GDPR & HFSQL: Automatic data masking

WINDEV - Data masking

What is data masking?

Data masking helps you prevent sensitive data exposure by hiding it from certain users.

Data masking also makes it possible to secure information and prevent it from spreading.

This technique helps you meet GDPR requirements.

How to mask data?

To mask a column in a database table, simply use the data model editor.

Then, when a user tries to access this column (item), the server returns masked data.

New features 187 to 192 WD WB WM

Spatial data in HFSQL

"Find all charging stations within a 3-mile radius"

WINDEV - What is spatial data?

What is spatial data?

In version 2024, HFSQL supports spatial data. Spatial data refers to geometric and geographic data such as:

  • position
  • shape
  • extension

You can store these types of data in HFSQL databases and perform advanced SQL queries, for example: "list of parcels a given path goes through" or "list of schools within a 1-mile radius".


SELECT TOP 5 * FROM charging_stations ORDER BY ST_Distance(charging_stations.position, {pMyPosition})

New WLanguage types

To handle spatial data, use these new WLanguage types:

  • Point2D
  • Polygon2D
  • Linestring2D
  • PointGeo
  • PolygonGeo
  • LinestringGeo
  • ...

Spatial index for faster queries

To optimize performance on spatial queries, HFSQL has introduced spatial indexes.

Spatial indexes make it possible to quickly process very large volumes of data, which is an essential feature given the size of most spatial datasets.

A spatial index can be described with a single click in the data model editor.

New features 258 to 261 WD WB WM

Flexbox in your windows and mobile windows

WINDEV - Flexbox overview

Flexbox overview

Flexbox is an adaptive layout method that allows controls to be positioned relative to each other.

Although it is mostly used in web applications, this mode is also used on Windows and mobile devices, for controls with dynamic content (e.g., long text spanning over several lines or translation into several languages), or when a window is resized.

Controls are laid out in rows or columns, according to precise rules which are cumulative.

Positioning is relative rather than pixel-based. Flexbox can be used on the entire window, or only on a group of controls.

Use Flexbox in an entire window

Using Flexbox to distribute elements in an entire window can solve positioning conflicts that may occur when a window is resized.

New features 232 to 235 WD WB WM

New Code Editor control

An instant favorite among power users

WINDEV - New Code Editor control

New WLanguage Code Editor control

The new Code Editor control enables advanced users to enter or edit calculation formulas in applications, for example.

By default, each control now includes a generic description. You can customize this description where necessary.

New features 789 to 792 WD WB WM

New CSS Grid control

Even more advanced page layouts

New CSS Grid control

CSS Grid is a layout system used in web pages.

Positioning is defined in cells that are laid out in rows and columns. These cells contain controls.

Unlike Flexbox, which is one-directional (horizontal or vertical), CSS Grid is two-directional (horizontal and vertical).

CSS Grid can be used for the entire page, or only for a given section.

You can combine grids and Flexbox containers.

Use the 7-tab window to define the properties of the new CSS Grid control. You can write custom CSS code in a specific section of this window.

New features 094 to 122 WD WB WM

New WLanguage features

WLanguage logo

Create your own WLanguage types

In version 2024, developers can create their own WLanguage types.

An example is the price of powder, defined in grams, with 4 decimal places. Rather than defining the corresponding variable in type numeric and specifying the number of digits after the decimal point each time, in version 2024 you can create a type named PricePowder, for example.

This type can then be used as a native WLanguage type.

Handle Null values

In version 2024, WLanguage supports "Null" values on all types.

This allows you to directly handle NULL items (columns) in a database.

Variables become "nullable".

Nullable variables must be declared with the "Nullable" extension attribute.

// Declaration of nullable variable
n is int<nullable>
// Short syntax
n is int?
// New operator to retrieve the variable or
// another value if Null
v is int = n ?? 0
// Gets the default value of the type if n is null
v is int = n ?? *
// New operator used to call a procedure for
// a non-null variable, otherwise the line is not executed
s is string? = "Hello world!"
r is string = s?.Left(5)??""

Intuitive file path and URL building

In version 2024, you can build strings containing file paths by separating elements with "+" and "/" characters.


FilePath is string = Drive/Folder/Queue 
FilePath is string = Folder/Queue

Add your own functions to controls

In version 2024, you can define your own functions for a specific type of control using prefix syntax.



Your own functions will appear in the code completion suggestions.

Check the format of tax identifiers (NIF, TIN, etc.)

You can now check the format of tax identifiers using the WLanguage CheckTaxNumber function, prefixed by the corresponding country.

For example: France.CheckTaxNumber

The tax identifiers of the following countries are currently supported:

  • France
  • Canada
  • Switzerland
  • Belgium
  • United States
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Germany
  • Brazil

New type: Simplified numeric formatting

A new type for formatting numbers is available: NumericFormat.

The properties of this type can be used to specify the number of digits after the decimal point, separators, etc.

A code wizard makes the task even easier.


PriceFormat is NumericFormat

PriceFormat.DigitsAfterPoint = 2
PriceFormat.Prefix = "$"
PriceFormat.DecimalSeparator = "."
PriceFormat.DecimalSeparator = ","
PriceFormat.Sign = nfsMinusIfNegative

Price is string
Price = NumericToString(16945201.986, PriceFormat)
// Price contains “$16,945,201.99”
New feature 099 WD WB WM

Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive

WLanguage - Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive

3 new WLanguage types have been introduced: gglDrive, oDrive, dpDrive.

The new family of Drivexxx functions allows you to perform the operations listed below on any file stored using these services.

Here are some of the available features:

  • list the contents of a folder
  • download
  • upload
  • copy
  • delete
  • rename
  • move
  • ...

The generated code is independent from the storage service used.

//Upload file to Drive
MyDrive is Drive
//Standard syntax
DriveUploadFile(MonDrive, "C:\DocsToProcess\CR-489-884.pdf",  "/My documents/2023/")
//Prefix syntax
MyDrive.UploadFile("C:\DocsToProcess\CR-489-884.pdf", "/My documents/2023/")
New features 781 to 783 WD WB WM

CSS styles: Awesome new features

New CSS style window

The CSS style window now provides more useful information for manipulating CSS styles.

On each control state, a badge indicates the number of changes made to the initial CSS style.

Then, for each CSS style state, the tab indicates the number of changes made in the tab itself.

This allows you to keep track of the tabs where you made changes.

Use 10 times less styles: Multiple CSS styles in an element of a control

Use 10 times less styles: Multiple CSS styles in an element of a control

In version 2024, you can use multiple CSS styles for each element of a control:

  • caption
  • input area
  • border
  • table header
  • text within tables, etc.

As development continues, CSS styles start to pile up.

In version 2024, the Style tab has been improved and now allows you to use a combination of multiple CSS styles for each element of the control.

New features 800 to 803 WD WB WM

Web compatibility: Tailwind CSS

WLanguage logo

A library of preset utility classes

Tailwind CSS is a widely used CSS utility class framework.

Tailwind CSS is made up of CSS classes that define numerous style options.

WEBDEV 2024 is compatible with this framework. Tailwind CSS classes also describe positioning rules.

These rules are supported by WEBDEV controls laid out in Flexbox containers or CSS grids.

Tailwind CSS in WEBDEV

There's nothing to install or configure. Simply enter the name or names of the Tailwind CSS classes to be used in the "Styles" tab.

WEBDEV automatically generates the CSS style sheets corresponding to the Tailwind CSS classes used.

The WEBDEV page editor shows controls exactly how they will look using Taillwind CSS classes.

New features 198 to 199 WD WB WM

Database Native Connectors

Native Connectors: increased speed

Native Connectors: increased speed

In version 2024, Native Connectors (Oracle*, SQL Server*, AS/400*, DB2*, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, xBase, MariaDB, Informix*, Progress*, Sybase*, etc.) handle all aspects of multithreaded programming.

Several queries can be executed simultaneously.
Stored procedures are no longer blocking.

This results in faster applications.

*Available separately

New features 921 to 924 WD WB WM

WEBDEV Application Server

Remotely update running Application Servers

Remotely update running Application Servers

In version 2024, you can remotely update one or more Application Servers.

This updated can be run:

  • From the WEBDEV administration application, via Remote Desktop Connection.
  • From the WEBDEV server administration website.

Automatically update running Application Servers

In addition to the previous new feature, it is now possible to make Application Server updates fully automatic.

Updates can be made as soon as a new version of the Application Server is available on the WINDEV website.

Automatically restore a website after an unexpected error

When a website encounters a fatal error: connection failure, unexpected update, fatal programming error, etc., the Application Server automatically restores the site.

An incremental backoff strategy (n attempts every 10 seconds, then n attempts every minute, then n attempts every hour) and a maximum number of retries, allow you to seamlessly restore websites.

Load balancing between all active accounts

Load balancing between all active accounts

This is a highly anticipated feature in the Application Server: the ability to fairly distribute CPU resources between WEBDEV accounts.

By default, the Application Server distributes workload evenly between all active accounts at a given time.

Therefore, any resource-intensive process will not slow down the websites of other accounts.

No account can take over the CPU.

Version 2024 is available, but some features will be released in the coming months.

"*" indicates required fields.

The data you provide will be treated confidentially.

The data is processed for professional purposes only.

It will NOT be shared with other companies.
