This update adds support for copying and pasting layouts between the three platforms. This is an important feature that will make it simpler to build cross platform applications.

Improvements:

  • Support for copying and pasting controls between the platforms: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4x-sharing-layouts-between-platforms.109296/#content

  • Ctrl + Click in the designer script to select the control.
  • Anchors checker: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/new-feature-anchors-checker.108805/
  • Generate B4XViews from the designer. Also supports changing the type of already declared variables.
  • Improved tool tips, add views from the views tree and other small improvements and bug fixes in the designer.
  • Empty lines will not be copied to the clipboard.
  • Regions are listed in the subs list:

  • Automatic foreground mode: better handling of several edge cases.
  • B4A Sdk Manager: temp folder is explicitly set by the IDE and fixes related to temporary resources cleaning.
  • Visual designer: Color property now includes the alpha channel. Simpler to use and behaves the same as in B4i and B4J.
  • New designer version. You will be asked to install it when B4A-Bridge connects.
  • FirebaseAdMob v1.60 - There are new requirements. See this post: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/firebaseadmob-v1-6.108552/#content
  • FirebaseAnalytics v1.11 - Includes the manifest definitions for FirebaseDatabase.

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

Note that B4J v7.80 was released as well: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/b4j-v7-80-is-available-for-download.109466/#post-683761

Antivirus Avast kicks in , and an error ShellExecuteEX failed;
code 255 the extended attributes are inconsistent (windows7)
is displayed on screen.

Error code could be caused by Avast virus scanner ?

What is the version number for B4i that support this feature (copying and pasting layouts)?
Good question. Version 6.00. It will be released next week.

first time I had to shutdown my antivirus for installation. Why?

Not sure. The installer is exactly the same as before. In many cases these issues disappear after enough users install the new version.

I also want to thank Erel for this awesome tool! I had to deal with Java and Android Studio recently and you can really see how much better B4A is. Great work!


I also had to deal with that Android Studio I could do very basic things, but with B4A you have the power in your hands it is very easy to do difficult things.

Erel this version does not work in my main project, tries to open and immediately exits, does not show any error in the debug, what could it be?
