AL with VSCode: Symbol Rename

When you’re a NAV developer, you’re not really spoiled with developer tools. So these are exciting times .. and I think I can speak for many developers when claiming I’m very much looking forward to the upcoming developer tools.

Enable GIT on your NAV Developer Preview

When doing sessions about VSCode – one of the main advantages people always talk about (in comparison with our classic C/AL development environment (aka C/SIDE)), is “GIT Integration”. Or “Source Control Management right out-of-the-box”. I would even say that it’s difficult to work with VSCode without actually controlling your software. Out-of-the-box GIT Support VS Code …

PowerShots 2017 just kicked off

I’m sitting in the plane, after I just kicked off my first PowerShot for NAV2017 in Sweden. It was not “the first” PowerShot of this year, because Vjeko actually started one day before me in Norway :-). What are PowerShots? You might have read from previous years that we (Cloud Ready Software) have been “touring” …

Stored Procedures on a NAV database?

Recently, I came across a customer, where a partner had implemented some Stored Procedures on a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 database. Now, for any change on SQL level that comes to my ears, my first reaction is always “Nooooooooo“. Or as a pictures tells more than a thousand words: First thing I did was googling …

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Source Code Analysis – Triggers & Procedures

On my last blogpost on Source Code Analysis (which focused on the LineCount), I got the remark whether it would be interesting to drill into “statements”. I didn’t really know what he meant with it – but it made me think and drill down into the usage of the procedures. You might remember we talked …

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Source Code Analysis – LineCount

Recently, I came across this nice graph: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/million-lines-of-code/ . Pretty cool to see the comparison. But – obviously – the next question for us Microsoft Dynamics NAV developers is: How many lines of code does Microsoft Dynamics NAV contain? Good question .. and an interesting one. I always told people things like “it’s not easy …

Manage Web Services in Extensions

At this moment, I’m working on an Extension for Dynamics 365. One of the requirements is basically “publish an interface to an external packet”. In other words: “publish a bunch of web services”. Now, I’m always trying to find the “best practice” for different circumstances. That’s also why I’m so deep into PowerShell – I …

Make the New Developer Tools available on a local machine

On Twitter, Mark Brummel was wondering on how we would be able to get this wonderful new DEV environment locally, to be able to play with whenever we don’t have an Internet Connection. Well .. by coincidence, I had been trying to wrap my head around that a few weeks ago .. but never wrote …
