I'm happy to release B4A v3.80. This version includes several major new features that make it easier to develop real-world solutions and reuse code between different projects.

New features and improvements:
  • Conditional Compilation & Build Configurations: http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/forum/threads/conditional-compilation-build-configurations.40746/
  • Shared code modules: http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/forum/threads/shared-code-modules.40747/
  • #AdditionalJar attribute - Allows adding jar files to the compilation. Together with JavaObject library it is now possible to use 3rd party libraries without a wrapper (not in all cases).
  • Project meta file - This file stores "dynamic" project state: modules visibility and order, collapsed nodes, bookmarks and breakpoints. This file should be excluded from source controls.
  • Bit.InputStreamToBytes - Reads all the data from an input stream and returns an array of bytes with the data. The input stream is closed automatically.
  • JSON generator supports arrays as well as lists.
  • CreateMap keyword - A shorthand method for creating and filling Maps. For example:
    B4X:
    Dim m1 AsMap = CreateMap("Key1": 10, "Key2": 20)
  • Array keyword - The type can be omitted. In that case the array type will be Object. The Array keyword now supports creating empty arrays.
  • Spinner.DropDownBackgroundColor property
  • Debugger can optionally show hexadecimal values.
  • Auto complete for layouts and assets files:

  • Libraries filter box:



  • Add existing modules supports multiple selection.
  • New configurable color: ToolTipDefaultText (color of non-code tool tips text)
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.

All users who are eligible for a free upgrade should receive an email with the link to the full version. Please allow 12 hours for this mail to arrive.
Other users will receive an email with a discount offer.

Projects saved in v3.80 cannot be opened with older versions of B4A (due to the new meta files).

Good job Erel.

I Researched a lot before working with B4A. A great tool!
My application is developing well and runs fine.

God bless you.
