Why components...

When you wish to add other features in 4D, you buy a plug- in realizedby another developer, then you make the integration in your software. Theinconvenience of this system is that if the developer of the plug-in stops itsdevelopment or takes time to update it,you have no solution.

You lose then not only the purchasing cost of this plug-in, butespecially the cost corresponding to the time you spent to integrate it in yourown program. You thus have to begin again the operation with another plug-in whichdo not work necessarily in the same way.

The components of Blue Company are written in 4D language, which is knownby developers. They are supplied with source code to ensure their timelessness.The developer can work with a code he masters and doesn’t lose the investment of the integration.

Our components

Blue Company has today realized 4 components :

  1. SVG calendar component
  2. SVG Charts component
  3. Direct use component
  4. VAT component

All our component are tested and maintained in 4D compatibility and so take advantage or its new features. They are moreover tested with the version14 of 4D. Sources are naturally supplied with every new version. Then, when a component is supplied to a developer, this one doesn’t depend on our company. Besides, the users of our components have at their disposal a Wiki documentation. They can refer to it, comment and have a collaborative work.
