The three tools are being updated together. 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:



  • 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:


B4A only improvements:
  • 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.

B4A: SDK and AVD Managers won't run, i.e. I click on the relevant option and nothing happens at all.

I'm running windows 10.

I cannot compile this project, there is no reference to the jmqtt library, although the library is in the additional libraries folder.

Please start a new thread for this.

Which version of Java are you using (Tools - Configure Paths)? If Java 11 then make sure to use the Java 11 downloaded from: https://www.b4x.com/b4a.html

Yes, that's the one I'm using. The error might be related to the bug I reported here.

I tried with Oracle JDK 8 as well with the same result.

OK, to be sure I reinstalled all the software required and set the paths as per the Online instructions. I first ran B4A 9.30 and I got the bug I reported above. I then installed the B4A 9.5 beta and nothing happens. I suspect it has to do with the bug I reported. Just speculation, of course as there's no log I can check.

Build Tools: 27.0.1
