Manipulate tables from 4D Write Pro widget

In 4D v18, we shipped a cool feature allowing you to easily manipulate tables with new commands and standard actions. We’ve got even more good news (especially for those who prefer UI over coding): we’ve extended these new capabilities to the 4D Write Pro widget interface. Now, a new tab lets you manipulate tables directly from the widget!

left side interface


You can insert a table, a row above or below, or a column to the right or left of a selection.

Of course, you can also delete rows and columns.

As a bonus, you can also change the background color of cells.

Toolbar interface

The toolbar has also been enriched with all these addition, deletion, and customization abilities.


Do we really need to say more? Open 4D and give it a try.
