CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete), a pillar of database actions, makes its debut in 4D for iOS in 4D v17 R6.
In 4D v17 R5, we introduced actions so you could better interact with your 4D for iOS apps. This included the ability to create actions to execute 4D code from your iOS apps. Things are getting even more interesting with this R-release, now you can easily manage and edit your app content using parameters.
We’re thrilled to announce that support for actions in 4D for iOS is available with 4D v17 R5! This feature allows you to enjoy more interactivity with your mobile app. For example, you can set a task as completed or finished, or flag events to be checked. All with the swipe of a finger, or by simply selecting an action from a menu.
As of 4D v17 R5, 4D for iOS supports N to One relations so you can use descriptive relation names and simplify defining your project structure. You can visualize all of your table relations directly in the Structure section of the Project Editor.
With v17 R5, 4D for iOS is shipped with a cool feature: Pull-to-refresh. It’s a very useful gesture, since all you need to do, to refresh your data, is scrolling to the top of the screen, then sliding your finger down. With this very intuitive feature, your app content is updated in a snap.
With 4D v17 R4, embedding and displaying filtered content in your 4D for iOS app is a piece of cake! With this R-release, you’ll be able to filter the data to be displayed in your mobile app.
With 4D v17 R3, we introduced basic data formatters for dates, percentage, time, etc. 4D v17 R4 takes things a step further by providing you the ability to create your own data formatters and use them directly from the Project Editor.
As we’ve seen in the last two 4D for iOS blog posts (data formatters and the creation of custom templates), 4D for iOS is becoming more feature-rich with each version. This provides more options when building your 4D for iOS applications. In this blog post, we’ll look at how you can use your own icons for more personalized apps.
