I created the code and it worked with some test values. The problem is that when I run the code in the onInsert trigger, the record isn't inserted yet and then I can not lookup values of the record. Is there something like an afterInsert trigger or another way to do this?
How to add new record in a simple table?
Thanks in advance, Geert. When you are in OnInsert you have all values in Rec I pass the ID of an employee record to a codeunit. This codeunit then uses the xmlport to extract an xml file. The problem is when I 've added a new record, this new record is not yet in the employee table because I use the onInsert trigger. If I use the rec, then I must create my xml file manually.
Any tips are welcome because I'm quit new in Navision and don't know what all the objects can do. Kind regards, Geert. Abraham Member Posts: 7. You can use the onModify trigger of the table to copy or update the record in the secondary table, each time you modify the record in your source form, the onModify trigger of the table will run and update the other table.
Another idea is to create a button in your form that will export the contents of any record in the table to the other table. Pass whole record into the codeunit instead ID only This brutal hack simulates an onAfterInsert trigger. OnInsert Rec.

Check for Auto Increment property on the field.With this blog postMicrosoft announced the March update of the Developer Preview.
In the blog post Microsoft listed a number of nice improvements and a lot of fixed issues. The tableextension object has four new triggers:. Back in NAV we got database events that we can subscribe to. Those events are executed after the database operation. If you want to update data in the record, you have to use MODIFY again, otherwise data will not be saved to the table.
To read more about this behavior, I can recommend this in-depth blog post from Vjeko. With AL this behavior has not changed. The database events are still being raised after the database operation. While an event subscriber in a codeunit always run. In other words: Rec. Insert true will execute both OnAfterInsertTrigger in the tableextension and the event subscriber in the codeunit, while Rec. Insert false will only execute the event subscriber in the codeunit.
So we still need to do Rec. Modify in the tableextension trigger to preserve data in the record. Which can potentially lead to unintended looping between insert and modify triggers and event subscribers.
So here is where the new triggers in the tableextension object kick in. Like the OnAfter triggers in the tableextension, they only run when RunTrigger is true. With so many triggers and events, I thought it would be a good idea to compose a list with the correct order in which they are executed.
So here is a table for the database insert same applies to modify, delete and rename of course :. I think that the OnAfter triggers in tableextensions are now getting less important, to not say quite useless. In my view, the new triggers are what the OnAfter triggers should have been in the first place. But then again, I would rather go with an event subscriber because then I know that the code will always run, regardless of the RunTrigger parameter.
But it also depends on the scenario of course. Anyway, you probably want to move your code from the OnAfter triggers or the event subscribers to these new tableextension triggers to avoid the unintended endless loop that can be caused by using Rec. Enabling access to local functions in tableextensions would make those new OnInsert etc.

This blog introduces using triggers by showing how they work with Tables and Fields. Open Visual Studio and, after completing all the prerequisites changes in app. Figure 2 — Adding Triggers. Figure 3 — An example of how to create a page and add a trigger inside a field. The trigger OnValidate is helpful where we require a condition on the characters that can be entered in the field. In this example, we have required that the length of name in the field must be greater than three characters.
Once the page is created, publish it and move to the web client to see the trigger is working. Press F5 to publish it and a new window of the default browser opens. Figure 4 — Use IntelliSense to search for the page created.
Figure 5 — The Insert trigger is fired as soon as the "ID" is entered in the page. Once the page name is inserted, the system indicates a new record was inserted. This is the initial message whenever a new entry is made on the page.

Figure 6 — The condition for the "Name" field triggers an error. Figure 7 — Modifying a record fires the OnModify trigger. Now try to change the primary key of the entity in the table and see what all it gives you. The system will ask you to confirm whether you want to rename the primary key. If you select Yes, the OnRename trigger is fired.
Figure 8 — The OnRename trigger is fired when the Primary key is changed. Now observe what happens when you delete a record. When a record is deleted, the system fires the OnDelete trigger.Site Search User. Thread information. Share More Cancel.

VAT"both have code in the OnValidate-Trigger, and both enter data into the other field "amount" calculates the amount including VAT, and "amount incl. So one trigger should execute the other. Obviously this isn't that way and this loop has an end.
So: when does the system execute the trigger "OnValidate"? And why does this work, that one trigger calculates the value of the other field??
I'm a little confused about that Stefan Weinreich Billing Analyst. So the other trigger is never executed.
VAT" field without using SalesLine. That's not the case in the table 37s fields "Amount" and "Amount inlc. VAT" - only one of the triggers is called and it assigns a value to the other field.
Hope this helps! Up 0 Down Cancel. Stefan Weinreich over 17 years ago. Hey Nikola, it helps understanding the way navision works. But - in my understanding the system executes the trigger of a field, when a record is inserted or modified?!
What happens, if i fill a field of a table manually? Is then OnValidate executed? What is, if a report or form fills the fields? Offline walter kirz over 17 years ago. Hi Stefan, what do you mean with "manually"? Use the object designer on a table and klick "run". If you fill out anything in any field because you are working in a form the apllication will trigger the "on validate"-trigger.
F2 twice on a field will trigger as well. If the field is filled out by a report e. Even the OnModify rigger will not be used you have to use SalesLine. To trigger OnValidate in a report you have to use this syntax: SalesLine. Dmitry Chadaev over 17 years ago.
Hi Stefan, Nikola is right - you there is a difference between executing a trigger and executing the code on that trigger. System will NOT execute the code on a trigger if you not ask for that explicitly. Example : If you write Rec. INSERT - the system will just insert a new record into a table without executing the code on that trigger!!!Skip to main content.

How to add new record in a simple table? Hi, I am newbie and want to know what code should be there for new record insertion? I want to put code in Code unit and dont want to set any code in table.
With Best Regards, Naimish Dave. Offline kriki over 14 years ago. If you don't want this, use recMyRecord. I hope this helps you starting in Navision. Good Luck! Up 0 Down Cancel. Naimish Dave over 14 years ago. Hi, Thanks I will try it and will revert back if any problem. Naimish Dave over 13 years ago. I want to know that how to insert record in more than one table tables, in my case I have created a card for job timesheet and insertin record in it, now here I want to add same record in other table also so what should be code for it as I dont how to add record in table whci h fields are not avialable on card.
Offline kriki over 13 years ago. It is not completely clear to me what you wanted to say, but I'll try anyway. To add this record to another table: recNewTable. If this is not the case, you have to transfer the fields 1 by 1. I hope this answers your question. David Cox over 13 years ago. Namish I have been developing Navision for 10 years now, when I started this forum was email based, the way I learned my skills was by lookin at the codeunits in Navision, and trying to understand them, there are many examples of how to Insert and Modify records.
Lets look at posting codeunit 80 this is large but if you can understand how it works, you will have a better understanding. It checks to see if the records are filled out properly, headers and lines. It filters the lines and checks to see if there is anything to post. It creates and Transfers some of the Sales Header fields to Sales Shipment Header, then it does the same with the lines.
