How to create Custom Notification in Business Central

This blog post I am writing based on request of one of the follower.

Even though notification is not new business central world but today we will see how we will write custom notification and get notified for certain validations.

To create notifications I added following simple scenario that when my page get opened it should show some notification.

Lets see how we can do this.

To generate this notification I have used customer list page and subscribe on OnOpenPageEvent to execute my notification.

In this notification whenever page will get open it will show notification and whenever user click on Contact Us it will redirect to my blog.

Once this piece of code is published and as soon as customer list page opens you will see the result of notification as below

Hope this will help you.

How to Implement Interface in Business Central

With the release of Business Central Wave 1 2020 new feature was introduced called ‘Interface’. It is basically syntactical contract that can be implemented by a non-abstract method. This allows for writing code that reduces the dependency on implementation details, makes it easier to reuse code.
