Canvas v2 for 4D

Took some time, but it’s here

BannerRob Laveaux’s Pluggers announced Canvas v2.0. It’s a plugin for 4D and allows the developer to draw all kinds of things on the fly – and fast.
Rob states:

After a long development cycle, we are very pleased to announce the release of Canvas Plugin version 2.0. This version is a major rewrite of the plugin using native modern graphic engines such as Quartz and GDI+. The plugin now supports modern graphic capabilities such as transparent colors and images, rotated objects, shadows, gradients, dash patterns, image fill patterns, unicode text, svg, pdf support. The event handling system has also been rewritten. A new On Timer event has been added. Basic animation capabilities have been added. In short this is a release packed with new features and we hope you will enjoy it.

BTW, Pluggers has some fantastic plugins. I’m using myself NTK, myConnect and PDF-Viewer. I could do this all with 4D build-in tools. If I would charge myself what I charge clients – it doesn’t make sense to program it in 4D. Throwing the plugin  in is cheaper, faster and works.
