Data formatters with 4D for iOS

As promised, with every R-release we’ll be providing you with more 4D for iOS features. 4D v17 R3 includes a new concept allowing you to define specific data types for your fields so the content is displayed with the correct format: Data formatting!

Data formatters enable you to quickly override your fields’ default format to display the format of your choice. The formats can be selected from a predefined list in Sections > Labels & Icons.


In the 4D for iOS documentation, you’ll find the entire list of the newly added types, as well as tutorials to learn more about them. In the screenshot below, you can see the final result with four types (currencies, booleans, percentage, dates) displayed correctly.
You’re now ready to display the formats that you need in your iOS apps!
