Three years ago I was doing a presentation about something or other about NAV at a non-NAV conference. That’s in front of normal developers. And you can imagine what their impression was of the state of the technology when, in front of a couple of hundred mostly C# developer, I opened the C/AL editor.
I don’t need to be concerned about that anymore, because Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 comes with a new code editor, which comes with a number of features the whole NAV community way hoping for since I remember. And I started forgetting a long time ago.
Namely, we now have:
- Proper syntax highlighting
- Line numbers
- Change indicators
- Auto-complete intellisense style. Ish.
- Syntax tooltips
- And – hold your seats! – undo!
