I wanted to share about how you can get started with AL. If you have already started with AL and you have a different approach please feel free to share with us in comments.

In this post we will see about pre-requisite required for creating an AL project.

Getting system ready for AL

  • Mark ‘Enable Developer Service Endpoint’ and ‘Enable loading application symbol references at startup’ in NAV Server as shown below:
  • Open Visual Studio Code. Select Extensions in Activity Bar in Visual Studio Code
  • Click the ‘More’ option and choose ‘Install from VSIX’
  • Choose AL Language extension from the product DVD as shown below and click Install
  • You can see that AL Language has been installed in Visual Studio Code

Now we have the environment ready for creating our first AL project 😊
