View Standard Objects Code in RTC

CAL Language is used in Dynamics NAV Objects. CAL is converted into C# at Compile Time. DotNet Framework then handles the converted C# code when object is ran and the appropriate result is displayed.
NAV saves this code in table 2000000071 Object Metadata.

Blob Fields:

  • User AL Code contains the C/Al code of the object.
  • User Code contains the C# code of the same object which is generated when the object is compiled.

This would also allow you to see code of objects which are not in your License range.
Create a simple Page “RTC Standard Objects Code” in NAV 2017 to see this code in RTC. Please see below snapshots for details.
