You want to insert your company logo in the signature of all your 4D Write Pro documents when they are being created? Or you want to add a product image for each of your invoices lines?
With 4D v16, it is now possible to insert inline pictures programmatically in your 4D Write Pro document with the dedicated command WP INSERT PICTURE!
Object fields introduced with v15 allows unstructured data bases, similar to schemaless database (NoSQL). 4D v16 goes a big step further. Get a dynamic structure for unstructured data… Confused?
Imagine you use an object field to allow your customers to store custom data, where they can create their own fields. This works well and is one of the most interesting reasons for using an object field. The problem is, how to allow your customer to query this unstructured data? You don’t know which ‘fields’ they used, you cannot build a query editor on top or offer a drop down with used values.
In 4D v16 the texts for all the form objects (static texts, buttons, check boxes, etc…) will be stored in Unicode, allowing you to use characters from different languages directly in the form editor.
Especially for Asian or Eastern European languages this will ease the development process.
In 4D v16, you now have a new “On Mouse Up” event for non-draggable picture object!
This feature will provide you with an easy and notice way to draw and/or move SVG objects easily, removing the need for tricks as “SET TIMER(1)” to detect that the mouse button has been released.
4D v16 is providing you with an enhanced integration of object fields in your database.
If you have already pre-selected sets of an object field, you can now query these sets using only one 4D command: easy and fast!
Want to enhance your database scalability and use all the performance available with your multi-core machines?
With 4D v16, we have extended the list of thread-safe commands in order to use preemptive processes with your code handling XML.
With the new network layer, we can implement new functions that were impossible with the legacy network layer. The first is the application sleep notification.
4D v16 is now providing an easy and smooth product activation. Either for development or for deployment, benefit from an improved user experience when activating your 4D products!
The DELETE FOLDER command has been enhanced with an optional parameter that permits you to delete the selected folder and its contents at once.
From 4D v15 R5, you can add an icon in the listbox header by programming. The image can come from a file, a picture variable or the picture library. This icon can be placed on the left or on the right side of the column.
