#CONV15 – Convergence 2015 Atlanta – The Countdown

David Meego - Click for blog homepageConvergence2015

The final countdown to Convergence 2015 in Atlanta is well and truly on. I know this because tonight I start my journey to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

I am flying to Sydney and then early tomorrow I have a direct flight from Sydney to Atlanta.

I plan to post blogs while at the conference after each day, but experience tells me that I might find that difficult with the very full days.

Anyhow, if you are still looking for reasons to come (other than seeing Mariano and me), check out the video below:

Looking forward to see everyone.

Silverlight "ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added" when attempting to print a report

It’s been about 3 months now since working with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 in our production environment. To recap, at Intelligent Partnerships we run all our information technology infrastructure on Microsoft Azure. A big reason for this, of course, is the high degree of mobility required by our consulting staff and the ability to access demo environments and be able to enter timesheets and expenses from anywhere in the world they happen to be. In addition, we need to be able to run our business and access our financials and analytics without being constrained to a particular geographical location. As such we rely heavily on Dynamics GP’s Web Client and Business Analyzer to achieve these goals.

One of the issues we started noticing with Web Client recently is, when you attempt to print a report – Standard or Template – but cancel out the printing on the Report Destination window, then attempt to print the report once more, we would receive the following Silverlight error message:

Severity: Critical Summary: A server side exception of type “ArgumentException” has occurred. Details: ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added. at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowArgumentException(ExceptionResource resource) at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Hierarchy`1.Add(T ancestor, T item) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexRuntimeStateResourceManager.Register(DexUri parentId, IWCDexWindow window) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.Adapters.WCDexFormOpenStateChangedNotificationAdapter.Notifications_FormOpenStateChanged(Object sender, DexUriEventArgs`1 e) at System.EventHandler`1.Invoke(Object sender, TEventArgs e) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.DexNotification.OnFormOpenStateChanged(DexUri uri, DexFormOpenState value) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.MsaCommandExec(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.<>c__DisplayClass26.b__25() at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.ExecuteMsaAction(Func`1 interopAction, String entryPoint) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.MacroSystemCommandExecute(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.DexMacroSystem.CommandExecute(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexMessageProcessor.ProcessCommandExecuteInstanceResourceMessage(IWCDexMessage msg) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexMessageProcessor.Process(IWCDexMessage message) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.DexRuntimeStateManager.SendMessage(IWCDexMessage message) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.DexRuntimeStateManager.MainEventLoop()

This particular error was received attempting to print a sales order processing quote, but we have been able to reproduce from other windows. While I don’t claim to understand all these exceptions, this particular one seems to refer to an issue caused by a “key” being added twice to the same “Generic.Dictionary” collection. Since the action causing the error seems to be a second attempt at printing a report – the same report it seems – somewhere along the lines it would appear that some value isn’t being cleared out from the collection of reports being printed which would cause a duplicate key. Again, pure speculation.

Nonetheless, in speaking to the Dynamics GP development team, it seems to be this issue has been written up and may be solved in the upcoming hotfix release. This issue can be reproduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 build 14.00.0619 (January Hotfix).

Until next post!

Chance to Fix a Bad Name

David Musgrave has just announced that he has completed the exclusive agreement with Microsoft to obtain the Support Debugging Tool source code.

He’s now looking at community feedback to fix the horrible name which always took a few tries to explain to people. “Why do I need a debugging tool ?” – most people I recommended the tool to asked me.

Go Vote for a new name that makes sense here – Where is the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015?

PS – It was a good thing the tool was named the support debugging tool. With a slightly better name, and consequently even more popularity David would have had much more difficulty getting the source code !

Update: Where is Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFollowing on from my other previous post Where is Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015? I can also confirm that Winthrop Development Consultants has negotiated an exclusive agreement with Microsoft to obtain the Menus for Visual Studio Tools source code.

The free version of the tool with the existing functionality will be made available as soon as possible.

I am still considering working on an advanced version with additional functionality for integration with Microsoft Dynamics GP that can only be achieved from Dexterity.  This advanced version could include support for features such as Home Page, Toolbars, Area Pages, Navigation Pane, Security, Lists, SmartLists, etc.

To help me decide how to proceed, please respond on the poll below:

Thanks for your feedback.
