As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been taking a look at the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP. I started creating a form to store some additional details against a Creditor but wanted the form available in a similar way to the Creditor Addresses; available from both the Creditor form and from the Cards menu.
Getting the form to display a menu option on the Additional tab of the Creditor window was easy enough but I had trouble finding out how to make it display on the Cards menu.
After struggling with it for a while, I remembered reading a discussion between Mariano Gomez and David Musgrave about long module names and how Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 wasn’t the longest but instead Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 was the longest.
A quick search found the module, in the very obvious location, of David Musgrave’s Developing for Dynamics GP blog; Menus for Visual Studio Tools Build 9 Released which can be downloaded from either PartnerSource (login required) or CustomerSource (login required).
The module comes with full instructions on how to install and use it.
