4D Chart

4D Chart is a now-deprecated plug-in to add graphing capabilities to 4D, largely replaced by 4D's native SVG features.

The plug-in is provided as-is for 4D v13 for those who still require it for compatibility purposes.

4D Pop Collection

4D Pop is a series of productivity components grouped into a toolbar that integrates perfectly with the 4D development environment. Filled with clever tools and immediately useful for developers, 4D Pop has many advantages.

A Mind for Productivity

Every 4D Pop component is a handy little nugget you’ll wonder how you ever did without. Created by 4D developers for 4D developers, they’ll help you save precious time on repetitive operations, be the little helpers you always dreamt of having, and put an even friendlier face on your development environment.

 

Hardware graphic acceleration

As of 4D v13, get boosted graphics rendering capabilities.

4D uses core OS technologies (CoreGraphics and Direct2D) for all its drawing, automatically taking full advantage of hardware acceleration when available, like in forms, images or rendering structures.

 

External data storage

Store pictures, blobs and text outside of the data file.

This feature reduces the size of the data file itself, so that operations that occur on the file happen much more quickly. 4D will automatically manage the storage and backup of the external data. Or, if you prefer, customize it to your own needs and manage the backup yourself. In the latter scenario, you can store the paths to these external files within 4D, which will remain part of the data that uses the file.

 

Indexed picture metadata

The 4D database engine indexes picture metadata.

Search images and get much faster results based on the keywords that are automatically indexed by the database engine.

 

Multilingual spell-checking

Take advantage of the power of a Hunspell-compliant spell checker, capable of supporting 100 languages.

This makes 4D’s already solid international deployment credentials even greater.

 

XPS Print Previews (Windows)

Get enhanced print previews under Windows.

Print preview under Windows now uses XPS. End users can take advantage of vectorial zoom and page navigation.

Externalized application settings

Application settings and preferences can now be stored external to your 4D application’s primary structure (e.g. the size of the database cache, HTTP port number, etc.).

This allows for smoother upgrades whenever you update your solutions, especially on large-scale deployments that have numerous users.

 

Introspection

Look deep inside your code with introspection features, gaining insight on your development.

Code introspection
The day hasn’t quite come where code can fully generate and maintain itself, but you can be confident in the integrity of your development efforts thanks to powerful new code introspection features.

 

Expandable HTTP client

An expandable HTTP client gives you access to more data.

Leverage HTTP to access external data
Your app can take advantage of the HTTP client to retrieve data from any HTTP server – beyond Web and Web services. Use the HTTP client as a go-between from one application or function and the world of third-party data and services available over HTTP.

 

A lighter, slicker HTTP client
Use less code. Use it as a proxy! With the new HTTP client, you can even build your own synchronization mechanism based on HTTP, no matter what the server is.
