By now, you’ve surely discovered the new ability to identify your users thanks to the SET USER ALIAS command. In 4D v18 R2, the command’s behavior has been extended. How? Keep reading!
4D Write Pro brings good news with 4D v18 R2: deleting inline or anchored pictures can now be done in a snap! Say hello to the new command, WP DELETE PICTURE.
4D v18 introduced an easy to use and powerful new way to create and send emails. A way that lets you send eye-catching emails based on HTML (with images, videos, and attachments), using just a few lines of code. In 4D v18 R2, we’ve added the ability to locally download your emails and remove them from your email server. In this blog post, we’ll go through the new possibilities this offers.
Want to adapt your application’s interface to your end user’s system preferences? Want to make sure your application’s interface isn’t obscured by the macOS dock or menu, or by the Windows taskbar? In this blog post, we’ll show you how!
So you’ve been testing out project databases … maybe you’ve created one or perhaps you’ve converted an existing binary application. Now, it’s time for us to show you how to use Git (the revision control system) with Github as the hosting service for your 4D application.
Blog post by guest author Joel Levy, a 4D developer at Sweetwater:
4D is the heartbeat of Sweetwater Sound. Our application harmoniously interconnects the diverse needs of over 700 concurrent users. We’re always seeking out more developers to fulfill the needs of a constantly growing company. Here’s a look into the strategies that Sweetwater uses to onboard developers new to the 4D platform.
PROCESS 4D TAGS has been enhanced with each 4D version and the latest additions as 4DCODE have drastically increased the use cases. What was previously a single line of code, is now often many lines, even pages, of 4D code.
Wondering how to create a nice and dynamic user interface? Typically when a form is resized, the form objects whose horizontal sizing or vertical sizing properties are set to move or grow, are automatically resized. In some cases (e.g., finer user interface management), developers choose to manage form object size and position by programming.

This blog post gives you the answers!
Before exchanging files (by email for example), we often compress them to reduce their size before transmitting them. With 4D v18, you can compress and uncompress your files by programming without the need for external libraries or tools. Here are the new commands that allow you to do so:
