Automatically translated from English

4D for iOS gives you the ability to define actions that automatically call a 4D method linked with an event on the smartphone. For example, using them, you can execute 4D code, manage and edit your app’s content using parameters, and, more recently, sort your app’s content easily using sort actions!

Defining sort criteria and action parameters has been improved to make things easier and help you work more quickly and efficiently.

And even better, this list can be dynamically filled using a datasource such as a list of employers. Let’s delve into the details!
