User and Workspace Settings in Visual Studio Code

I hope you already started working with Visual studio code.

In this section we will see how to do setting for User and workspace in Visual Studio code environment.

It is easy to configure visual studio code as per your likings using various settings. You can change VS code editor ,user interface and functioning by using this settings

There are three ways you can open user and workspace settings

  1. To access you can go to  Click on File–>Preferences–>Settings

User1user2

2) Using Command Palette(Ctrl+Shift+P)  by typing

Preferences: Open User Settings  or Preferences : Open Workspace Settings

user3

3) Use keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+,)

This provides two different settings

  • User Settings – Settings that apply globally to any instance of VS Code you open.
  • Workspace Settings – Settings stored inside your workspace and only apply when the workspace is opened.

Workspace settings override user settings.

How to create user settings 

Once you open settings then you can modify settings as below

Example. If I want to change font size in editor then I can do it from here

 

Change the font size and see the effect on editor.

user6

It shows the effect immediately after saving the file.

Same kind of settings you can do it for AL language extension management

Hope this will help you while extension development

You will find .vsix file in NAV 2018 Media file in folder ..\NAV.11.0.22292.W1.DVD\ModernDev\program files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\110\Modern Development Environment\ALLanguage.Vsix

This will install AL language in visual studio code
