Latest capabilities of Copilot in Visual Studio
Stas Yakhnenko comments on the latest Copilot capabilities in Visual Studio: “I’ve just seen a really impressive demo of the new Copilot in VisualStudio. And it feels crazy. Considering what we have now, I’m curious about what are the development and programming gonna look like in 5 years?” Be sure to watch the video demonstration.
Developer Tip of the Day: Objects and which app?
For all of my customers, I like to add a Page Extension to All Objects With Caption (Page 9174) that will show which installed App owns each object. Before BC22, I would use the special table “Published App” to fetch the name of each app by App ID, but BC22 wants to make that table unusable. Microsoft provided a new variable type to solve this problem called ModuleInfo.
NavApp.GetModuleInfo(Rec.”App Package ID”, Module);
AppName := Module.Name;
New feature in BC: Opening balances for item tracked inventory
Mohana released a new video showing a new feature in Business Central 2023, Release Wave 1 that makes it easier to create opening balances for item tracked inventory. This new feature lets you enable specific batches on the Item Journal page where you can enter serial, lot, and package data directly on journal lines.
That’s when we were REAL programmers!
Kyle Hardin posted a link to github where you can download a local copy of the Apollo 11 source code that ran the main spacecraft computer for the command and lunar modules.
