However, when building control add-ins, it’s not only about what we build, but also about how we build it. That was the central tenet of my NAV TechDays 2019 session named “Control Add-in Development Supercharged”, in which I wanted to show how control add-in development can be indistinguishable from modern web front end development. Because that’s exactly what it is – web front end development.
For my session I’ve prepared total of 36 demos. However, I realized just before the session that I won’t be able to deliver all of them, while also delivering all the theory I wanted to present. So I decided to post all of the demo source code for all 36 demos. However, this year I wanted to take a step further: I wanted to not only deliver the code as-is without any explanations, I actually wanted to explain all of it.
And this is what this blog series will be about – how to supercharge the control add-in development and make it as modern as it can possibly get. All with code examples and explanations. In the end, you’ll get a nice tutorial of modern control add-in development, that I hope will help you build your skills and take your control add-in development to the next level.
All code examples and explanations will be in in GitHub, and the first example is already there.
So, head to https://github.com/vjekob/supercharged_01 and check out the first example.
I won’t be posting code explanations here on my blog, I’ll merely be posting about the latest contribution to my GitHub repositories, and will add a line or two to explain what a particular repo or branch are about.
So, today: repository supercharged_01, branch master.
This branch introduces the “Simpler” control add-in and sets the stage for all further demos. It contains a very simple AL extension that contains a control add-in. The control add-in does not provide a feature-complete functionality, but merely showcases how it could be possible to simplify an otherwise less user-friend process. Keep in mind that the control add-in itself does not matter. What matters is its structure and how it was created.
Stay tuned for (far) more content over the following days and weeks – it takes time to explain 36 demos in detail.
