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

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 you might have gotten it from the blog from Microsoft, or Stefano’s blog, where he explained how to build an app for it. I wondered if …

CRS Al Language Extension – Running Objects

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 – …

NAV Developer Preview – September (Getting started)

Yesterday, we got a new Development Preview from Microsoft. You can read the announcement on their blog. This time, a lot has changed on how the image is constructed – basically meaning that my blogs on how to get your development environment on your local system are totally outdated ;-).

Create an offline Development Preview – enable the in-client visual designer

You might remember this post: http://www.waldo.be/2017/02/20/make-the-new-developer-tools-available-on-a-local-machine/ Well, back in those days, I might have forgotten a few bits ;-). Namely to enable the in-client visual designer. Well, there is not much to it – you can simply edit the web.config-file, and add the designer-attribute in it.. . With PowerShell, you can do it with: $NAVWebConfigFile …

NAV Developer Preview – Fix Script

When you want to experience the new developer tools, you need to set up a VM on Azure. Now, this takes a while. On top of that, it’s all “preview”. As in: “might crash”. And in: “if it crashes, there might not be a decent way out”. I was able to completely mess up my …
