Comprising of two parts, this component allows you to have a simple saving and retrieving data values tagged by a code, and gives a modern and professional interface to database preferences.
This component provides a set of routines to set and retrieve 4D data types. Each setting can be set and retrieved with a text handle to make management easy.
In addition, any handle can be used on its own for global values, or with a reference for filtering of the same type of preference. As an example, this reference can be used to set user specific over-rides for any preference.
This component requires a table to be added to the host database.
The second part of the component allows you to display a preferences interface, inspired by the OSX System Preferences, categorising items with customisable icons, giving a rich and and flexible interface.
