  • Blog Post: The Anomaly of the XMLport Request Page

    The user interface of the XMLport has always been somewhat of a black swan. On the classic platform it was absent and you had to work around it yourself. With the emerge of the windows client (RTC) we did get a request page as one of the incentives for us to start adopting the 3-tier technology. And...

  • Blog Post: Extend Go To Definition with Navigation History

    ... and enable back and forth browsing. I often find myself in the situation that I have been navigating through some C/AL code using the Go To Definition feature of which I recon each NAV developer is still very pleased since the introduction of it in NAV 2009 R2. For sure I a still am using it...

  • Blog Post: NAV ALM with Team Foundation Server | A Day in the Life of ...

    After our exploratory talk a couple of weeks ago, I was booked for yesterday by a Dutch NAV partner to help them out on their first steps 'into' TFS. Using Visual Studio Online we did setup a collection and a team project , drafted and implemented a branch structure and discussed the use of work...
  • Blog Post: NAV ALM with Team Foundation Server | Merge Strategy

    With my branch strategy post, I have provided you with a basis to design a source control structure to store your code in TFS. However, this is just half the story when it comes to how to keep the various branches in sync to the right extend. So here comes in the merge part of the strategy, i.e. the...
  • Blog Post: NAV ALM with Team Foundation Server | Branch Strategy

    So after my manifold "pledge" to go there and start today you might have been playing around with TFS. You did put your code there and started to update it with bug fixes and code enhancements. Great, but then you might have wondered: how does this all relate to the NAV production environment...

  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Online

    While me and my colleague Marcel were digging ourselves into NAV's cost calculation, Visual Studio 2013 was offically launched.

  • Blog Post: NAV ALM with Team Foundation Server - #3 | Welcome to the Dynamics blog-o-sphere

    Typically my blog-o-sphere "radar" has restricted sight - whatever that sight may be - as I hadn't registered the emerge of this one in November 2012. I only stumbled across it as we found out that we're "brother in arms" in the topic of NAV & TFS. Click on the image...

    Today, 21st of September. Summer behind, autumn upfront. My favourite season even though I detest leaving summer. But, you know, being born on the 4th of October ...

  • Blog Post: Some Compounds Statements - Part 2

    So where should compound statement be inserted in the samples I posted this week to get the code work right? Have a look below. But first ... ... code can work technically right when it compiles and doesn't throw any run-time error, which is a minimum of any code IMHO. For sure it's not...
  • Blog Post: Some Compounds Statements

    Have a look at these code samples and tell me where a compound statement , i.e. BEGIN-END, should be constructed to get the code work right. Just dare without going into NAV and verify. Sample 1 1. SalesCommentLine.SETRANGE("Document Type",SalesQHeader."Document Type"); 2...

    I guess Arend-Jan and I are going to play some kind of ping-pong over this. I should have been finished way before his post this afternoon!

    Being Dutch getting the opportunity to get a free copy, I willingly volunteered to Albert Augustine's call for reviewers on LinkedIn . And with me - note mostly none Dutch! - 20+ also did. That's one. Need I have more reasons? Well actually, yes. There are many books I would like to...
  • Blog Post: Validating Data #2: Using VALIDATE - c'tnd

    Some years ago I wrote a series on validating data in NAV. The second post in this row, called Validating Data #2: Using VALIDATE , addressed the use of the AL function VALIDATE. From recent experience I would like to update some part of this post as this seems missing in any documentation on VALIDATE...
  • Blog Post: How-to: Assign a Key Group to a Key - Your Help is Needed

    Recent work with a group of NAV pros had set my mind on writing a blog post on assigning a key group to a secondary key. Apparently, for most of them, key groups wasn't a known concept. However, some searching on the internet showed me enough straight forward posts, that clearly didn't need my...
  • Blog Post: Real F1 Online Help for Your Add-On?

    Each time I am involved in some way with a Dynamics NAV partner with respect to Help for their add-on, inevitably the issue of wanting to have their help on-line pops up.

    Now that MS is enforcing CfMD on partners more and more, we all are faced with the requirement to build a help system, that goes with your add-on, more and more.
