How to Add my Custom Language Pack to W1 Version?

Post you build the PartnerTranslation solution from inside Visual Studio, choose Build Solution from the Build menu.

This will pick up all translated artifacts, and create three installer files (.msi):

  • Server.msi – Located in the Server\Bin\Debug folder.
  • RTC.msi – Located in the RTC\Bin\Debug folder.
  • WebClient.msi – Located in the WebClient\Bin\Debug folder.

You can check my earlier post for more details:

How do I translate my ResX Files?

Managing Multilanguage support in Navision Overview

 

ilm-01

Install the new language pack on the target computer with W1. To do this, select and click each of the three .msi files listed below, one after the other. The order is not significant:

  • Server\Bin\Debug\Server.msi
  • RTC\Bin\Debug\RTC.msi
  • WebClient\Bin\Debug\WebClient.msi

Each installer quickly shows a dialog, which disappears when the installer has completed.

ilm-02

The language pack is now installed, but you must make some final configuration.

Next step is to register root assemblies with strong name key token in the Add-ins table

Microsoft Dynamics NAV cannot load untrusted assemblies. To enable your custom resource assemblies as trusted, you must register the strong name key in the database:

  1. Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment.
  2. On the View menu, choose Object Designer, and then choose Table.
  3. Navigate to the Add-in table, table 2000000069, and then choose Run.
  4. For each assembly, enter the name and the public key token used when signing the files. The assemblies to add can be found in the Output folder of Partner Translation Tool Project.

ilm-03

To find the public key token, use the Strong Name tool (sn.exe) with the -T parameter.

At the command prompt, enter the following command: sn.exe –T

For example, enter the following command to find the public key token for the Microsoft.Dynamics.Framework.UI.dll file:

sn.exe –T Microsoft.Dynamics.Framework.UI.dll.

The sample assemblies that are included in the Partner Translation solution have the following signature: 15e5b2499d4875c1.

Optionally, you can use PowerShell to register a strong name key for the custom resource assemblies.

New-NAVAddIn -AddInName -PublicKeyToken -Category LanguageResource

Next step is, you need to update the Languages page:

  1. In the Object Designer, choose Pages.
  2. Navigate to the Languages page, page 9, and then choose Run.
  3. Add the Arabic Jordan (ARJ) language to it.

ilm-04

Restart the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service

To enable the newly added language, you must restart the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service:

  1. Choose the Start button, point to Administrative Tools, and then choose Services.
  2. In the Services window, right-click Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, and on the shortcut menu, choose Restart.

Connect to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server and select the new language

After you have restarted the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server service, you can then open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Client and select the new language:

  1. Choose the Start button, and then choose Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
  2. Choose Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and then choose Select Language.
  3. In the Language Selection field, select the new language, Arabic (Jordan), and then choose the OK button.

ilm-05

Complete Captions are not translated for this project yet at the time of writing of this post and it is in progress, but the sample screen will look like one shown below.

ilm-06

Will come up with more details in my upcoming posts, till then keep exploring and learning.

Translating Multilanguage Files in Navision 2017 for Arabic Jordan

Captions and other user interface text that you define for objects in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment can be exported to a text file. You can then add new translations to the text file and import the new translations in the development environment. You can add translations manually using Notepad, Microsoft Excel, and so on.

The exported text files contain an entry for each translatable user interface element for the objects that you selected in the development environment. However, the text file also includes entries that cannot be translated. For example, if you export the strings for table 18, the resulting text file contains hundreds of entries, of which fewer than 170 can be translated. The translatable strings include the captions of for all fields and the error messages that you have defined. The non-translatable strings include names of variables, and so on.

In CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database, all objects are multilanguage enabled, and they include strings with captions in the 1033 locale, English (US). The locale is specified by a multilanguage property such as P8629, but the ID of the actual property is different for different types of strings. However, the locale for the multilanguage property value always starts with the character A. For example, the English (US) captions are identified by the A1033 locale value for the relevant multilanguage property. You can identify which strings can be translated by opening the file in Microsoft Excel and then filter by the English locale.

If you export strings for objects of different types, the text file lists the strings by object type and then by object ID. For example, if you export strings for table 18, page 21, and report 111, the text file lists strings in the following order:

  1. Table 18
  2. Report 111
  3. Page 21

The format of the exported text files can be difficult to read, because for each type of object, the text file contains different types of strings. Each type of string is identified by a property that starts with the character P followed by an ID.

For example, for a table object and the fields on the table, the multilanguage property has the ID 8629.

For option values for fields on tables, the multilanguage property has the ID 8632.

This means that you can identify the type of string when you translate the strings. However, you should filter out all strings that are not translatable, which makes the remaining strings easier to understand.

The following table illustrates the translatable strings for table 18 in the CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database.

String Description
T18-P8629-A1033-L999:Customer The caption of the table object.
T18-F1-P8629-A1033-L999:No. The caption of field 1.
T18-F7601-P8629-A1033-L999:Copy Sell-to Addr. to Qte From T18-F7601-P8632-A1033-L999:Company,Person The caption of field 7601 and the captions of the option values for the field.
T18-Q1001-P26171-A1033-L999:Do you wish to create a contact for %1 %2? A text constant that defines user interface text.

For more information, see How to: Add Translated Strings By Importing and Exporting Multilanguage Files.

Here it is assumed that the Language Module Installer are prepared by translating resx files and Partner Translation Tool project is build and same is Installed.

You can check my earlier post for more details:

How do I translate my ResX Files?

Managing Multilanguage support in Navision Overview

tmf-02

After preparing Language Module Installer and installing the same our next step is to add the translated Captions to CaptionML.

You have other methods to do the same below is one which I have used to get my task done.

Export the objects in txt format from the database (ObjectToTranslate.txt).

tmf-03

My objects have ENU and want to add translation for ARJ.

You can use below PS Script to extract Language Layer from the objects.

Export-NavApplicationObjectLanguage -Source ObjectToTranslate.txt -LanguageId ENU, ARJ -Destination translated.txt

In our objects, we have ENU and we are supposed to add ARJ Caption translation.

Above command will extract the ENU Captions and add entries for ARJ where we can add our translated string for Arabic Jordan.

Open the translated.txt in notepad and save as translatedNew01.txt, make sure you select Encoding = UTF-8.

Open the File [translatedNew01.txt] in Excel as below defined step:

 

tmf-04tmf-05tmf-06tmf-07tmf-08

Translate to Arabic Jordan as one shown in above screen.

Add you translation after [ : ]

Once all done Save your file as shown below:

tmf-09

Open the file in Notepad to check format is not disturbed and output is as below:

tmf-10

Next step in upcoming post.

Till then keep exploring and learning.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV ‘Tenerife’ Developer Preview

As everyone is aware by now that Preview of Development Tools for Dynamics NAV have been released. Going forward which can be used to build extensions and apps in and for Dynamics NAV.

This tool introduces two flavors which you can try out in preview available on cloud.

[A] Make an extension in the client itself. Business consultants and UX designers will love using this drag-and-drop interface. Rearrange fields, rename groups, and reposition elements to build a perfect extension to support an industry-specific solution or implement a business process optimization.

[B] Use the AL Extension for NAV in Visual Studio Code to build powerful extensions based on tables, pages, and codeunits using the new objects: Page Extensions and Table Extensions. Follow this route to build rich extensions that reuse and extend core business logic in your application.

For more details you can refer to the article published by Dynamics NAV Team Announcing the Preview of Development Tools for Dynamics NAV

You can get a free 30-day trial from https://azure.microsoft.com/free/ that will give you access to everything you need.

Secondly, head over to http://aka.ms/navdeveloperpreview. Login to your Azure Subscription. Select your subscription, resource group, location, name, and a VM Admin Password. Leave the remaining fields as their defaults. Accept the terms, Pin to dashboard and select Purchase. The instance takes about 5 minutes to set up, and the VM will be ready about 15 minutes after Azure says Deployment Succeeded.

You need to follow on screen instructions to get everything setup using above 2 links provided.

I am not going to repeat the steps as you can find them via other blogs or follow the steps as you proceed via using above two links.

Few of my readers were complaining about they don’t have access to Azure Subscription or they have already used up the limit now what to do?

Same situation was with me too, but however I managed to get one and done bit RND, if this can be setup on my PC so that I can give it a try or others can use same steps to get it configured, and give it a try.

However I got succeeded in doing so, now I can do the same in my environment.

The Steps I am going to explain below is not the straight forward, and require bit tricks, as required components are yet not released from Microsoft, may we can get in CU-2,  I guess or later when Microsoft is OK to release this feature for everyone.

This action will require several pre-requisite to be fulfilled:

  1. Visual Studio Code (To be Installed)
  2. Dynamics Navision Version (10.0.14540)
  3. Some Modification to web.config to enable designer in Web Client

Multiple Line Mail Body Formatting without using Mail Templates

I came across one requirement from one of my customer, so I decided to share the solution with you all.

In today’s post we will see how we can create multi line mail body for SMTP mail.

Lets start with the solution rather than talking of logic.

Step-1: Create a codeunit for the function or decide where you wish to add this function

Step-2: Define Variables

1

you may notice that Variable CRLF is defined as Text with Size 2.

Define all other variables that you may require as per your logic.

Step-3: Write the function. Define your parameters and additional codes you may require as per your logic.

2

In above code notice that I have set last parameter of CreateMessage as FALSE for(HTMLFormatted), this is required else CRLF logic will not work.

Where ever I require New Line I just add CRLF.

3

Step-4: SMTP Mail Setup I am using as below for live.com, you check with yours SMTP details accordingly.

4

Yes we are done now you can execute the above function to generate your mails.

I will come up with more details in my upcoming posts, till then keep exploring and learning.
