4D Indexes

This example shows the possibilities of using indexes in 4D v11 SQL.


4D v11 SQL's index types include:

 

- BTree index for non-repeated values (IDs, names, etc.)
- cluster index for repeated values (Booleans, titles (M., Ms., etc.))
- composite index for sorting (FirstName+LastName, City+ZipCode, State+City, etc.)
- keyword indexes for texts

 

This also covers indexes created stored in a separate file.

 

To demonstrate their efficiency, this example explains how to choose the correct index type.
 

4D Objects

This example shows all the interface objects managed by 4D.


These include:

 

- variables
- buttons
- field lists
- checkboxes
- etc.

 

To use it, you can click on the buttons representing the Form editor tool bar or you can select a specific type of object directly from a dropdown menu.

4D User Forms

With 4D, users can modify certain forms.

 

Starting with a classic "clients - invoices - invoices_lines" structure, two forms can be duplicated then modified by the users: "envelopes" and "invoices."

 

These two templates have been deliberately left "open" so the final user can modify the text, formats and paper orientations, as well as margins, objects, etc.

 

Each form can be duplicated as many times as necessary. This allows, for example, specifying several envelope formats as well as different templates for the invoices.

Web Area

The new Web Area form object, introduced in 4D v11 SQL Release 2, allows you to display browser-accessible content in your 4D forms.


Web sites, local HTML pages, PDFs, movies, animations, JavaScript controls - all of them are at your diposal.


This demo uses Web Area to create a simple web browser, Google Maps mashup, document viewer, and canvas viewer in 4D v11 SQL.
