Preview of Development Tools for Dynamics NAV

Microsoft has deiced to give an early Christmas gifts to the world by introducing new tools to build extensions and apps in and for Dynamics NAV

Tool comes in two flavors and both are available in preview from today (21/12/2016).

The in-client designer
Before talking about it, just have a look at the below gif. I’m sure most of you will love the idea. No need to go back to developers to add a new field to a page. It is all can be done in the client window itself. 

This will allows to drag and drop interface, rearrange fields, rename-groups and reposition element to build perfect extension to support an industry-specific solution or implement a business process optimization.

Visual Studio Code

Use the AL Extension for NAV in Visual Studio Code to build powerful extensions based on tables, pages, and codeunits using the new objects: Page Extensions and Table Extensions.
