+ Second plugin license set for 4D v14 - 50% discount

With the release of 4D v14, many developers will continue using their current environment while testing v14 and sometimes waiting for a future subversion.
Regular plug-in licenses (single user & server) are linked to the 4D serial number, therefore you will need an additional license set for your v14 single user and/or server(s).
A 50% discount is available on this second set of licenses, provided that you already have a license for a previous version of 4D, for each v14 license to purchase.
Enter the code "v14" under the "Promotion code" field when ordering from our website.

PrintList Pro is an easy-to-use tool for printing arrays and records on 4th Dimension layouts. As with AreaList Pro, PrintList Pro provides capabilities not available in native 4D, such as automatic column sizing, custom formatting, robust break level processing, calculated columns and more. PrintList Pro is the perfect complement to the AreaList Pro best seller plugin, providing a full-featured plug-in which can be used to print columns of data. You can use PrintList Pro for any standard columnar output (arrays or fields, calculated columns) and it be configured to easily print an AreaList Pro object - retaining all formatting features. Version 5.x is a full rewrite including Unicode mode, compatibility with AreaList Pro v9, 4D v11, v12, v13, v14 and above, with exciting new features.

PrintList Pro

Let your users create and edit their own reports without having to modify your 4D code or recompile your application. SuperReport Pro is the most powerful reporting tool for 4th Dimension. With over 50 developer routines, a full-featured developer API, enhanced user interface, enhanced HTML interface and web integration, SuperReport Pro is not your ordinary columnar reporting tool, it is a full-featured reporting solution for any application.   In addition, SuperReport Pro has been enhanced to provide greater flexibility when creating custom scripting interfaces, allow developers to install global callback interfaces and includes over 20 new wrapper routines to provide a foundation for improved report customization. Version 3 is a full rewrite, fully compatible with the previous API as well as the current Unicode and XML standards, with a new property-based API similar to AreaList Pro v9.
