The structure editor is a crucial element of your project. First of all, it allows you to create your structure. But above all, it will enable you to visualize your tables, fields, and relations during your developments, which is always helpful for manipulating data.
4D v19 R6 brought the support of external source code editors (e.g., Visual Studio Code), allowing them to handle 4D code and provide them with standard functionalities such as syntax highlighting using the Visual Studio Code extension.
4Dv19 R7 brings two new capabilities: Go To Definition and Signature Help.
The current trend is for light, clean, soft colors and rounded corners.
For you to embellish your applications and follow the latest trends, we have added the possibility to round the corners of static texts and input texts.
With 4D v19R6, we brought you a new way to perform HTTP requests: HTTP classes. At that time, some of the HTTP classes functionalities were not final, as we wanted to adapt them to the new syntax. It is now done! In v19R7, compressed responses, chunked responses, and redirections functionalities are now complete.
As a bonus, we also added a new way to log HTTP requests. And as it’s helpful to everyone, this new logging is available to the new HTTP classes as well as for the legacy syntax.
The drag and drop action is a standard action in computer interfaces. In the case of list boxes, pressing the “Alt” key is necessary to move several items simultaneously. Or rather “was” because, starting with 4D v19 R7, this is no longer a requirement at all!
When a 4D Write Pro document is in edit mode, it’s often helpful to know if it has actually been modified by the end user. Based on this information, actions or interfaces can be adjusted to be more user-friendly.
Starting with 4D v19 R7, this is now easier than ever.
To ensure that your application follows the latest design trends and that your users are blown away by a minimalistic, stylish, and great looking, we have updated the Material Design library.
Spreadsheets are great versatile tools. From dashboards to input/output UI, spreadsheets provided by 4D View Pro can quickly solve a lot of situations encountered by your end-users.
We previously explained using the 4D View Pro table feature to display and modify data collections. Using 4D View Pro tables, you may need to add or remove columns later on, depending on end-users needs. To do so, from 4D v19 R7, 4D View Pro has several new commands to manage your table columns and rows. Let’s see how it works.
Formulas are an integral part of 4D Write Pro documents. They allow the integration of a lot of information coming from the database. Creating documents and templates that include formulas, combined to physical constraints (number of pages, paper size), can lead to non-wysiwyg designs. A new mode of displaying formulas is now available to facilitate this design.
This new feature improves the local resources management of 4D Client merged applications executed with Windows Remote Desktop Services. Lets’ see how.
