edit print layout

Hello experts!

I have a question about the object designer. I would like to add a picture box, which contains the company logo!

Can you please help me with some documentation or training videos, about how to edit print layout?

Thank you

  • If you are talking about 'Dynamics NAV' just look at the standard Sales and Purchase reports, the image is uploaded in 'Company Information', and then:

    C/AL Global: CompanyInfo - record - 'Company Information'

    Code: Report - OnInitReport()

    Copy or Add a PictureBox to your new Report with SourceExpr = CompanyInfo.Picture

    Hello David!


    Thank you for your answer, I tried and it worked. thanks a lot

    Just one thing, every time i need to modify something i have to modify the code as well? If i simply add a new field it wont work until i modify the code?

    Sorry i am a beginner

    Hi Otto,

    No code required for standard fields in the report, the picture is not on the reports base table, so what you are doing is getting the record, as the pictiue is a blob field you have to use calcfields, this is the same when using a table variable flowfield.

    I was self taught when I started with navision in1996, there were no tutorials and the best way I found was to find a report that done most of what I wanted, saved it as a new object number then worked on that, now on the home page there are a couple of books for learning Dynamics NAV.

    You will get answers to development questions in the "Dynamics NAV" forum, rather than this one, I have a couple of tutorials on my website, they are quite high level but you can follow the code.
