In this edition of Developer Digest, we learn the definition of a VS Code Workspace, how to extract event logs from Docker using PowerShell, and the importance of keeping code ready for future releases.
The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.
As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media...so everyone can benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV/BC experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.
Freddy K shares that there are two types of apps for Business Central: AppSource Apps and Per Tenant Extensions (PTE). Learn how to publish apps to a Business Central online environment using BcContainerHelper.
Suresh shares this article about Visual Studio Code workspaces, a collection of one or more folders opened in a VS Code instance. Learn more about the concept of these workspaces and how to use them.
Kyles gives us another helpful “Developer Tip of the Day: You can extract the event log of a Docker container with the PowerShell command, Get-NavContainerEventLog.”
Tom H adds: “It comes in handy when you're trying to troubleshoot issues with report layouts. If there is an error in an RDLC layout, it doesn't print; it just blows up without giving you an on-screen message. Fortunately, it does leave some entries in the event log to work with.”
Suresh offers this option: “I use the commands found in this blog to view Event Log from a Docker container.”
Price calculations have changed in recent releases of Business Central. Every developer should be aware of these pervasive changes to ensure their code is ready for future releases and to be prepared when it is time to upgrade.
