One of the most frequently asked questions is how to get started programming Microsoft Dynamics NAV. MVP Luc van Vugt has made a video about just that. First part together with long time DUG member David Studebaker.
The next episodes:
The foundation of any system is the data structure definition. In NAV, the building blocks of this foundation are the Tables. A NAV table includes much more than just the data fields and keys. A NAV table definition also includes data validation rules, processing rules, business rules, and logic to ensure referential integrity. In this session, we will discuss the structure and creation of tables.
The design of an application should begin at the simplest level, with the design of the data elements. The type of data your development tool supports has a significant effect on our design. Since NAV is designed for financially oriented business applications, NAV data types are financial and business oriented. In this session, we will cover many of the data types that we use within NAV. For each data type, we will cover some of the more frequently modified field properties and how particular properties are used to support application functionality.
Pages are NAV’s object type for interactively presenting information. The page rendering routines that paint the page on the target display handle much of the data presentation detail. This allows a variety of clients to be created by Microsoft, such as Web browser resident clients, Windows clients, and new tablet clients (iPad, Android, Windows). In this session, we will discuss the various types of pages offered by NAV, and the options for formatting, data accessing, and tailoring the pages.
