The following walkthrough demonstrates how to develop a RoleTailored client add-in and use it on a RoleTailored client page. Add-ins are Microsoft .NET assemblies that allow you to add custom functionality to the RoleTailored client. An application programming interface (API) lets you develop add-ins without having to access the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 source code.

In a typical business scenario, .NET developers create add-ins using Microsoft Visual Studio Express, Visual Studio 2005, or Visual Studio 2008. Implementers of Microsoft Dynamics NAV solutions then use the add-ins on RoleTailored client pages.
