Getting not-out-of-the-box information with the out-of-the-box web client

A few days ago, I saw this tweet: And that reminded me about a question I had a few weeks ago from my consultants on how to get more object-formation from the Web Client.  More in detail: in Belgium, we have 2 languages for a tiny country (NLB, FRB) that differ from the language used …

Multi Root Workspaces in VSCode for AL Development – Episode 2

Remember my blog post on “Multi-root workspaces in VSCode for AL Development“?  If not – it might be interesting to read first, because this is in fact an “extension” (get it?) on it .. so you might say this blogpost “depends” on that one ;-). I concluded the post with some scripts – and that’s …

Dependency Analysis Tool (ALDependencyAnalysis)

Remember this post?  Probably not.  Nearly a year ago at Directions US, I showed some “how did I do stuff” during a number of sessions.  And it ended with a lot of feedback, which came down to: “can I have it”?  So, that’s where I wrote a post “I have work to do” ;-). The …

How to REALLY rename all AL-files of your Business Central app..

You remember this post?  I tried to warn you that when v16 comes out, there will be a new code rule that will check your filenames – and you’ll have to (if you don’t disable it) comply with the file name convention of Microsoft.  If you don’t automate your file naming, then you’re in for …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2020 Wave 1 is released!

Indeed – I didn’t see any official statement yet – but it’s obvious, v16 is the current latest MS release .. and if you don’t believe me – just check Docker (the latest “current” release is already v16 – docker image “mcr.microsoft.com/businesscentral/onprem”)… I’m not going to bore you with what is already online – I …

New Command in My CRS AL Language Extension: Search Object Names

Recently, I came across this post by Jack Mallender.  An interesting idea on how to efficiently find AL Objects among your files. It basically comes down to using regex in combination with the global search functionality in VSCode, like (yep, I’m stealing this from Jack’s post – sorry, Jack ;-)): It immediately convinced me that …

DevOps Build Agents for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

You probably know about the twitter hashtag “bcalhelp” .. A way for you to ask help on twitter about anything AL for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Multi-root Workspaces in VSCode for AL Development

You might have figured – I’m a VSCode fanboy.  One of many.  You might remember the session I did on NAVTechDays 2017 (Rock ‘n Roll with VSCode), where I dove quite a bit into the possibilities this great tool comes with.  But I didn’t talk about the concept of “Multi-root Workspaces”: an ability of VSCode …
