- Item and Project templates for Visual Studio add in development for Microsoft Dynamics GP - Works with VS 2015, VS2017
Features & Benefits
Allows .NET developers to quickly and easily create .NET addins for Dynamics GP.
Bundled with Dynamics GP, the original .NET Visual Studio addin templates for Dynamics GP (depending on GP version) are not compatiable with modern versions of Visual Studio like 2017. Although with VS2015 it was possible to hack the templates to work see post:Visual Studio 2015 & Dynamics GP Addin Project Templates “install” hacking the files like this is not ideal.
With Visual Studio 2017 the way Visual Studio templates are installed has changed to make it more efficient, but this means the manual method shown in that blog no longer works.
Hence time to do things properly, this is a proper Visual Studio extension wrapping the original templates that is fully compatible with Visual Studio 2015, 2017.
When installed, these templates are found by navigating in Visual Studio to File>New Project, where under the Dynamics GP folder are found new project types for "Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in".
Once the new Visual Studio project is created it is possible to right click the project and "Insert New Item", where there will be a Dynamics GP option available. This option allows the creation of new GP forms in the project.
The Microsoft Dynamics GP Visual Studio Tools SDK needs to be installed on the machine to use the templates. The SDK will install the assemblies referenced.
