Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is released @ Directions NA

Your first reaction is probably – duh, I know! Well – I’m late, that’s true. At Directions North America, Microsoft announced the availability of the new version of Business Central – and I didn’t spend one single post on it. Until now. Reason is simple – I was quite busy at the conference, and I …

Directions US – San Diego

When I write this, I’m on the plane to Frankfurt. No, that’s not where Directions US will take place – I will get my connecting flight to San Diego from there. And San Diego IS the place to be for the next week! Why? Because we live in exciting times when it comes to Microsoft …

AL Code Analysis Rules (Diagnostic Descriptors) – Updated Again

I have been blogging a few times about the Diagnostic Descriptors we get when enabling code analysis. Well – yet again, we have new ones. But I’m not going to keep updating these rulesets, as Microsoft is now doing that on docs. So let me give you one more overview, and the resources to the …

Business Central W1 Docker image with data

You probably know this. I just write this post because I didn’t up until today. I’m using Docker quite regularly (well, if you find “pulling an image twice a day” is regular) .. and I have been using mostly these two repositories according my needs (for more info, look here): “bcinsider.azurecr.io/bcsandbox-master” for the very latest …

Export C/AL objects as AL from a database on a docker container on a remote host

That’s a mouthful, isn’t it :-)? As you might have figured in quite some sessions, threads and posts, I’m quite fond running docker images on a remote Hyper-V on my laptop. From the moment it was described by Arend Jan, I’m using it. In my opinion, it’s a much better way to run, because Windows …

Inconsistent language behaviour in the windows client

The strangest thing happened to us recently – one that really blew my mind. I’m going to spare you the long road of trial & error we went through to come up with the answer – or at least an explanation of what cause the behaviour. The behaviour Because “a picture tells more than a …

List all NAV Docker Image Tags on Docker Hub

Some time ago, I created this script because I wanted to know all the available tags on dockerhub for the “microsoft/dynamics-nav” repository on Docker. Why? I don’t know anymore :-). But it was clear that the “tags” section on DockerHub only showed us a very small part of the available tags. Yesterday, we were wondering …

Developing Business Central Extensions/Apps in Team

I picked up a new challenge these days: for one of our (quite big) customers, we need to develop a solution, based on extensions. In short: ready for the future, easy to upgrade. When I would explain the case in a paragraph, you’d say “this is not NAV”, although when you would really look deep …

CRS AL Language Extension – File Management

Time for the next round of functionality I added in my VSCode Extension (the CRS AL Language Extension) – a functionality that manages your filenames (and pre/suffix). Hold your horses – this is going to be a long one ;-). You don’t want to know how many hours I spent on this functionality – many …

AL Code Analysis Rules (Diagnostic Descriptors) – Updated

  You might remember my post about the Code Analyzers Diagnostic Descriptors when it first came out. I’m very happy with this tool, as it avoids many mistakes, and it enforces some level of clean coding – which is never a bad thing ;-). Recently, the June update of the AL Language Extension was announced. …
