Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is released @ Directions NA – waldo’s blog

Your first reaction is probably – duh, I know! Well – I’m late, that’s true. At Directions North America, Microsoft announced the availability of the new version of Business Central – and I didn’t spend one single post on it. Until now. Reason is simple – I was quite busy at the conference, and I didn’t want to lose too much time on writing. I need to… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Directions US – San Diego – waldo’s blog

When I write this, I’m on the plane to Frankfurt. No, that’s not where Directions US will take place – I will get my connecting flight to San Diego from there. And San Diego IS the place to be for the next week! Why? Because we live in exciting times when it comes to Microsoft Dynamics NAV! Yes, I still call it NAV – because at this very point, it’s one of… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Business Central W1 Docker image with data – waldo’s blog

You probably know this. I just write this post because I didn’t up until today. I’m using Docker quite regularly (well, if you find “pulling an image twice a day” is regular) .. and I have been using mostly these two repositories according my needs (for more info, look here): “bcinsider.azurecr.io/bcsandbox-master” for the very latest version (the future… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Export C/AL objects as AL from a database on a docker container on a remote host – waldo’s blog

That’s a mouthful, isn’t it :-)? As you might have figured in quite some sessions, threads and posts, I’m quite fond running docker images on a remote Hyper-V on my laptop. From the moment it was described by Arend Jan, I’m using it. In my opinion, it’s a much better way to run, because Windows Server is so much better in memory management as Windows 10 is… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Inconsistent language behaviour in the windows client – waldo’s blog

The strangest thing happened to us recently – one that really blew my mind. I’m going to spare you the long road of trial & error we went through to come up with the answer – or at least an explanation of what cause the behaviour. The behaviour Because “a picture tells more than a 1000 words” .. let me just show you. In the below images, you see the language… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

List all NAV Docker Image Tags on Docker Hub – waldo’s blog

Some time ago, I created this script because I wanted to know all the available tags on dockerhub for the “microsoft/dynamics-nav” repository on Docker. Why? I don’t know anymore :-). But it was clear that the “tags” section on DockerHub only showed us a very small part of the available tags. Yesterday, we were wondering why a specific version (one that we… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Developing Business Central Extensions/Apps in Team – waldo’s blog

I picked up a new challenge these days: for one of our (quite big) customers, we need to develop a solution, based on extensions. In short: ready for the future, easy to upgrade. When I would explain the case in a paragraph, you’d say “this is not NAV”, although when you would really look deep into it, it’s ideal for an Extension-scenario, obviously in… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

CRS AL Language Extension – File Management – waldo’s blog

Time for the next round of functionality I added in my VSCode Extension (the CRS AL Language Extension) – a functionality that manages your filenames (and pre/suffix). Hold your horses – this is going to be a long one ;-). You don’t want to know how many hours I spent on this functionality – many points of feedback from the community, and even some… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

AL Code Analysis Rules (Diagnostic Descriptors) – Updated – waldo’s blog

  You might remember my post about the Code Analyzers Diagnostic Descriptors when it first came out. I’m very happy with this tool, as it avoids many mistakes, and it enforces some level of clean coding – which is never a bad thing ;-). Recently, the June update of the AL Language Extension was announced. I was sitting at a swimming pool in Bangkok – so what do… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Are you “Ready To Go”? – waldo’s blog

Lately I have been involved in a program from Microsoft that I personally think is really useful. That useful that I’m spending my only spare time at a pool (and not in it) in Bangkok to tell you about it. The Ready To Go Program If you are a partner for Dynamics NAV, you must have heard about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central by now. Whether you like it or… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Today: the “Running Objects” functionality This was the first major feature that I tried to add. Namely, being able to run an… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Function Overloading in AL – waldo’s blog

I haven’t been blogging much, lately. But in my defence – I put quite some time in another community project, which I blogged about in my previous post (and will blog about in quite a few coming posts…). To keep up the pace of writing at least one post each month (which I have been able to do so for the past 11 years or so) – I HAD to put something up urgently… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

But I’m going to keep it a short one, as I’d like to go into a few topics separately, and I don’t want to swallow too much in one big blogpost with the possibility with some (important?) details would get lost. Thing is – I wrote an Extension. And I’m not talking about an Extension for Business Central in… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Question. Have you heard about something called “Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central”? If not, you must have been sleeping. Because it has been all over.  And it’s going to be released today!

Enable the updated Code Analysis for AL – waldo’s blog

Some time ago, I wrote a blogpost on how to enable code analysis for AL development. At that point, it was an undocumented feature – not to say, it was an unfinished feature that you could already enable. Since the developer preview March update, it is officially here, and things have somewhat changed – no, not changed, improved! :-). So, quite necessary to do an… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Since a recent update of VSCode, you might have noticed that IntelliSense works somewhat different. Well, that’s because VSCode thought to do a good, useful update for you .. but apparently for AL development, it turns out to be quite contra productive..

My last blogpost was merely an announcement of Microsoft’s announcement about Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. We are a 24 hours later now, so let’s share some more information about this new release of NAV-In-The-Cloud. I assembled this myself, from blogs, documents, slides, talks and mails – so there is a disclaimer for sure 🙂 (below the mail). The… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...

Disclaimer: this blog is mostly a repeat of what was in Microsoft’s blog .. I just try to spread the word 😉 Sometimes I get the question: “Is Microsoft Dynamics NAV GDPR compliant”. I’m not a GDPR specialist, and don’t want to act like it. But … This week, Microsoft blogged about GDPR. And it’s clear you need to ask yourself another question: How can… Continue Reading waldo’s Article on their...
