Recently there was this question about how to do version numbering when working with AL Apps and automatic builds: It started a discussion about when to update which part of the version number and how that is done. The discussion will be continued today (10th June 2021 9pm CEST) on Discord if you are interestedContinue reading “Validate a commit before it is committed”
A few days ago I streamed how I try to upgrade a Business Central CRONOS Database just using docker: Apart from a few throwbacks it went quite well, but better watch yourself 😉 However, I promised to publish the script I created so you don’t need to write it down from the video. $ContainerNameOld =Continue reading “Upgrade a BC CRONUS Database using Docker”
So I came across this post from ThatNavGuy: Looping Through Enum – That NAV guy (wordpress.com) He shows an example on how to loop over an enum. The goal is to have the enum pointing to the next value on each iteration. Since this community is about sharing knowledge and learning from each other, IContinue reading “Code review: Loop over an Enum”

I just joined the hype train and started to record AL learning videos! Yes, I know what you might think now. “Again? There are already enough people doing the same videos over and over again!” But I have something different in mind. In this series of videos I want to share and show how IContinue reading “Video series: How do I?”
Did you ever wonder what was changed in a cumulative update in Business Central? Sure, you can read the update notes from Microsoft and read the list of bug fixes they made. But I mean like, really know what was changed. Like, which line was changed on the customer table from between 2 versions?
I may introduce you to the “Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.WebPageViewer”. This is an awesome small controladdin shipped by microsoft. You can not only embed webpages in Buisness Central but you can also pass your own html!
Recently I posted a “Did you know that …” post on Twitter showing an alternative way to write an if-condition. Today I thought: Hey, I might have some more examples for different ways to write conditions and here we are 😉 First start with the most simple if statement there is: It just checks ifContinue reading “Condition basics in AL”
Today in coding for performance, we talk a bit about FindSet and FindFirst. I actually had plans to make this one the first post in this series. But it turned out that the differences between this two commands are not as obvious as I first thought. Let me first place a huge disclaimer here: EverythingContinue reading “Coding4Performance 5: FindSet vs FindFirst”
