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 iOS: Sort criteria and action parameters enhancements

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.

4D for iOS: Custom Input Controls

Automatically translated from English

Until now, custom formatters allowed you to match text or images to the contents of a field, such as replacing true/false with an image or 1, 2 with text labels. 4D v19 R3 allows you to create action input controls available from actions forms, such as creating a choice list with predefined text. And even better, this list can be dynamically filled using a datasource such as a list of employers. Let’s delve into the details!
