4D View Pro: Enable, Disable, or Force calculations

Automatically translated from English

4D View Pro automatically recalculates the formulas in your worksheet when you change data they depend on (e.g., entries, formulas, names, etc.).

But what if you want to make your UI more interactive and trigger the calculation of formulas whenever you want? 4D v18 R4 makes it possible thanks to three new commands: VP SUSPEND COMPUTING, VP RESUME COMPUTING, and VP RECOMPUTE FORMULAS. These commands let you suspend and resume the calculation of all formulas in your document, or force their recalculation.

Receive email with IMAP protocol

Automatically translated from English

In 4D v18, we introduced a new way to send emails. Then in 4D v18 R2, we added a new way to retrieve emails using POP3. Now in 4D v18 R4, we’re taking the first steps for a new way to handle the IMAP protocol. As we did for SMTP and POP3, there’s a new IMAP New transporter command to handle the IMAP protocol.

The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is an Internet standard protocol used by email clients to retrieve email messages from a mail server. This protocol makes it possible to manage multiple mailboxes, download emails, perform searches on the server, manage message state, and a lot more!

And with this first IMAP feature, you can add methods to the transporter to: have the list of the available mailboxes, select a mailbox, and receive email from the selected mailbox. Let’s see how.
