A Tip from the old box – installing a localized Navision version on an English SBS Server

Recently I have been implemented a Danish version of Dynamics Navision 2009 SP1 on an English SBS server and there I meet an old “friend”.

The old “friend” was a problem with the Danish letter Ø. The letter was displayed as Ȼ which is not the right sign (actually the data was also corrupt :-( ). At first side everything looked fine in the regional settings and the language was set to Danish – but then I looked on the Advance page and voilá there we had the answer. Code Page 850 was not selected.

Hey… where are my menu items?

Today I had a funny error – my menu items in the navigation pane did disappear if I made shortcuts to them.

Therefore I did some testing and here is what a figured out:

  1. Open a fresh client

  3. Check shortcuts – they were created fine

RoleTailored Client – Where is the Default Page?

Have you also been wondering about which page are the default page, where to set it up and what to do if a user should have a different page.

Well… it is actually pretty easy :-)
 

1) What is the default page? The default page is usually page 9006 “Order Processor Role Center”.

So how did I find it out? Well I think like a developer – so why use forms, when you can go straight into tables ;-) Read more »

NAV 2009 SP1 – Using the RSS reader Add-In

In the previous article we created a RSS reader Add-In, now let us take a look on how to use it from navision (RoleTailored Client).

First we must make it possible for navision to see it. This is done by adding the dll’s information to the table 2000000069 Client Add-in.

Before we are doing this we need to be sure that the dll is in the add-ins folder and we need to know the public key for the dll.

Okay – first locate the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\RoleTailored Client\Add-ins and make sure the file naviRss.dll is located there.

RSS Reader Add-In for the RoleTailored Client

Add-Ins are used to add new features to the RoleTailored Client and was introduced with NAV 2009 SP1.

I have previous written about a ASP.NET RSS reader – in that article, the collection of feeds was a C# function, so why not use this function to extend the RoleTailored Client.

I will be using Visual Studio 2008 to write a Dynamic Link Library (dll), but you can also use the free Express version of Visual C#.

Let’s start by creating a new project – a class library. I have chosen to call it naviRSS.

NAV 2009 SP1 – Testing Codeunits – Part 2

In the earlier article, we where using the ConfirmHandler – but confirm is not everything a function can contain. So why not add the handling of Message Boxes ;-)

First, let us a add simple test message function to the previous created “doTest” codeunit. The function could look this:

 cside |  copy code |? 
PROCEDURE TestMessage@1112800001(useWrong@1112800000 : Boolean) : Boolean;
BEGIN
  IF useWrong THEN
    MESSAGE('Wrong Message')
  ELSE
    MESSAGE('Test Ok');
  EXIT(TRUE);
END;
