NAV Noël – A Holiday Hack!

Christmas with NAV

Here at Catapult we take the holidays pretty seriously. That, and our work of course!

We wanted to make sure that our NAV’s holiday spirit matched that of our own. After a bit of encouragement (i.e. hacks), we can proudly report that it’s definitely jumped on board the holiday train.

So here it is, from our NAV to yours.

 

Although it looks like we might have gone a bit too far. As you can see, the prospect of not having a “holly, jolly Christmas” doesn’t quite seem to register…

Want to have some fun with your NAV? Here’s how:

For all you NAV code editors out there, here are the instructions!

1. Take a backup of Codeunit1 (Application Management)

NAV-Holiday-Codeunit

2. Create two new functions called “ComeAllYeNAVful” and “HaveMerryChristmas

NAV-holiday-functions

3. Set up local variables for both these Functions:

  • ComeAllYeNAVful: Variables
NAV_christmas

ComeAllYeNAVful: Text Constants

NAV-Christmas-text

HaveMerryChristmas: Text Constants

nav_3_3

4. Add the code for the functions

NAV-holiday-code

5. Add the calls to the functions in the CompanyOpen trigger:

nav-holiday-company-open

And presto! Your NAV should be ready to deck the halls!

Feliz NAVidad

On behalf of the Catapult team, I’d like to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Channukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and of course, Feliz NAVidad!
