#MSCONNECT GP – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Documentation

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the third in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the lack of updated documentation for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, submitted by Vaidy Mohan.

Ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 the documentation available for the product has been becoming scarcer. With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 there were 96 files installed into the documentation folder.

From Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 onwards there have been only 15 files in the folder and those have barely been updated for the GP 2015 and GP 2016 releases. If you open the pdf manuals, they mostly refer to GP 2013.

Updates for the documentation for Dexterity and the Dexterity help file as well as the SDK documentation has been lacking in the last releases.

I know that keeping the documentation up to date requires time and resources, but it is a valuable part of any software product, especially something as large and complex and Microsoft Dynamics GP.

So if you want the documentation kept up to date with the software, please vote using the links below.

#MSCONNECT Open more than one window at a time in GP2016 Web Client

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the first in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 HTML5 Web Client, submitted by Belinda Allen MVP.

Unlike the previous Silverlight based web client, the new HTML5 web client will only allow one active window at a time. You cannot have two or more windows open at the same time and work between them.

This also means that you cannot have a companion window open at the same time. Companion windows are additional windows often used by ISVs and customisation developers to add additional fields to a window without having to create alternate windows.

Note: You can only create alternate windows from core Dynamics.dic windows and can only have one alternate window selected for use at a time. Alternate windows cannot be created from a third party window (alternate or original).

A common example of a companion window is an Extender form with additional user defined fields. It would not be possible to have the Extender window open at the same time as the parent window. You would need to open and close it to return to the parent window underneath each time.

If the window you want to access does not have direct navigation from the current window, you would need to use the new window search facility to search for the other window each time to bring it to the foreground.

If you would like the option to have the previous web client behaviour back, please vote using the links below:

#VSIT Visual Studio Integration Toolkit build 11 released

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFor the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP developers out there, I am pleased to announce that the next build of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT) is now available for download.

The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit was previously known as Menus for Visual Studio Tools (MVST), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported product.

This build adds support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 as well as adding a full installer, digitally signed DLLs and registration system.

Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit is available for the following Microsoft Dynamics GP versions:

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 (v11.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and GP 2013 R2 (v12.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and GP 2015 R2 (v14.0)
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 (v16.0).

The installer supports multiple instances of Microsoft Dynamics GP as well as silent installs and will automatically install the Dexterity product dictionary and dual signed Dictionary Assembly DLL files into the correct folders for you.

The registration system allows us to track the usage of the tool so that we can support it better. The current menu navigation functionality of the tool does require registration to work, but there is no cost for that registration. You will need to contact Mekorma for registration via their Order Now page to obtain keys for each customer site using Visual Studio Integration Toolkit.

At a later stage additional features will be added to a “Professional” version of the toolkit and these will need to be registered with an annual subscription fee.

Important: When installing VSIT on a system which already has MSVT installed, you will be asked to restart Microsoft Dynamics GP to complete the renaming of the product. You will also need to remove and re-add your reference to the Application.MenusForVisualStudioTools.dll assembly in your Visual Studio projects.

More Information

For more information and download links, please see the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit Portal page:

More information on the additional functionality being added to the “professional” version will be posted on this blog, so watch this space.

Please post comments and feedback.

Friday Funny: Software Development Issues

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday’s Friday Funny is not really a joke, but instead gives a few examples of how not to write software.

Even my previous employer, Microsoft, is not immune and will be my first example.

You might remember a joke along the lines of:

Patient: Doctor, it hurts when I poke myself here.

Doctor: Then don’t poke yourself there.

This appears to be the solution offered by Microsoft to a performance issue in Windows 8.1 when a user name contains the string “user”.

From: High CPU use by taskhost.exe when Windows 8.1 user name contains “user” (KB 3053711)

Symptoms
In Windows 8.1, when the user account name contains the word “user”, intermittently you will find the process taskhost.exe keeps consuming high CPU percentage.

Cause
This is a problem in the component DFPCommon.dl in Windows 8.1.

Resolution
To resolve the issue, do not create a user account contains the string “user” on the computer.


The next couple are screenshots which serve as reminders to avoid the mistakes made by others:

  • Even when you never expect an error message to be displayed, keep your language clean.

ErrorMessage1

  • Use the correct data types when storing data, for example: don’t use numeric data types for phone numbers.

ErrorMessage2
