4D for Mobile : Get Mobile Users’ Cookies

As you probably know, scalable sessions have been available since 4D v18 R6. They’re a web session type that is able to handle several processes in preemptive mode. This means they can handle several user-agent requests simultaneously and share data between these processes.

Well, 4D v19 R7 greatly enhances this feature and makes it available to 4D for Mobile.

4D for Mobile : Display Web Pages in your Mobile Apps

You can already compose views based on templates; dozens of them are at your disposal to beautify your mobile apps. 4D v19 R7 is spicing up things even more by enabling you to display a web page served by 4D using a new preset action: Open URL.

This means four things :

  1. You are now totally free to create your own designs
  2. The user experience remains seamless embedded in your native app
  3. Get updated data in real-time
  4. You can keep user data and offer an optimized user experience using sessions.

You only have to create a web page optimized for mobile devices.

Let’s see how to use it with a simple example:

4D for Mobile: Say Hello to Aliases

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 Mobile: Interact with other apps

Several formatters have been made available for formatting your data in the list or detail form. For example, a boolean field can be represented as a red or green circle. If you think this is very convenient, then you will love the new features in 4D v19 R5.

Let’s imagine an application with a list of our customers, if we need to go to their offices, it would be really handy to be able to tap on the customer’s address to open Google Maps. Unfortunately on the way, you are stuck in traffic. Don’t panic, just tap on the phone number, and you can choose to send a message or call directly to let them know. 🙂 

Several other formatters are at your disposal, we let you discover them.
