AL Basics – Part-1

Programming in AL is very easy, just we need to make up our mind to accept the changes. Till we resist to changes it seems to be hard once we accept it, that becomes easy.

In VS Code, for AL it provides Snippets which help you with creating your base structure following which you can easy build up your complex coding structures.

Few Snippets ready to use are as below:

To Create Structure of Snippet to use
Table ttable
Page tpage
Codeunit tcodeunit
Page Extension tpageext
Table Extension ttableext
Table Field tfield
Page Field tfieldpage
Trigger ttriger
Functions/Procedure tprocedure
Assert error tassert
With Do twithdo
If tif
If Else tifelse
Case of tcaseof
Case else tcaseelse
For tfor
While twhile
Repeat Until trepeat

Today I will explain on conditional and loop statements for others I will do in next post.

These statements are similar as we are familiar with using in our C/AL.

Below are few examples to explain them, since no changes so need not commentary for same.

For other Snippets will come in next post.
