Update Tracking Line, Post Shipment using Web Services in Business Central

Hi, today I will discuss Web Service with below requirement. You can check other earlier post on this topic using search on right side of this blog page.

I got one request on topic from one of my customer cum blog follower, case study is as follows:

a) Will update Qty to Ship on document using Web Service from other application

b) Update Tracking Line for the Shipment using Web Service from other application

c) Post the Shipment using Web Service from other application

To get this we will create an Extension using VS Code which will have:

a) Codeunit with some functions which will be called using Web Service

b) A XML file to automatically expose above codeunit upon publishing this extension

Let us start how to achieve above requirement:

I have created this in BC16, will be same for other versions too.

Creating a AL Project:

Update your app.json & launch.json as per your environment, authentication, dependencies, port etc.

Creating a Codeunit: (TrackingCodeWS.al)

This function will be used to update “Qty. to Ship” on Sales Line

InitLot function as name suggests.

GetNextEntryNo function as name suggests.

It will depend on how you design your codeunit, you may require or not depends on logic how you use them.

AssignLotSalesLine is function which fills the lot details to temp Reservation Entry Table.

CreateReservationEntrySalesLine is the main function which actually makes your Tracking Lines and assign to Sales Line as per information filled in TempReservationEntry table in above function.

PostSalesOrder function is used for posting your Shipment.

Creating XML file to Publish Web Service

This XML file will ensure publishing of Web Service on Install of the Extension. You can directly make entry to Web Service table but benefit of using XML is when to Uninstall your extension the Web Service too will be removed, else if entry made to table you will have to take care to same yourself.

After Install of Extension, your Web Service is automatically Published.

Consume Web Service from Visual Studio

Below is the C# code to consume Web Service created above, you can modify code as per your requirement.

In above code we added Service Reference to Web Service and called functions created in Codeunit.

You can see earlier posts for step wise instruction how to add Web Reference to the Web Service in Visual Studio.

UpdateQtyToShipSalesLine:

Here “1” is used for Document Type = Order,”1008″ is my order no, 10000 is the Line No., 2 is the Quantity to Ship.

AssignLotSalesLine:

“L0001” & “L0002” is my Lot No, Serial No. is blank in this case, 1 is the Quantity, last three parameter is same as in above function call.

PostSalesOrder:

First 2 Parameter is same as above function call Document Type & Order No, third parameter is Ship = TRUE, Fourth Parameter is Invoice = FALSE.

Conclusion

This post gives you overall Idea how you can use Web Service to handle Sales Document from Web Service, you can make required modification to achieve exactly as per your requirement.

Extension Install Code

Extension install code is executed when:

  • An extension is installed for the first time.
  • An uninstalled version is installed again.

This gives you control to write different logics for first time installation of extension and reinstallations of uninstalled extensions.

This is achieved by defining Install Codeunit in your Extension.

First thing first:

  1. Subtype property of codeunit need to be set to Install
  2. OnInstallAppPerCompany trigger is triggered when the Extension is Installed first time or subsequent install of same version on Extension.
  3. DataVersion property one of the important properties which tells you what version of data that you’re dealing with.
  4. AppVersionDataVersionDependenciesIDName, and Publisher. These properties are encapsulated in a ModuleInfo data type. You can access these properties by using the NavApp.GetCurrentModuleInfo and NavApp.GetModuleInfo methods.
  5. If the DataVersion property equals Version.Create(0,0,0,0), then it’s the first time that the extension is installed because no data exists in the archive.

Sample codeunit can be similar to below:

codeunit <ID> “Name of Codeunit

{

    // Install Logic

    Subtype = Install;

    trigger OnInstallAppPerCompany();

    var

        myAppInfo: ModuleInfo;

    begin

        NavApp.GetCurrentModuleInfo(myAppInfo);

// Get info about the currently executing module

        if myAppInfo.DataVersion = Version.Create(0, 0, 0, 0) then

// A ‘DataVersion’ of 0.0.0.0 indicates a ‘fresh/new’ install

            HandleFreshInstall

        else

            HandleReinstall;

// If not a fresh install, then we are Reinstalling the same version of the extension

    end;

    local procedure HandleFreshInstall();

    begin

        // Logic to execute on first time this extension is ever installed for this tenant.

        // Some possible usages: – Initial data setup for use

    end;

    local procedure HandleReinstall();

    begin

        // Logic to execute on reinstalling the same version of this extension back on this tenant.

        // Some possible usages: – Data ‘patchup’ work, for example, detecting if new ‘base’

// records have been changed while you have been working ‘offline’.

    end;

}

Happy Learning.

Working with Collections

Today we will learn three types of collections supported by AL.

A collection is a complex type that contains multiple values in one variable.

You can’t have values with different types in the same collection. For example, you can’t add date values in a collection that only allows integer values.

The three types of collections that AL supports are:

  • Array
  • List
  • Dictionary

We will discuss about each type of collections in this post with examples.

Let’s start with most familiar collection we have used with old versions of Navision too, yes you are right, I am talking about Arrays.

Arrays

Arrays are complex variables that contain a group of values with the same data type.

An array holds multiple values, and these values are stored in the elements of the array. You can access these values by using the index, which can also be a value that is stored in another variable. With this design, you can create a loop where you increment a certain variable to loop through every element in an array.

By using the Dimension property, you can define how many dimensions that the array will hold.

When creating a variable of an array data type, you first need to define how many elements that you’ll have in the array. The most commonly used array is the one-dimensional array, which is a list of elements with the same data type.

You can represent an array as a row of values.

To create an array, use the following code:

SalesAmount: array[10] of Integer;

To access an element in an array, use the array element syntax:

SalesAmount[5] := 0;

Unlike other programming languages array index don’t starts with 0 rather with 1. In above example first element will be 1 and last 10.

Having only one element between the square brackets indicates that you are using a one-dimensional array. If you want to have a multi-dimensional array, use a comma-separated list between the brackets, as follows:

SalesAmount: array[6,9] of Integer;

To access an element in an array, use the array element syntax:

SalesAmount[5,3] := 0;

Lists

The List data type can be compared with an array. The List type can only be used with fundamental types and represents a strongly typed list of values that can be accessed by index.

Therefore, you can have a List type of [Integer], but you cannot have a List type of [Blob].

List data type doesn’t require you to define how many elements you want to store up front (while an Array data type does).

The List data type has some methods that are used frequently. The methods that are available for a List data type will discuss in a later post.

To create a list, use the following code:

CustomerNames: List of [Text];

To access an element in a list, use the following methods:

To store/add values to list

CustomerNames.Add(‘KSD Consultancy’);

CustomerNames.Add(‘Microsoft India’);

CustomerNames.Add(‘Ashwini Tripathi’);

To retrive values from list

CustomerNames.Get(1);

Dictionary

The Dictionary data type represents a collection of keys and values.

Every key that you create in this dictionary must be unique. The main benefit is that you can immediately get the value for a specific key.

The value can be a type, but it can also be a List or another Dictionary data type.

Blow code sequence will give you idea how to use dictionary data type:

//Declaring List

CustomerNamesIN: List of [Text];

CustomerNamesUS: List of [Text];

CustomerNamesCA: List of [Text];

//Declaring Dictionary

CountryWiseCustomer: Dictionary of [Code[20], List of [Text]];

//Assigning values to List

CustomerNamesIN.Add(‘KSD Consultancy’);

CustomerNamesIN.Add(‘Microsoft India’);

CustomerNamesIn.Add(‘Ashwini Tripathi’);

CustomerNamesUS.Add(‘Paul’);

CustomerNamesUS.Add(‘Linda’);

CustomerNamesCA.Add(‘Eddy’);

CustomerNamesCA.Add(‘Mark’);

//Assigning values to Dictionary

CountryWiseCustomer.Add(‘IN’,CustomerNamesIN);

CountryWiseCustomer.Add(‘US’,CustomerNamesUS);

CountryWiseCustomer.Add(‘CA’,CustomerNamesCA);

//Retrieving value from Dictionary

CountryWiseCustomer.Get(‘IN’).Get(1);

Here is the complete code:

Created new codeunit and declared variables & procedures to manipulate values in Collections.

Added Code to call procedures defined in codeunit, to assign and retrieve values from collections.

Now its time to check output of above code.

Hope you get idea how to work with Collections, you may find more posts in coming days where we may discuss about methods available for collection.

AL, BC14, BC17, Business Central, Development Tips, Dynamics 365, Enum, Extension Package, How To, Modern Development Tool, Option, Visual Studio Code, Wave 2, Web Client

Options VS Enums

To define a variable of type Option, you can’t use the OptionMembers property that’s used on a field of data type Option. You need to list the available options as a comma-separated list after your variable definition.

For example:- Color: Option Red,Green,Yellow;

If you want to reuse the same Option type in other objects (like other codeunits, pages, or tables), you have to redefine all available values. Later, if you decide to add an extra value, you need to modify all objects with this extra value. Options in a table are not extendable with a table extension.

Solution to this is now available as enum.

An enum is a separate object with its own number and name. You can use an Enum object in other object without the need to redefine it at each object level. The Enum object can also be extended with enum extensions.

Lets see example defining and using enum.

I have created a EnumDefinition.al to define my custom enum Color.

I have defined one Function SelectColor to access values.

To call the Function and test result created extension of Customer List page and added code to access the value.

Now we can use this Enum throughout the extension in any objects without redefining it as in case of Option.

Let’s Publish the extension and see the result.

As you can remember from above code, I have selected color Green and have put the code to call of function on trigger of Customer List page, OnOpenPage.

The Enum object can also be extended with enum extensions.

Extending the Enum

Lets create new Extension, app.json file set dependencies to earlier/above Extension.

Next let’s extend our enum Color.

Next let’s create codeunit for function to access value of enum.

To call the Function and test result created extension of Customer List page and added code to access the value.

Let’s Publish the extension and see the result.

As you can remember from above code, I have selected color Red & Brown and have put the code to call of function on trigger of Customer List page, OnOpenPage.

Red is from earlier defined Color enum (Red, Green, Yellow), & Brown from extended enum (Blue, Black, Brown).
