In the How to connect Tableau with 4D blog post, you learned how to create a web data connector (WDC) to request data from 4D and visualize it in Tableau Public.
Bonus: I’ll also show you how to debug your WDC in Tableau Public using Chrome. Let’s get started!
In 4D Webinar – How to Connect Tableau with 4D, William Taylor (Technical Account Manager, 4D US) gave an overview of the Tableau tool and how it could be used to visualize your 4D data. In this blog post, we’ll dig into the technical details to give you a deeper understanding of how it works. This will allow you to build, for example, a visual showing the highest invoice total with nothing more than 4D REST and Tableau!
Have you ever wondered about 4D’s autocompletion feature or asked yourself why 4D suggests all functions used in the code? Since an object is a very generic type, 4D only knows what it’s really storing at runtime. However, that doesn’t help much when you’re writing your code.
4D now offers a new, alternative syntax which will greatly enhance autocompletion when declaring your variables.
Developing and debugging server code in project applications has become easier than ever in 4D v18 R4. Without further ado, let’s take a look at how to do it.
An increasing number of developers are using the Form command to link their form objects and many of you require easy programming access to the values of those objects. So, to help you access the value of a form object, regardless of its variable or expression, we’ve added two new commands: OBJECT Get value and OBJECT SET VALUE.
Let’s see how to use them!
