Dynamics.Application Object not available on Web Client


David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis article comes about because we have identified a feature of GP Power Tools that does not work as expected on the Web Client. GP Power Tools has the ability to run scripts and register triggers against Modifier added fields and Modal Dialogs. These features uses the Dynamics.Application object and in particular a suite of functionality historically known as “Continuum”.

We can now confirm that the Dynamics.Application object is not available at all when running Microsoft Dynamics GP in the Web Client and so any functionality reliant on this object will fail to work.

Microsoft Dynamics GP HTML5 Web Client Date Format issue will be fixed


David Meego - Click for blog homepageA little while back I was discussing the Microsoft Dynamics GP HTML5 Web Client with an Australian Partner Consultant and he told me about an issue I was not aware of with date formats.

It turns out that the HTML5 web client does not display date formats correctly for anyone outside of North America. More specifically, the date format used in the application windows is in MM/DD/YYYY format regardless of your workstation’s regional settings.

Using the Named System Database Feature for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013


Aaron Donat - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Aaron Donat originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

After visiting with a group of Partners who attended the Technical Airlift this past week in Fargo, it became clear that the design intent behind the Named System Database feature and the perception of how it could be used in the field were not on the same page. With that, I decided that we really need to clear this misconception up and walk though the details of what the Named System Database feature can and can’t do for you.

Aaron Donat - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Aaron Donat originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

With the newly announced release of Microsoft Dynamics 2013 Beta to all partners, what better time to begin talking about the Dynamics GP Web Client since there is HUGE excitement around this feature.  With the “BUZZ” floating around the Fargo campus this week, now is the time to start sharing the foundation of what GP Web Client really is, what are those required and deployed components and how does this product actually function. Over the next few posts, I will be covering these dependencies attempting to get you to started thinking about the GP Web Client as much as you think about Dynamics GP today. We all realize that in order to have a successful deployments, the single most important component in any deployment is the pre-planning and coordination effort. We want to help you in that planning and coordination and will do the best we can through documentation and videos. With that said, everyone’s focus right now is getting the GP Web Client up running in your environment and begin understanding the requirements so you can position and sell it to our customers.

Dynamics GP Developer Insights: Web Client Window Ribbon – Part 2


Rushi Patel - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Rushi Patel originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Hey, I am Rushi Patel. I am a software developer working on the Microsoft Dynamics GP team in Fargo the last 3 years. I like to spend my time with my family, watching movies and cricket.

At Microsoft, I have worked on Office Accounting and Dynamics GP Workflow prior to my current project – the GP web client. I mostly worked on the UI features of web client before I started working on the Window Ribbon feature. Window Ribbons, as the name implies, appears to be a purely UI concept. That’s true, however there are many dependencies to make Window Ribbons render on web client such as sanScript code and Dexterity support/enhancements that will be explained in depth in this series of articles.

Hello, my name is Chris Rudolph.  I have been working as a software engineer on the Dynamics GP team here in Fargo since the summer of 2008.  I like to spend my time hanging out with my wife (we just started disc golf!) and playing the cello.

So far at Microsoft I have worked on a variety of projects including the WCF conversion and install for GP Web Services 2010, the Workflow install, SRS reports, Analysis Cubes for AA, and now the web client.  My web client work has been primarily in the depths of the Dexterity runtime and the ‘interop’ layer it uses to communicate with the .NET world.

Hi, I’m Kurt Larson, a software development engineer on Dynamics GP. Despite my friends’ dire warnings I moved to Fargo a couple years ago to work for Microsoft and haven’t regretted it for a second. (I like to stay inside most of the time anyways to play Guitar Hero and tabletop games.)

At Microsoft I’ve worked on SRS reports, SRS deployment, and Business Portal virtual lists, and now I’m excited to be on the GP web client – this article explains some of the work that’s gone into the web client UI and what we’ve learned about Silverlight along the way.
