  • Find all references, quick search and find subs / modules tool windows were rewritten and are now syntax colored, the text is selectable and you can jump directly to the selected position:


  • Subs code appears in the quick info windows:


    This code is also selectable and clickable.
  • Show Sub in window:


    Allows showing subs in a floating windows. The text is selectable and clickable.
    This can be triggered from all kinds of places including:




  • Positions and layouts of all windows are preserved.
  • Search results font can be configured from Tools - IDE Options - Font Picker:


  • IDE shows available updates:


  • Recommended targetSdkVersion is set to 28.
  • Alpha value of text colors can be set in the designer.
  • Fix for a crash related to B4XView.Color with Android 10 and targetSdkVersion >= 29.
  • Better handling of errors in the IDE.
  • Deprecation warnings for modal Msgbox.
  • Animation to zero size no longer causes an exception in new versions of Android.
  • Starter service subs can be accessed directly without using CallSub.
  • Warning and errors do not hide other information:


  • Copy warnings from list of warnings.
  • Generate 'Create Type' Sub:


  • Copy events:


  • Modules list is saved in lexicographic order to avoid unexpected changes with source control tools.
  • Resources in implicitly referenced b4x libs are now accessible.
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.

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

B4A will become free in a couple of weeks, therefore discount offers will not be sent like with previous releases.

Note that B4J v8.10 has also been released with similar improvements.
