Subforms as dynamic data objects – rethinking the 4D form – Kirk Brooks

September 26, 2018, 12:00 noon, CDT (UTC−5:00)

Special Topic:
Subforms as dynamic data objects – Rethinking the 4D form, Kirk Brooks

Kirk Brooks of The Energy House will introduce you to the new way of thinking about the whole structure of a 4D database as compared to simply figuring out how to make it do what 4D has always done before.  This 4D v17 demo encapsulates new approaches to interface development with a focus on object based definition of dynamic forms and subforms made available via component.

Kirk will share a development tool for building and installing toolbars on the fly in an app.  The process uses dynamic forms and an editor that gives you a way to build and manage these forms.

The second part is looking at the way it works. This leans heavily on the new ORDA features for managing forms, data in the forms, passing it back and forth between listboxes, subforms and disk files.
