As well as a strong interest in Dynamics GP, I tend to have an interest in most things computer related. As such I have a few years experience with HTML+CSS and have created a few sites in the past, in addition to this blog on which I have done some customisations and enhancements of the code and theme.
I do find some of CSS a bit of a hassle when it comes to changing common elements such as colour so I was interested when I heard about the concept of SASS or Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets (I’ll admit to being happier with the acronym than the full name).
Packt Publishing, who are publishing my Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Cookbook, have published a SASS CSS How-to book by Alex Libby. This book takes a look at how to write more efficient CSS using the SASS CSS library through practical hands-on recipes;
I started reviewing Leslie Vail’s book, Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications,which was published at the end of December by Packt Publishing, a few weeks ago. To do this review I decided to take a read through and complete all the examples she gives on developing an application as I’ve only had very limited experience with Dexterity;
Today I’m taking a look at Chapter 5 which covers sanScript and how to add it to windows to enable the required functionality. The key topics to be covered are:
- Introduction to sanScript
- Scrolling Windows

This chapter is all about Building the User Interface which Leslie does by getting the reader to build an interface for customer contacts integration and covers:
- Creating base resources
- Creating tables and keys
- Creating forms and windows
- Creating scrolling windows
- Working with window fields
- Completing your windows
So from this chapter I expect to get a good grounding in creating an entirely new window which should look like this:

Back in the early years of my career, before I became involved with Microsoft Dynamics GP, I was a trainee developer (admittedly on PICK Databasic) before moving on and learning a little VB6 and then into Microsoft Dynamics GP consultancy.
I’ve kept my hand in enough that I can still do some coding and last weekend, after chatting with a developer in the office who is creating some new screens for GP, I decided to have a little dabble with the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP myself. Continue reading

When coding in Lua I have found the Lua Short Reference to be very handy so I thought I’d post the link here in case anyone reading would find it useful.
