In Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1, RoleTailored client control add-ins add custom controls, or visual elements, on RoleTailored 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 RoleTailored client pages, you must install and configure the control add-in assembly in the RoleTailored client environment, which is divided between two tiers: RoleTailored client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SQL server database.
