  • Aphorisms about Microsoft Dynamics NAV: Updated Keyboard shortcuts for Dynamics 365 Business Central Release Wave 2

    Of all the places where I have seen the printable keyboard overview, all of them have only included the system shortcuts. What about the shortcuts that were included in Dynamics 365 Business Central Release Wave 2 application? I know that my customers wants a total overview. So I created one myself and you can download them in pdf and png format in English or Danish from here (sorry rest of the world ). Keyboard…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central Sandbox and performance testing

    During the last technical workshops done for Microsoft in Finland and Norway, I’ve discovered that many partners are doing (together with the customer) a lot of load testing and performance testing for their solutions and for the standard application in the online sandbox environment. Testing applications in the sandbox environment before moving them to the production environment is a good thing and in my opinion is…

  • Vjeko.com: Code annotations in AL – Please, don’t!

    One of good practices of writing C/AL Code for Microsoft Dynamics NAV since the dawn of civilization was annotating (commenting) code changes. If you are not sure what I mean by that, this is what I am talking about: While standards varied about > vs +, or < vs -, or what the annotations should include, there was absolute consensus that annotating changes is an absolute must. And it was a must. It was…

  • Vjeko.com: Control Add-ins Supercharged: Debugging with source maps

    So far I’ve shown how to configure gulp to help you with some basic JavaScript development tasks, such as bundling and minifying, and how to automate builds on every source file change. Let’s now take it to an entirely new level: debugging. If you ever tried to debug your control add-in source code using Visual Studio Code, you might have realized two things: first, that it’s actually pretty simple to do; and second…

  • Mark Brummel: Tip #65 | AppSourceCop & mandatoryPrefix

    Today I was a bit puzzled by getting this error message and how to fix it. error AS0054: The AppSourceCop configuration must specify one of the following properties: 'mandatorySuffix', 'mandatoryPrefix', or 'mandatoryAffixes' Yes, you can google the message but that only brings you to pages that describe the message, not how to fix it. It appears to be easy so I wanted to spare others the time.

  • Waldo's Blog : waldo.restapp

    For a few weeks now, people have been asking “can I have the restapp you were showing” – well, here it is: https://github.com/waldo1001/waldo.restapp But that would be not much of a blogpost – would it ;-). Just an example… During NAVTechDays, I did 2 sessions: Development Methodologies for the future {Connect app}² (with Vjeko ) In both sessions, I talked about the concept of “dependencies”. Yes indeed…

  • Vjeko.com: Control Add-ins Supercharged: Automating gulp.watch

    Yesterday you’ve seen how to use gulp to make it do something truly useful: bundling your JavaScript and CSS files. Introducing gulp for the purpose of bundling your files allows you to split your functionality into as many files as you want, but use only a single script and a single stylesheet file from your control add-in. That way you not only optimized how your browser loads the files, but you also eliminated the…

  • Vjeko.com: Control Add-ins Supercharged: Teaching gulp some useful tricks

    My last demo introduced gulp, an amazingly simple task automation tool. You’ve seen what it is, how to set it up, and how to create a simple hello-world task. Now it’s time to teach gulp some useful tricks and make it automate the “build” process for the JavaScript and CSS files. The first demo in this series used a single-file approach, and there I stated that it’s a bad thing to develop like that. It’s bad to put…

  • Mark Brummel: AL Extensions – File Naming and Organizing

    This is a blog that I wanted to write for quite a while, but it’s only until last week or so that I think I’ve found what I like to call, a “best practice” or if you will, a “Design Pattern”. What is this all about? With the move from C/AL to Visual Studio Code we also moved to file based instead of stored in database. This means we also have to give these files a name and we have the option to organise the…
