Latest Improvements of the HTTP Client

With 4D v19R6, we brought you a new way to perform HTTP requests: HTTP classes. At that time, some of the HTTP classes functionalities were not final, as we wanted to adapt them to the new syntax. It is now done! In v19R7, compressed responses, chunked responses, and redirections functionalities are now complete.

As a bonus, we also added a new way to log HTTP requests. And as it’s helpful to everyone, this new logging is available to the new HTTP classes as well as for the legacy syntax.

Files, Folders… and now File Handles!

The File and Folder commands, which appeared in 4D v17 R5, enable you to manage folders and files on disk in a modern and efficient way.

When it comes to writing and reading, the setText and getText functions are at your disposal to read or write the entire content. But what to do if you want to read or add one or more lines to an existing document? This can be done more efficiently than ever using the new “file handles” objects in 4D v19 R7.

Form and subform communication made easy!

A Seamless Way to Manage Parameters

In the declaration of a function or method, you explicitly define its parameters. Then, when calling that function or method, you can pass fewer parameters to it if some are optional. Or, if you used the declaration with ${n}, the number of passed parameters is variable. In this case, you use the Count Parameters command with a loop over the arguments. This code works flawlessly. Still, it’s a little bit heavy.

You asked us for a lighter way to handle parameters, and we listened. Starting with 4D v19 R5, we provide you with a new command, Copy parameters, allowing you to write a seamless, more elegant, and easier-to-read code.

More options for object set enterable command

There is a multitude of interfaces and rules to be respected. Often, these constraints are linked to the domains of activity. Obviously, some data can be entered or not by the user. For a field that is not enterable, there are two ways of managing the interface:

  • users can still select and copy its content, for example to add it to a report
  • users are not allowed to copy the field or select its content
