Multi-line text search in VSCode (with RegEx)

Small post – just because I needed it recently – and it made me think of this little gem that I still had to share: what if you have to search over multiple lines in multiple files in VSCode .. something that actually might happen more than you want to admit. I actually never knew …

Documenting your Business Central (custom) APIs with OpenAPI / Swagger

For reasons that are not too important, I am trying to find a way to “describe my custom APIs”. You know. You’re at a project, you had to implement an integration with a 3rd party application, and you develop some custom APIs for it. When done, you have to communicate this to the 3rd party …

A somewhat easier way to generate a DGML Dependency Graph of your Business Central extensions

You might have read my post “Visualize app.json dependencies in VSCode (using GraphViz)” where I explained “another” way to generate a dependency graph. Another than what? Well – other than the DGML that was just announced on Microsoft’s Launch Event of Business Central 2020 Wave 2 as being “on the drawing board”. Well – today …

Business Central Development Life Hacks

I haven’t exactly blogged much lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been active for or in the community. You might have seen my previous blogpost for example, where I explored the wonders of streaming (which is for a near future to pick up, by the way ;-)), I also have contributed a few sessions …

Publish & Run Current Object from VSCode – with a single command

I’m not writing a blog about every single (new) command in my “CRS AL Language Extension”. But this Sunday, I added an interesting one. One that I should have had created for a long time – but simply didn’t think of it, until Daniel (TheDenster.com) explicitly asked for it on GitHub. Just imagine, you’re building …

Model Driven software development for Business Central with “mdAL”

You might already have seen my session on DynamicsCon about Design Patterns. During that session, I mentioned a tool “mdAL”. If not .. well, here it is (starting at the mdAL part): This tool has seen some major updates – time to blog about it. ;-). Disclaimer I am not the developer of this tool …

Download all Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Source Code with PowerShell

You might wonder: why would I need this? Why would I need to download source code of Business Central, while I can simply access it through the symbols when I’m working in VSCode – or even better, while I can simply click the symbol, and look at the code from there? Well … Searchability Didn’t …

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 …

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 …
