The “SystemId” in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2019 release Wave 2

I’m returning after a very interesting workshop on DevOps in Berlin .. . At this moment, I’m wasting my time in the very “attractive” TXL airport because of my delayed flight. And how can I better waste my time than to figure out some stuff regarding Business Central. Figuring out indeed, because I have barely …

AL BaseApp Customization: “because you can doesn’t mean you should”

Sometimes I get the remark that I’m not sceptical enough, but mostly too positive towards whatever Microsoft does … well – I have been very happy with the product, the progress, the evolution and the revolution. For all of you with that opinion about me – let me make you happy.  You might have figured …

AL Extension Pack for VSCode

I totally forgot to blog about this – so let me quickly catch up with this one.. :-). Some time ago, after explaining my most used VSCode Extensions for AL Development for (about) the 829th time – I decided to make my life a bit easier. I already came across the concept of creating a …

CRS AL Language Extension – ControlNames are no longer surrounded by double quotes

There is a recent change that I had to introduce in the CRS AL Language Extension – you know, that tiny little VSCode Extension that quite a lot of you seem to be using ;-). +89000 downloads/+21500 installs – that’s crazy! It’s one of my biggest projects I ever did for the community :-). Stop …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Spring update changed “some” field lengths

For long, we (as a partner community) have been asking for longer field lengths. And this time, Microsoft seems to have delivered: about 860 field lengths were changed. Mostly from Text50 to Text100, but also from Text30 to Text50 and so on. For your convenience, I created a csv on my “CALAnalysis”-repo on github that …

“In the future, on-premises will follow the cloud rules”

My intentional plan was to share a small blog about the Fall release of Business Central. Well – it turned out I had more to say than I imagined beforehand ;-). I would like to focus on one point, where I’m not going to make myself really popular, as I notice quite a lot that …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central – 2019 Spring Release

I’m not attending Directions ASIA this year – and it doesn’t really feel good. There is a major release around the corner, and I have to experience it through social media – I hate it! But that’s life – my wife is going live with a huge project, so I had some duties at home …

CRS AL Language Extension – version 1.1.0

My last blog about my VSCode extension dates from July 2018. I have been upgrading/maintaining it meanwhile, and I am definitely not going to blog about all new small features and fixes (yes, quite necessary as well ;-)) every single time, but for this one, I really felt that an update wouldn’t hurt. What is …

Business Central as an app: getting to the al source code

This blog is actually not valid anymore.  There is an official way to easily get to the al source code.  You can find more info here. You must have heard the latest news: Microosft released the first devpreview (on docker) where Business Central is an app, and there is close to no C/AL anymore. Either …
