  • Welcome to the Dynamics blog-o-sphere! #1

    On this day 1 Year minus 1 day since I started blogging I am glad to introduce you to this new star in the Dynamics blog-o-sphere: Microsoft Dynamics NAV Thoughts by Arend-Jan Kauffmann. It's good to know that apparently, as he writes himself, Mark and me did get him this far. And hope he will stay there. [8-|] Well the start is promising adding a valuable extension to Waldo's solution to print RDL reports from the Classic Client. Keep it rolling, AJ!

  • OnLookup & OnValidate #2

    Although you might be aware now that any code in the OnLookup trigger will leave you as a developer to handle everything yourself, you have made the choice to write your own lookup functionality. As mentioned in my previous post OnLookup & OnValidate #1 , you not only need to program the look up itself but also have to take care that the selected value is handed over to the field from where the user will perform the lookup, including its validation . Well ... except in the case of programming your…

    Just a blog post for completeness sake, a sequel in my collection of How-to: Search ... . Any classic client list window that does not facilitate the common Find dialog (i.e. system windows) displays similar behavior as I presented in two of my previous posts: How-to: Search a Field in Table Designer How-to: Search in C/AL Globals and Locals The general pattern could be described as following: Select a cell in the column you want to search through (whatever column!)

  • How-to: Zoom into Background Data on RTC

    I guess for all of us NAV pros Ctrl+F8 is one of those tools in our daily work that can be reckoned indispensable. Confronted with a record containing some mysterious data how often by default do we press this magic key combination to have a look at what's behind. About This Page Only late in the development of the NAV 2009 this feature was also added to RTC: About This Page . How happy we testers were to be able to zoom into the background data .

In your RTC shortcut set target to: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\RoleTailored Client\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe" /? The first was obvious to me, the…
