Best Practices with Microsoft Dynamics NAV Events
This topic provides naming and coding guidelines for using events in Dynamics NAV.
|Event publisher function||The name should indicate the circumstances when the published event is raised. Begin the name with On followed by a descriptive name that can be easily identified.||OnCancelCustomerApprovalRequest|
|Event subscriber function||The name should indicate the operation that the subscriber performs. Begin the name with a phrase that indicates what the subscriber does, followed by the name of the publisher function to which it subscribes.||RunWorkflowOnCancelCustomerApprovalRequest|
|Variables and parameters||Follow the naming conventions that are defined in Naming Conventions. It is important that you define appropriate names from the beginning because the name becomes part of the interface definition.|
Whenever possible, make events local, so that all pre and post validation can remain in the object.
Use VAR parameters with care because they form a stricter coupling between the publisher and the subscriber.
