Business value

The Page Inspector is a valuable tool for power users, consultants, and developers to learn about the structure of a page, including the page type, full record information, extensions that affect the page, and filters that are currently active.

Feature details

With this update, the inspection pane now displays valuable record information for pages that are implemented to use temporary tables. Information about the current record is displayed in a consistent way and is not different from inspecting pages that use physical source tables.

Additionally, the usability of the pane has been improved:

  • The inspection pane is now significantly faster at refreshing when you choose to inspect a different record or page part.
  • A visual cue indicates that the pane has completed refreshing and that data in the pane now reflects the currently selected record.

Try it now

Experience the improved inspector by signing in to Business Central and navigating to a page using a temporary table, such as the Web Services page. You can then use the Ctrl+Alt+F1 shortcut to open the inspection pane.
