Several predefined actions that help your app users manage their content were already available in the Action section: “Add,” “Edit,” “Delete,” and “Share”. 4D v19 R2 introduces a new one, and you’re going to like it! You can now create Sort actions to sort local app data.
For some time, you’ve been able to create your own custom data formatters and convert strings, booleans, or integers to images in your generated app.
This new 4D v19 R2 feature will allow you to take full advantage of those formatters for iOS and Android, and make sure images look good in both light and dark appearances.
Let’s see how!
That also includes a crucial step: choosing a main color for the app. That’s why, since the introduction of 4D for iOS, the main color of your mobile application was defined by the dominant color of your application’s logo.
With 4D v19 R2, we’re giving you a feature that lets you easily define the main color of your iOS and Android app, by selecting it from a color picker fully integrated into the project editor.
For a few weeks, you’ve been able to use the offline action feature, and we’ve already obtained great feedback about it.
As we’re constantly improving the product’s features set, application users can edit and retry sending pending tasks that failed due to server validation. Let’s see how it works.
We are pleased to announce that 4D for Android is available with 4D v19 R2.
Many features are already available, and with each new release, we’ll enrich the possibilities so that 4D for Android’s features match those of 4D for iOS.
What’s best is that the same mobile project can generate both native iOS and native Android apps. We made sure to provide very similar user experiences on both platforms while still respecting their standards.
how to extend your application and go mobile
The mobile project editor is fully integrated into 4D. You can design and build native iOS and Android apps quickly and easily without programming. If you want to go further, you can open the generated application with Android Studio or Xcode and customize it with Kotlin or Swift.
The other big advantage of a native application is that you can access the data even when you’re offline.
