Properties Overview

This section describes the properties that are available to developers in Dynamics 365 Business Central for controlling the behavior of objects, like tables, pages, and reports. Use the table of contents to scan the properties, or use search to find a property if you know its name.

There are different properties for various the AL object types. Some properties can be set on the object-level, and others pertain to specific controls of the object. Properties are added at the beginning of the code for the object or control, after the its definition, by using the syntax: Property_name = value;. For example:

page 50100 MyPage
{
    // Page object properties
    PageType = Card;
    ApplicationArea = All;
    UsageCategory = Administration;
    SourceTable = Customer;
    
    layout
    {
        area(Content)
        {
            group(GroupName)
            {
                field(Name; Name)
                {
                    // Field properties
                    ApplicationArea = All;                                     
                }
            }
        }
    }
