave an overview of the Tableau tool and how it could be used to visualize your 4D data. In this blog post, we’ll dig into the technical details to give you a deeper understanding of how it works. This will allow you to build, for example, a visual showing the highest invoice total with nothing more than 4D REST and Tableau!
By now you’re aware of the availability of ORDA classes. In this blog post, you’ll learn a few handy tips to get the most out of them!
In a previous blog post, we showed you that documentation for methods has returned in the Explorer. Want to take things even further and use them as documentation for your components? In this blog post, we’ll show you how!
One of the most interesting features delivered with 4D v18 was remote datastores. They opened a whole world of possibilities and in this blog post we’ll show you a practical use case:
