Microsoft Dynamics NAV Managed Service Goodies

Over the course of creating my videos, I have created a number of demos, and massive amount of code (well, massive in relation to the duration of videos). So, with Microsoft’s agreement, I have published all of the demonstrated C# and PowerShell code to my GitHub repository.

If you haven’t watched the videos yet, then please do.

When I blogged about deploying resource files automatically during development some months ago, I showed how you could use PowerShell during build process in Visual Studio to invoke a codeunit that registers control add-ins. Now, in NAV 2016, these tasks are a lot simpler with these new cmdlets.

Deploy your resource automatically from Visual Studio

In most of my JavaScript client extensibility demos, I develop the whole content of my resource ZIP files inside Visual Studio. When I press F6, magically my NAV gets updated with the latest version of JavaScript that I just wrote. So, how do I do that?

Here’s the cookbook.
