  • Mark Brummel: Tip #60 | Suppress Warnings in Visual Studio Code

    One of the most anoying things about writing AL code in Visual Studio Code is getting warnings that you cannot fix. Simply impossible. My “favorite” warning is this one For almost a decade it’s been possible to sort on flowfields from code and in reports and in most cases it works fine. On larger datasets it might require a covering index for performance. This warning is a joke because it suggests…

  • Mark Brummel: Tip 59# | Multiple Start Configurations in Visual Studio Code

    When developing extensions for Business Central you have a wide array of publishing options to choose from. My most used options when working on the ForNAV Customizable Report Pack are our Sandbox and Docker. Testing is best on the Sanxbox for two reasons.

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise: checking extension’s status via Powershell

    An interesting question pops out yesterday: with Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise , how can I programmatically check if a particular extension is installed or not? The standard Powershell command (in the Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Apps.Management  module) that gets informations about an extension in a specified Business Central Server instance is the Get-NAVAppInfo cmdlet (more info about it here ). Here I’ve…
