Dynamics 365 Business Central: New AL Code Action for multiple layouts (Convert RDLCLayout/WordLayout/ExcelLayout to Rendering report session)

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi Readers.
The AL Language extension offers users the option to help fix issues in code. Code Actions is a Visual Studio Code feature providing the user with possible corrective actions right next to an error or warning.

If actions are available, a light bulb appears next to the error or warning. When the user clicks the light bulb (or presses Ctrl+.), a list of available code actions is presented.

There is a new feature in Business Central 2022 wave 1 (BC20), Multiple layouts of the same type in reports and report extensions.

More details: Adding multiple layouts (New rendering section for report and report extensions)

To better handle this change, Microsoft has added a new code action.
