As a 4D developer, you have to keep up with the new advances 4D is continuously shipping. Besides tips and tricks provided by the product team, Tech Tips are another reference for learning some of the 4D concepts.
This article covers 4 tips:
- How to treat SQL wildcard characters as a literal string
- Programmatically get the project name
- Preemptive methods under the same call chain should also be preemptive
- Creating a new View Pro document based on a Sheet
When you create a document with 4D View Pro, you often need to fine-tune your user experience by hiding the sheet tabs and the scrollbars, or by deactivating the context menu or the drag and drop option… All these features and more are now possible thanks to the VP SET WORKBOOK OPTIONS command from the v19 R4.
4D v19 R4 comes with a new version of SpreadJS, the v14.2, and a Ribbon update that is compatible with it. Let’s discover the new features offered by this new version.
Creating reports or spreadsheets from existing templates speeds up development. Starting with 4D v19 R4, copy and paste actions can now be performed using code that copies a range of cells from another location (including other areas).
4D v19 R2 comes with a new version of SpreadJS and a Ribbon update that is compatible with it. Let’s discover the new features offered by this new version.
When printing, page break location is set by default, but you can adjust the print area by defining your own page breaks.
Starting with 4D v19 R2, to help your customers choose where they want to place their page breaks, 4D View Pro lets you add and remove page breaks manually, and also display the print preview lines.
Sometimes, you need to display different tables of information in one document. For better visibility, it’s often necessary to display them in different sheets. In this case, you need to create, rename, hide or remove a sheet, or simply know which sheet the user is currently on.
With 4D v19 R2, you can manage the sheets in your 4D View Pro documents by programming.
