4D has always given users excellent control of printing of data from output forms and reports.

4D v12 brings even greater control and variety of print output. List boxes can be printed. The new Print object command lets you print any object at any precise position on the page. And new to Windows, 4D can now print directly to PDF using the PDFCreator driver.

Rich Text

New for 4D v12, text within a Text Area, List Box, variable, alpha field, etc., can have multiple styles applied.


Text styles include font, size, style (i.e. bold, italics), text color and (under Windows) background color.


Style properties can be stored with the text itself, as HTML-style <SPAN> tags, and support both Setters and Getters.


PHP Integration

4D v12 lets you directly execute PHP 5.3 scripts within 4D applications, thanks to our FastCGI compiled interpreter.

(You may use other interpreters, providing they are compatible. See documentation for details.)


Go beyond Web scripting and add real functionality to your applications.


You get access to a wealth of utility libraries available via PHP, providing functions such as:

  •  ciphering and hashing (MD5)
  •  handling of HTML files
  •  image handling
  •  LDAP access
  •  COM access (for Microsoft Office documents)
