When CU2 was released, I totaly forgot to test something I should have.
Based on my “what the BEEP” post my friends at Microsoft decided that it was time to “clean up” and gave me a heads up.
If you type “BE” in NAV2016CU2 the keyword you get is BEGIN, not BEEP.
THANK YOU TEAM!
From what I have been told the obsolete commands are hardcoded. If you find anything that should be removed, just reply to this blog. Microsoft folks read it :). (Trust me I know).
As far as I could test I could not find the BEEP in the Symbol menu either, but I might have looked in the wrong place.
Another quickie about the editor. Also from NAVTechDays.
If you select a block of code with Shift+Alt you can make a change to all lines at the same time.
With the release of NAV2016, more new features have been added than ever before. This raises a challenge that we have not had in a while. Translations.
My NAV Skills partner in crime, Luc van Vugt event has a blog tag about this.
This is a quickie.
At NAVTechDays I was pretty sure to have seen a cool feature in the new editor, but at home I could not find it.
I had seen a preview window of the code when hovering over the collapsed function.
Many years ago, when the Windows Client was till called the Role Tailored Client and was freshly released I blogged about how cues are handled in the menu.
One question that is raised a lot lately is how events and hooks are compared and when to use events and when to use hooks.
The answer to this question is very simple if you are not on NAV2016, as one of my Partner Ready Software friends said at NAVTechDays: you can only use hooks.
If there was a Pattern of the year award, last year the Arguments table would have won. The year before the Hook pattern. Or maybe that was the year before.
This year in my opinion it is the Handled pattern by Thomas Hejlsberg in combination with Events. It is not yet published by Microsoft on the wiki, but let me try to explain how it works and why I like it.
