That also includes a crucial step: choosing a main color for the app. That’s why, since the introduction of 4D for iOS, the main color of your mobile application was defined by the dominant color of your application’s logo.
With 4D v19 R2, we’re giving you a feature that lets you easily define the main color of your iOS and Android app, by selecting it from a color picker fully integrated into the project editor.
Project mode allows you to easily track changes with Git, the most popular version control system. But often, you don’t want to track all the files of your project in the Git repository. 4D now offers you the possibility to define what not to track in your new projects.
Delimited files such as “.csv” or “.txt” are commonly used formats for importing or exporting data. Because delimited files can be generated and manipulated easily, more and more data published on the Web is tabular data, usually published as comma-separated values.
A good way to format this data and show it to your customers is to use 4D View Pro.
For a few weeks, you’ve been able to use the offline action feature, and we’ve already obtained great feedback about it.
As we’re constantly improving the product’s features set, application users can edit and retry sending pending tasks that failed due to server validation. Let’s see how it works.
Starting with 4D v19 R2, inline as well as anchored images inside 4D Write Pro documents will benefit from new formatting types.
We’ve also made it much easier to format the images used as background of documents, sections, paragraphs, etc.
Let’s find out more about these enhancements.
We are pleased to announce that 4D for Android is available with 4D v19 R2.
Many features are already available, and with each new release, we’ll enrich the possibilities so that 4D for Android’s features match those of 4D for iOS.
What’s best is that the same mobile project can generate both native iOS and native Android apps. We made sure to provide very similar user experiences on both platforms while still respecting their standards.
how to extend your application and go mobile
The mobile project editor is fully integrated into 4D. You can design and build native iOS and Android apps quickly and easily without programming. If you want to go further, you can open the generated application with Android Studio or Xcode and customize it with Kotlin or Swift.
The other big advantage of a native application is that you can access the data even when you’re offline.
Beta testing for 4D v19 R2 is starting today! Here is what this feature release has in store for you:
- 4D for Android (our development platform for Android devices) is now final with 4D v19 R2.
- Speaking of mobile, new features for iOS and Android platforms are now available, allowing you to customize your app’s color, adapt it to dark or light mode, sort its local data, and more!
- 4D View Pro: Analyze data with pivot tables. Import and export CSV files. Manage your sheets by programming. Easily handle page breaks (for printing purposes) from the user interface.
- 4D Write Pro: More display options for inline and anchored pictures. We’ve also made it easier to format the images used as background of documents, sections, paragraphs, etc.
- Features that incorporate best practices such as defining a default .gitignore file and managing Byte Order Mark (BOM) and End of Line (EOL).
- Features to enhance either your experience as a developer, such as getting access to the details of a class function from the code editor, or your end-users’ experience, such as automatic component signing on Mac.
- And more (see below)!
