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

Woooh ! After AS3 from Adobe, Android, et Kotlin from Mr Google, now, B4A !!!
I use to code under VB, VBA and so on.
But I recognize that this software is like a cake !
Thank you to the creator and to the team too!
I'have read the booklets, many tutorials, and even if I've built under different softwares, here, I see a real efficency.

First of all I have to say: "Outstanding version. Thanks @Erel"!
I starting a new XUI project and I made a simple layout using a panel and a imageview as child view.

LITTLE ISSUE ABOUT IMG FILE
When I copy and paste the panel view (using copy and paste from "Albero View" translated in Italian) within B4i 6.00 Designer (new fresh project) the layout works fine (it runs without errors and with the right size and properties) but I have a little issue because I see a white screen instead of the image that I linked to the imageview.

TEST CASE DETAILS

- B4A 9.50 (XUI LAYOUT CREATION)
1) Using B4A Designer I have added a panel and within it I attached an imageview
2) Using B4A file tab I have created a folder named "Brand Images" and within this folder I putted a file named "kid_and_dog.jpg".
3) I linked the image to the image view and when I run the app and it works fine (I see the image when the app starts).

- B4i 6.00 (XUI LAYOUT PASTE)
1) I pasted the copied panel (from B4A project) within the B4i Three View and it works fine
2) I ran the B4i project within the iPhone emulator and I saw a white screen.
3) I checked within B4i / Designer / Files and I saw an empty folder named "New Group"

I'm wrong? Is there another way to copy the linked files ?

Thank you in advance for your help :)
Luca.

hello, sorry if placed in this thread
I updated b4A from version 9.02 to 9.50, but in version 9.50 clicking tools >> Run AVD Manager does not open.
By clicking on tools >> Sdk Manager >> AVD Manager everything is ok.
where am I wrong?
