To extend a Microsoft Dynamics NAV object by using .NET Framework interoperability, you define a C/AL variable that calls members of a .NET Framework type in an assembly. When the variable is called from the C/AL code of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV object, it creates an instance of the .NET Framework type. You can set the type instance to target the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client (client-side object) or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server (server-side object). By default, a type is set to target Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. However, you can set the type to target the RoleTailored client.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Client and Microsoft Dynamics NAV SharePoint Client Support
For the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client and SharePoint applications that run on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Portal Framework, you can only implement Microsoft .NET Framework interoperability objects that target Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. Microsoft .NET Framework interoperability objects that target the client are not supported.
Use the following best practices when you extend Microsoft Dynamics NAV objects:
- To optimize performance, you should limit the
calls between client-side and server-side objects. If possible, you
should run objects server-side, especially for advanced
- If the client-side and server-side objects
will share data, such as return values and parameters, then the
.NET Framework types that define the objects must be capable of
