How to: Register a RoleTailored Client Control Add-in
The content in this topic only applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1. For Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 content, see Developer and IT Pro Help for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009.
A RoleTailored client control add-in is delivered as a Microsoft .NET Framework–based assembly, which is a .dll file. An assembly for RoleTailored client add-ins can contain more than one control add-in where each control add-in has a unique name. Before you can use a control add-in on pages, you use the Classic client to register it in the Client Add-in table of your Microsoft Dynamics NAV database.
To register a control add-in, provide the following information:
Control add-in name
The name is defined in the assembly's source code by the Microsoft.Dynamics.Framework.UI.Extensibility.ControlAddInExportAttribute attribute value for control add-in class definition, as shown in the following example code snippet:
In this example, the control add-in name is
Public key token
The public key token is a 16-character key that is given to the assembly when it is built and signed in Microsoft Visual Studio. To determine the public token key, run the Microsoft .NET Strong Name Utility (sn.exe) on the assembly. For more information, see How to: Determine the Public Key Token of the RoleTailored Client Control Add-in and Strong-Named Signing.
