There are many data types that are used in the AL programming language, used to modify code in Dynamics Business Central On Premises. This blog explains how to use the Dictionary, RecordID, RecordRef, and BigText data types.
Now that Microsoft decided not to include C/Side with Business Central knowing how to develop in AL language and how to quickly transfer your solution from C/AL to AL is crucial. In this article, we will talk about how to use Microsoft’s TXT2AL tool to convert your C/Side solution to AL language.
When developing in AL creating permission sets isn’t the must fun thing to do…. I thought it must be possible to find a better tool than editing the xml file manually and found some inspiration here. Based on that I created this excel sheet that you can use to create a permission set xml file.
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.
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 there was still a way for us to browse the – in this case – the al-code. And even more – would we be able to use the VSCode navigationability (if that’s a word at all) to navigate our code (like “go to definition” and “find references”)?
