I wrote in the past some articles about how it’s important to use Azure Storage for storing files in a Dynamics 365 Business Central project (avoid using blobs and media as much as possible) and I’ve talked about the differences between Azure Blob Storage and Azure File Share, also providing a solution for mapping an Azure File Share as a local drive for data exchange with Dynamics 365 Business Central (link here).
Today I’d like to talk briefly about whether or not we have access to the standard internal table/field (Access Property = internal) via AL.
Access modifiers are used to set accessibility of tables, table fields, codeunits, and queries, etc which controls whether the object can be used from other code in your module or other modules.
Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 Wave 2 release (version 23) will introduce the possibility to add any existing table field to a page via page customization (by users for their pages or by admins for a specific profile). This feature will be launched in the October release and listed as a “preview”.
Yesterday I saw an interesting question on the D365 forum, how to use field name to find field id. More details: finding the id of a field using the field name only by using the recref and fieldref
So, in this post, I would like to talk about how to get the id, type, length and value of a field by its text name (field name).
