With 4D 18 R4, we announced the availability of the suggested functions for classes (4D and data model). With 4D v18 R6, we’ve got more great news to simplify and facilitate the writing of code in the editor: The prototype of a function and a short description are displayed in the code editor!
Speed up your development process and avoid typos. Now, information about class functions is displayed in the code editor, helping you to write more in less time while making sure that you’re on the right track!
Let’s find out more!
Easy to write code
1. The suggestion list displays intelligent code completion (with a short description) and prototype so that you can write code more quickly and correctly.
2. As you’re writing your function, 4D displays the function’s prototype and a short description of the function. It also highlights the parameter that you’re currently completing.
3. The parameter displayed in bold indicates the next parameter you need to pass to the function. For overloaded functions, you can use the Up and Down arrow keys to display information about alternative syntaxes for function overloads.
Documentation with a new look
All of the documentation for classes is available on the new documentation website: Class API Reference.
