4D for Mobile: Say Hello to Aliases

Automatically translated from English

As you probably know, aliases have been available since 4D v19 R4. Aliases and computed attributes were a massive step forward for our development framework!

The days of defining business-related formulas in your 4D user interface are over; these concepts offer you a new way to separate your business logic from the UI, enabling you to improve performance by optimizing the parts separately.

And now, with 4D v19 R6, aliases are fully available and ready to use for scalars in your iOS and Android mobile projects as soon your aliases are defined on the 4D side.

4D for Mobile: Interact with other apps

Automatically translated from English

Several formatters have been made available for formatting your data in the list or detail form. For example, a boolean field can be represented as a red or green circle. If you think this is very convenient, then you will love the new features in 4D v19 R5.

Let’s imagine an application with a list of our customers, if we need to go to their offices, it would be really handy to be able to tap on the customer’s address to open Google Maps. Unfortunately on the way, you are stuck in traffic. Don’t panic, just tap on the phone number, and you can choose to send a message or call directly to let them know. 🙂 

Several other formatters are at your disposal, we let you discover them.
