In this video, I look at how to compare different data types in AL. I also discovered an obscure, but interesting difference between AL and C/AL, read more below the video.
In the upcoming version of Business Central there is one interesting feature for AL developers – Returning complex types
At last, on the customers question “How difficult is that?” you can answer “It’s just one line of code” Image
At the same time when customer will ask “Hey, why so expensive? You told it’s just one line of code!” – you can argue “Yes, but it’s very difficult line of code”
I think that every AL developer dreams that a day AL will be a full Object Oriented programming language like C# or others. Unfortunately, AL is born from C/AL and its main purpose is to write business logic inside a business application like an ERP in the cloud, it’s not a language that will be used for writing every type of apps. But that is… don’t stop to suggest things, don’t stop to propose ideas, something is cooking…
