You know 4D Pop.


Today, we will talk about a new 4D Pop module, shipped with 4D v12.1: KeepIt.


Please note the first sentence has no question mark: “You know 4D Pop – period”. This is on purpose: All 4D developers know what 4D Pop is. I am aware that writing this could be inappropriate: If a reader does not know 4D Pop, he/she could then feel a bit uncomfortable. But this can’t happen: All 4D developers know what 4D Pop is. QED.

This isn't the latest slogan from a movement of angry accountants, but a very serious proposition that I'd like to cover today.


In our profession as application developers, we have ever-growing masses of data to store and to manipulate. More and more often we have to produce results based on this mass of data, and understandably our users don't want to wait too long for a response while they query the database, looking for a specific result, a list, or a dashboard.

A major work of the 4D documentation, the “Design Reference” manual is now available in dynamic HTML format in the 4D Doc Center. Completely revised and updated for version 12.1, this manual describes the entire 4D design environment, from the Structure editor to the Application builder, including every major element such as the Form editor and the Maintenance and Security Center.


This manual now enjoys all the benefits of 4D Doc Center interactivity including advanced features like associating custom key words with topics. Also, searches throughout the 4D documentation will be enhanced by including results from this manual. For example, searching for the word “menu” will now return articles describing the Menu editor in the Design environment in addition to commands from the Menu theme of the Language Reference manual.


To access the "v12 Design Refence" now, click here.


We hope that this manual will meet your documentation needs for the 4D development workshop. Please feel free to share with us any remarks or suggestions for improvements.
