Installing and Configuring Windows Client Control Add-ins on Pages
In the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, control add-ins add custom controls or visual elements, on Windows client page fields for displaying and editing data. When a control add-in is developed, it is compiled into a .NET Framework–based assembly, which is .dll file. To use a control add-in on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client pages, you must install and configure the control add-in assembly in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client environment, which is divided between two tiers: Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018 SQL Server database.
The following table outlines the tasks that you must perform on each tier.
