How to record Events in Business Central

I know you all started working with AL development and extension. As you are converting your product or customization every time need to deal with base application code as during C/AL days you already added business logic in required codeunits,tables,pages etc.

Now when you are dealing with extension you need to move your customization to AL development using events subscription. It is always painful to find events associate with every business process and need to search right event to write customization did.

In business central there is feature available to see which events are executed during process you ran and one can record this events using event recorder .These events are not stored like permission set .This will disappear once you close the page.

We will see how we can use this . For recording you need to have two browser open in which one will do recording and other will execute business process.

  1. Search for Event recorder.


2. Click On Event recorder which will show as below


3. Click on Record Events–> Start


Go to another browser and start executing the required process . In this example I am creating one purchase order


Now go back first browser and click on record Events–>Stop


Once you click ‘Yes’ then it will display all events executed during purchase order creation.


Go to the last columns i.e. Get AL Snippets where you will get AL code for the events


This will really helpful while moving your program to AL from C/AL

Too Cool.

Stay tuned for more updates.



Business Central :Web Client Improvement

Really amazed by looking at web client of Business central and found one of the great change which was really required by my customer as it not look good when page get opens

And I am talking about the action functions available on subpage.

Till NAV 2018 it is showing directly on ribbon which is not looking good and if you have more subpages then it looks more weird.



Now if you see business central web client it will show in subpage and it exactly show where it should be with nice options.


There are so many things which changed like you can go previous and next transaction from same page .no need to close page and open another transactions for view/modify..

Kudos to MS team for this change.

Will come up with more .Stay tuned .
