In addition to Visual Studio code, developers can also use the Designer to test and adjust visual content on page objects in Business Central.
The Designer can be started using the “Publish and open the Designer” command (Shortcut F6) by Visual Studio Code. For example, actions, quick entry fields, list views, the field importance and the navigation bar can be graphically adjusted in the Web Client.
In the latest Business Central version, dependencies to all deployed extensions are not added automatically any longer. At the end of the Designer session, all extensions without dependency are now silently removed. These visual changes can then be reimported into Visual Studio Code using the command “Download source code” (Shortcut F7).
Dynamics 365 Business Central offers different possibilities to customize the workplace and optimize it for personal requirements.
Every user has different work routines when using Business Central and prefers a different handling and navigation. To make working with the solution for everyone as easy, convenient and productive as possible, Dynamics 365 Business Central includes several customization options. With the recently released April version, the possibilities have been enhanced.
Optimized action bar
Among other things, it is now possible to adjust the layout of the action bar on each list, worksheet, card or document page and thus fit it to the tasks, roles or departments that are relevant for the respective user. For example, unimportant actions or groups can be moved, hidden or re-ordered.
Microsoft just launched the April ’19 versions of its business solutions – including Dynamics 365 Business Central.
In addition to some previously announced new features that make working with the software easier and more productive, the April release also includes an optimization of performance, stability and security. Furthermore, Microsoft is concentrating on the development, cloud and update capability of the ERP system in the new version. The possibility of designing the user interface in the Web Client has been expanded as well as the functionality in the new development environment Visual Studio Code.
No more Windows Client in autumn
With the upcoming October version, the classic development environment (C/SIDE) and the Windows Client will finally be completely abolished – the April ’19 version will thus be the last release with the classic development environment and the Windows Client.
