As a developer, you’re used to handling events inside form objects. The most common is the on clicked form event which can be used in most objects, including list boxes. In this particular object, clicks can be managed either at the list box level itself or within the column methods.
And starting with 4D v18 R6, the on clicked form event is triggered whether a cell is being edited or not, giving you increased control and improving the interface.
Lately, email servers on the web have started to move to OAuth 2.0 authentication to increase security. Starting with 4D v18 R6, 4D provides a way to set the OAuth 2.0 authentication mode of a connection. Keep reading for the details!
The WebAdmin internal component has been included in 4D v18 R6. This component is the foundation of many future administration modules. It’s web-based so that you can use it with headless environments. The first published web-based administration module is the Data Explorer, which we’ve explained thoroughly in this blog post.
Let’s see how to set it up.
As a 4D developer, you may have dreamed of visualizing your data immediately and easily while you update/create it. Or maybe you’re a 4D administrator and you need to quickly find a record that causes an error due to inappropriate data. This has been possible with 4D’s built-in query interface and output form, but it can take time to customize this form and you may need a more responsive tool.
How about a modern and user-friendly web interface to view your data? And for a cherry on the top, what if this interface comes with a powerful query engine? Dream no more! All this is now a reality thanks to Data Explorer, a new tool provided as a Preview for you to evaluate it and give us your feedback.
Of course, it will be enhanced in future versions.
Let’s discover it now!
In this blog post, you discovered the power that shareable entity selections can offer. 4D focuses on data sharing because, in the long run, it leads to performance.
But we’re aware that this strategy might not be your current strategy. We’ve followed the discussions on the forum and understood your comments and feelings.
To soften this step and give you more flexibility and tools, we’ve made some enhancements regarding the nature (shareable or non-shareable) of entity selections.
We know how important it is for both you and your customers to have 4D View Pro spreadsheets in your native language. That’s why 4D v18 R5 now provides a set of five supported languages! In addition to English, we’ve added support for French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Portuguese!
Numbers … big, small, very big, very small … No matter their size, it’s always better if they’re easy to read. In most countries and languages, separator characters are usually used to separate thousands (or tens of thousands) and there is always a character to distinguish the decimal part from the rest of the number. When it’s time to align these numbers correctly in documents, “decimal tabulators” are used (which are based on the decimal separator character of the numbers).
But what if the documents contain numbers from different countries and the numbers aren’t formatted in the right way? Let’s take a closer look at this!
If you’re interested in the user interface, you may have already used the On before keystroke and On after keystroke events. You’ll certainly be happy to know that the handling of these events has been greatly enhanced with 4D v18 R5. In addition, a new command has been created to determine if there is ongoing input when the On before keystroke event is generated. Let’s find out more!
