Share Your B4X Story

What are you using B4X for? What have you learnt along the way?

Another big project


Another success story in which the use of the B4J tool was crucial. The project is a little older, but I think it is interesting to many people.
I was in charge of preparing signature headers for imprinting data on pharmaceutical products. It is a mechanical print, such as on various medicines, where the batch control number and the date of validity and occasionally also the date of manufacture are printed.
In production, many batches of different products were made daily, so these...

Project build errors when on (NAS) network share

There some topics in these fora about build errors when the project is located at a network share.
I've succeeded to get similair errors when building a sample (Android) project named 'MyFirstProgram'

The network share is located at my Synolgy DS920 NAS, its based on Linux which is quite important.

Please let me explain the theory behind a network share. The protocol used between the client (Windows desktop) and server which is responsible for the network sharing of files/directories and...

I've always loved to programming… ever since I was a kid… I felt like I was creating…

I made it a profession, I started teaching programming to young and old as a trainer, I worked in several companies and in the last 2 decades I created my own company I always aim for success. I touched her too many times with successful products…

Bespoke Software/Programs have always been my forte, the purpose has been to empower clients who need something more than market programs. But...​

B4A Magazine

This magazine was bought by me in a local bookstore just when I started to know about B4A! It is like the God wanted me to get into B4A. There are many coincidences in my life and this is one of them due to my strong energy of "Law of Attraction".

I once donated some of my programming books together with this magazine to a local community library. When the library is closed, I took back this magazine.

This magazine is very valuable. It marks the start of my journey in B4X. However, I want...

What I have learned about DateTime

What are you using B4X for? What have you learnt along the way?

I am developing a POS with B4X using SQLite as the local database for the clients. I thought I am very experience in dealing with SQL and databases. I am very wrong!

In the past, I always store date and time data in table column as String in this format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss. It always work well. In some databases, we have datetime type of fields.

BUT, SQLite is a very simple database engine...


I just wanted to say a great big thank you to the B4X team !
This development environment and IDE is so powerful and easy to use once you gain the understanding
of the environment which is equally easy with just a little practice.

I have developed a stock take app using B4A and will write one with B4i as well.
It will eventually have many more features and functions.

The shared code with the Numpad project assisted greatly ! Much appreciated Erel !
The listview and list objects are so...

Hello everybody , just want to share , fast search and share code open to contributors and searchers, still under development ... little by little:

B4X enabled me to be an Automotive R&D Prototype Engineer

B4X is truly a modern Rapid Application Development suite that delivers every time. I can’t say enough good things about B4X but I will try 😊. I started using B4A in 2011 to write an application to read Jeep Transmission Temps while you are towing (and for diagnostics). This application was called DRIVE and it was the 1st app I had in the Android Market. I had to hack into the Transmission ECU, send commands via an ELM327 interface and display real-time data on the Android smartphone...

Industry products based on B4X - Yes we have, thanks to Saif

This is exactly not my story, but I am happy to post it here.

Refer to

I like to thank Saif (@sfsameer) for giving us industry products based on B4X. He has demonstrated that B4X can very powerful and very simple to code with.
Many members have seen the codes and can vouch for the elegant industry level products he and his team has made using B4X.

The list is so big that it is easier...

Using B4X Tips (?)

This is my experience with B4X. In B4X you create a program that runs on multiple platforms (Windows, Android, Ipads, etc.) at once. I am an amateur with some experience myself.
This sample app is a simple guessing game.
Here are my tips: (read the instructions about B4X anyway)

0. Don't be stupid like me and don't forget to change your packagename (thanks the Community) that saves a lot of wasted time...
1. Initially I developed it completely in B4J, so for Windows. But only use the B4X...

Using B4X to develop a mobile app to display LiDAR maps

I started off programming in the 1990s with the 68000 assembly language on the Commodore AMIGA. Some of you might remember the demo scene back then. The hardware was fixed and there was quite some competition between coders to get the most out of the Motorola 68000 microprocessor, clocked at 7 MHz.

Later, I decided against a career in game development and studied mechanical engineering. I got my PhD and co-founded a company specialising in vibrations in machine tools. Those vibrations...

The Power of B4X

I don't know if anyone made statistics regarding how many percent of a language we use.
I remember "upgrading" my Sinclair Spectrum computer to the Atari XE. The hardware was fabulous, but the built-in Atari Basic ruined it for me after the incredibly intelligent Sinclair Basic.
Then came the Atari ST with GFA Basic, which was another very intelligently written language.
Then Delphi, which is also a clean language, but there the programmer started drowning in it. There were endless...

looking for industry products based on B4X

Hello All,
My name is Yaniv Hanya, and something like year ago I decided to move to B4A on a project I build. I’m a very experienced developer for win apps and web, but the new project include a IOT device that connected to smart home device. The device consist on a tablet, running app that I built with my team, and they control a minilab chip controller.

I choose B4A after trying Xamarin, and Unity, with unsatisfying results, and because the great connectivity of the "frame work".

Now the...

So impressed with this product

A few months ago I started using B4A as I was looking to create a phone app for myself and my programming background is mostly in various forms of VB. After decades of using Microsoft IDE's it was refreshingly easy to get familiar with the B4A environment and once I discovered just how much capability it has, I was sold (and made a donation of course). The most striking thing though is how fast it is to do pretty much everything compared to what I was used to.

The advantages of such a...

Meine Story als Programmierer.

Guten Tag! :)
Ich möchte euch kurz mitteilen, wie ich zu Basic4Android gekommen bin.
Zuerst etwas über mich, ich bin ein Programmierer der jahrelang Windowssoftware mit Visual Basic.NET erstelle.
Da ich nun auch Apps für Android Smartphones programmieren möchte, habe ich mich auf die Suche gemacht, welche Sprache ich dann am besten lernen sollte.
Weil ich ungern Java oder C# lernen wollte und schon Visual Basic beherrsche,
habe ich mich deshalb für Basic4Android entschieden.
Vor allem...

B4X Starting over

I have no training in programming, coding. I just use my common sense and the crystal clear tutorials.
In about 2012 I once made a game in B4A and placed it in Google Play.
Now i resumed programming in 2021. Much is new and that takes some getting used to ...
It is now really B4X.
How beautiful it is. You program in B4J. Run and test in Windows until you are satisfied.
Than you already have your Windows app.
You only have to adjust the screens in B4A. In Android you have to deal with many...

My B4X story

My story goes back many years, when DOS was still mostly used. My first commercial application was made in Clipper for the purpose of inventory management in a material warehouse with barcode support.
FoxPro and DBase were still popular at the time.
Then Windows operating systems became increasingly important and it was necessary to adapt to this. Somehow I started with MSAccess 2.0 at the time because it allowed a lot of creativity. The first application was intended to print reports on...
