4D Inc. today announced the release of
4D View, a spreadsheet and data presentation plug-in. The plug-in is available for download from the 4D Web site.
The plug-in works with 4th Dimension and 4D Server, and provides spreadsheet functions including calculations, simulations, projections and analyses. Data presentation processes like programming dynamic input interfaces can be done using the plug-in, along with the ability to view data in a variety of forms like printable lists, dynamic calculation lists and input formats.
“4D View also achieves compatibility between 4D Calc and AreaList Pro by automatically re-mapping the commands used by these plug-ins, eliminating the need for re-coding,” explained the developer.
4D View can also be configured by 4D developers based on their own programming needs. Images can be incorporated into database apps using programming or style sheets, as well.
In other news, 4D Inc. has also released a new version of 4D itself. 4D v6.8.1 sports improvements like customizable printing options, improved rendering and interface programming options, SSL, PPP and IMAP 4 protocol support integrated into the 4D language and more.
The new update is available for download from the 4D Web site.
