    I'm happy to release B4A v6.30.


    There are many IDE related improvements in this update.
    • The docking and layout features are based on a new and improved framework. Floating code editors behave as regular windows.
    • Documentation tool tips while hovering over code elements:


    • Copy links in the tool tips that allow copying code examples.
    • Support for bookmarks:


    • New themes.
    • URLs in comments and strings are ctrl-clickable.
    • Class and module level documentation (taken from Process_Globals or Class_Globals subs).
    • Quick search shows a list of recent searches.
    • Designer uses the multiline text editor for text properties.
    • Unused libraries warning.
    • Debugger related improvements.
    • Custom views support "nullable colors". The default value of such fields looks like:


      This is an important feature as in many cases it is better not to set any color and use the system default.
    • Rect.Width and Height properties.
    • Service_TaskRemoved event added to the Starter service. This event is raised when the user closes the app from the recent apps list. This is an Android 4+ event.
    • FloatLabeledEditText - Text and hint colors can be set in the designer.
    • Regex.Replace / Replace2 - Regular expression replacement.
    • (Java) The Tag property is set when calling CustomView.replaceBaseWithView2 (replaceBaseWithView is deprecated).
    • _onkeydown and _onkeyup inline Java hooks.
    • Other bug fixes and minor improvements.
    Note that the debug key has been replaced. If you are using B4A-Bridge then you will need to uninstall the existing developed app before deploying the new one (required once).

    Users who are eligible for a free upgrade will receive an email with installation instructions.
    Other users will receive an email with a discount offer.

    Nice! Only one question: why more than 10 light themes, but only one dark?

    Great work and I always love how easily it just installs over previous version.... some products are not as easy.

    Great work Erel.

    I appreciate that there are never any compatibility issues with earlier versions; I think this is not easy to keep under control.

    Excellent as always :) .

    I noticed , when modules are in stand alone windows , when hovering over the B4A icon in taskbar, there is no captions - windows titles
    in preview thumbnails.
    Is that something that can be changed?
    Btw. I'm using windows10 with anniversary update see picture :

    It's not that is a big deal for me, I'm just posting my observation.
    That's why I posted it here, if it is required, I can open a new thread for the issue.
