November 17 Meeting – Avec classe: UI with Class – Vincent de Lachaux

Special Topic:
Avec classe: UI with Class – Vincent de Lachaux

For this final 4DMethod meeting of 2021, you are going to need imagination.  Think of how in the finale of classic kung fu movies, you would often see a Shaolin master off to the side with their arms crossed waiting to engage the battle and unleash the fury of the ages with their veritable martial arts skills.  Now instead imagine that scene, except it is a 4DMethod meeting on Zoom with a kind-hearted Frenchman, Vincent de Lachaux, ready to release his 4D mastery in the form of a set of classes to manage form objects in a 4D application interface. 

Yes… epic indeed!

4D v19 has introduced the ability to create classes as opposed to individual methods, which enables a whole new approach to structuring the language.  In fact, Vincent de Lachaux was able to achieve a similar effect in earlier 4D versions by creatively combining 4D Objects and Formulas.  Now that the capability has been formally integrated into the development environment, we can all take advantage of the elegance and simplified coding approach that classes allow.

Get a good night’s sleep and come ready to have your 4D awareness expanded!  Vincent’s demo will certainly be an enlightening exploration of new possibilities in 4D coding.
