Dynamics NAV Developer Tip: Use F9 When Viewing Global Functions to Jump Directly to the Code

If you’re using the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 (possibly an older SP1 build) or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Development Environment, you can hop directly to a specific object’s function in code by pressing the F9 key.  Older versions of NAV will either do nothing if you’re in a codeunit, or if you’re in a table, just bring up the code behind, not at a specific spot.   If you’re in an object, go to View -> C/AL Globals -> Functions.

Here is Codeunit 80, with the C/AL Globals window showing the object functions:

In this example, I want to move down to the UpdateBlanketOrderLine function.  I select the function in the list and hit F9, which takes me to the exact spot.  Cool.
