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 …

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).

CRS Al Language Extension

I have been wanting to write this blog for a while. But I’m going to keep it a short one, as I’d like to go into a few topics separately, and I don’t want to swallow too much in one big blogpost with the possibility with some (important?) details would get lost. Thing is – …

Since my last blog about the new Code Analysis for Al development, I have been wondering what rules Microsoft actually applies in which Code Analyzer.

Enable the updated Code Analysis for AL

Some time ago, I wrote a blogpost on how to enable code analysis for AL development. At that point, it was an undocumented feature – not to say, it was an unfinished feature that you could already enable.

Enable Code Analysis for AL

It’s the week of “undocumented features”, apparently. Today: code analysis. Apparently, the al-language extension comes with a built-in analysis for your al-code. Thing is: it’s disabled by default. Just go to settings (File/Preferences/Settings) and enabled it. By adding the line to your settings.json of your environment (the right pane). Here is my settings.json-file: You will …

Autonumber Objects in AL

I recently discovered what appears to be an undocumented feature in the current version of the al language extension (aka, the “Modern Dev”, aka DynDev365, aka ExtensionV2, aka VSCode Development Tools for Microsoft Dynamics NAV). And that is “Automatic Object Numbering” On any objecttype, when enforcing intellisense, you get the lowest available number that was …
