4D Write Pro – Horizontal Ruler

Automatically translated from English

With 4D v16 R2 you can display a graphical horizontal ruler at the top of the 4D Write Pro area ! Thanks to this horizontal ruler, the text can be easily formatted.

Prior to the existence of this graphic ruler, tabulations could only be managed by programming or using the 4D Write Pro interface widget. From now (4D v16 R2 and above), when the ruler is displayed (this is optional) the final user will have the opportunity to manage margins and tabulations easily and graphically.

4D View Pro – Variable Row Height in Listbox

Automatically translated from English

Displaying a list where the line height would exactly fit the content is a very common need. 4D View Pro is including a new feature so that you can now control the height of each row independently in a listbox to make it fit to its content. To know more about 4D View Pro, check out this blog post.

There are actually now two ways to define the row height in a listbox:

  • using new dedicated commands
  • using a new control array

Execute action upon listbox column resizing

Automatically translated from English

The event On Column Resize is now triggered “live” during the resizing of the list boxes as long as the user modifies the column widths (previously, it was generated only once, at the end of the resizing).

Thanks to this feature, 4D programmers will have the opportunity to create live and responsive interfaces based on the actual width of columns!

Use Unicode for texts in forms

Automatically translated from English

In 4D v16 the texts for all the form objects (static texts, buttons, check boxes, etc…) will be stored in Unicode, allowing you to use characters from different languages directly in the form editor.

Especially for Asian or Eastern European languages this will ease the development process.
