NAV 2013 Image Library

7 Nov

The NAV 2013 release contains a lot more images compared to NAV 2009 R2. As far as I could see, there are around 1000 action icons available. That is a huge number of images!

Lookup for images

A new feature in the NAV 2013 Development Environment is that there is a lookup button available for the image property:

This lookup form shows the complete list of all available icons:

The improvement, compared the the NAV 2009 Classic Client, is of course that you now can browse the image names. And together with the preview functionality of the Page Designer, it is possible to see the image in the menu ribbon.

However, it is still not possible to browse the images itself. You can only browse through the names. And there isn’t a search or filter either.

NAV 2013 Image Library

In my post with the NAV 2009 images all icons were available on one page. But with this load of icons, that would be too much for a single web page. And one of the remarks I got about the NAV 2009 image library was that it was not possible to search or filter the icons.

Well, for that reason I created an application with all NAV 2013 icons. You can download it from mibuso

The application is built with Microsoft .Net WPF and requires .Net Framework 4.5. This version comes as a prerequisite with NAV 2013. If you haven’t it installed yet, you can get it from the NAV 2013 installation DVD in the folder “Prerequisite Components” or download it here.

The application basically shows all Action images, alphabetically sorted.

Features are:

  • Contains Action, Departments Menu and Action Group images
  • Possible to search and filter icons
  • Hide or view the labels
  • Copy the icon name to the clipboard
  • Save the icon the a file

Hope you enjoy it!

  3. i do not know of a tool that can do that.
    The funny thing is that when you are converting Forms to Pages you have the possibility to input the tool with images that you want to related to captions (of menu items). This will apply for all occurences of this caption. That’s exactly doing what you are wanting. But no fool that can do that in one run for existing pages.

  4. Hi Arend-Jan,

    The tool looks promising. However, when i try to copy the name of an action, the application fails. (When using JIT, this is the message shown: OpenClipboard Failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800401D0 (CLIPBRD_E_CANT_OPEN) on the following entry PresentationCore.dll!System.Windows.Clipboard.Flush()

  5. Is it possible to upload custom images into this list so we can use our own icons for custom actions? Is there any other way to use custom icons/images? thanks in advance.

  6. I like the helpful information you provide for your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.

    I am moderately certain I will learn a lot of new stuff right here!
    Good luck for the next!
