4D Systems all new Workshop 4 IDE supports multiple development environments, to cater for different user requirements and skill level.
The Designer environment enables the user to write 4DGL code in its natural form to program the display module.
A visual programming experience, suitably called ViSi, enables drag-and-drop type placement of objects to assist with 4DGL code generation and allows the user to visualise how the display will look while being developed.
An advanced environment called ViSi-Genie doesn’t require any 4DGL coding at all, it is all done automatically for you. Simply lay the display out with the objects you want (similar to ViSi), set the events to drive them and the code is written for you automatically. ViSi-Genie provides the latest rapid development experience from 4D Systems.
A Serial environment is also provided to transform the display module into a slave serial display module, allowing the user to control the display from any host microcontroller or device with a serial port.
The Workshop 4 IDE is available for download from its product page: 4D Workshop 4 IDE
With each 4DevBoard, you also receive the following:
Warranty Note: PmmC/Firmware or user application code programming should only be carried out using the 4D Programming cable (4D Programming Cable). Any malfunction because of custom or third party USB to Serial converters or Serial(RS232) to Serial(TTL) level converters will void the warranty.
It also applies to all 4D products which require an interface from the PC to the module for testing using 4D Software Test Tools.
It applies to all the purchases on or after 1st of July 2011.
