Why Prism?

When working with C/AL, a large amount of time is spent browsing existing code. This is due to several things. Firstly, there is quite a lot of NAV code available as Microsoft lets partners view and modify all business objects of NAV. Secondly, any meaningful NAV project uses and/or modifies pre-existing NAV features. Finally, code is viewed/browsed by most roles of NAV projects. Here are some examples:

When trying to understand code, easy navigation is key to productivity. Starting from NAV 2009, C/SIDE provides "go to declaration", but in order to find usages of e.g. procedures or fields, one had to use Developer's Toolkit, which Microsoft no longer supports. Prism provides both "go to declaration" and "find usages" in one tool and is a lot faster than Developer's Toolkit.

C/SIDE is quite a claustrofobic environment to work in, and while browsing code, it is easy to miss important information such as whether a record typed parameter is temporary or not. Prism fixes that by allowing users to see all data without the need to open multiple dialogues. Additionally, Prism shows object-level dependencies which will help architects and developers to keep the design fit.

Summing up, Prism increases your productivity and helps you improve the quality of your code.

If you are not yet convinced, then take a look at the main features below and also check out the more in-depth comparison with Developer's Toolkit and C/SIDE. Then give it a try by downloading.

Design goal

Our user interface design goal is to provide overview over objects and how they interact without the need for extra mouse clicks.

In short, Prism puts important information in your face, rather than just at your fingertips.

An example of this is the object level "Used By" and "Using" functionality, which presents the dependency "neighbourhood" of the selected object immediately when the object is selected.
