When developing an extension for Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC), one of the hardest problems is detecting which event to subscribe. To detect the event, there are two options: Go To Definition in AL code, and the Event Recorder feature. This blog discusses how to use the Event Recorder feature.
The Event Recorder is a feature that allows all the events to be listed when a certain action is performed in BC.

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.

A while ago I wrote about our Extension Design Principles. In it I discussed various ways to interface between extensions without having to take dependencies. One of these interface methods was the workflows Business Central is equipped with.
Because you can configure these workflows at run-time you can configure Workflow Events and responses from different extensions.

Working with extensions, I face the same problems as everybody else. I feel that I’m limited in my work, not knowing what the other extensions are doing.
A year ago, I released the Extension Details that can help developers identify which object numbers and fields have been used by other developers.
Over the last year I have continued to develop the extension details solution to help me, and maybe it can help others too.
