6 Changes to Check Before Transitioning to Project Mode – Erick Lui
The benefits of switching your older 4D application from binary (.4DB/ .4dbase) to Project mode are many and growing every day as new features are often released as Project mode only. Take advantage of classes, modern source control like Git, easier multi-version development, offline multi-user coding, native Apple Silicon chip support, and more.
However the leap to Project mode can seem a bit intimidating. Don’t worry! It is easier than you might think, especially if you get a few good tips before jumping right in. In this meeting presentation, Erick Lui will walk through some of the common tasks you’ll want to handle before making the switch.
While every application will vary in complexity, it is still good to know possible issues that may occur with the transition and to resolve the issues before fully committing to Project mode. The presentation will review how to handle several tasks in advance of the conversion, such as replacing logic and interface elements for:
- Highlight buttons
- Picture transparent property
- Radio buttons grouped by name
- Users to blob
- Picture library
- List saving
The presentation will demo each of these changes between binary and Project mode and showcase the steps to resolve them. Be pro-active and learn how to handle these common updates before the differences between modes catch you off-guard!
