It is possible to modify the ApplicationArea property on page extension objects

When i read the documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/developer/properties/devenv-page-property-overview) it says that it should available to

- Page object
- Field control
- Part control
- Action

But it is not allowed to modify the application area property of the page object in extensions (https://github.com/microsoft/AL/issues/5271#issuecomment-532554604)

Please let us modify the App.Area property of the page object.

Hello,

If "ApplicationArea" is added to page extension, I think the "UsageCategory" is also required to be modified when you extend a page

On the other hand, when yo extend a page, the property "AdditionalSearchTerms" allow to add aditional term form search in BC.

Whay not add two new propierties in page extension to alow add adicional app areas to the base app, instead of use Application Area of base page?

Hi,
In my case I need to use standard pages in my Application Area. For that a can add a new Application Area to the standard when I extend de page.
See more details in (https://github.com/microsoft/AL/issues/6131) Page Extension: allow to modify ApplicationArea of source page

Hello,

we too having the problem about to implement a new price calculation method using the new interface (v16).

The page has notes and that notes clearly state "ApplicationArea and UsageCategory properties should be enabled by an extension".

How can I set ApplicationArea and UsageCategory on that page if this feature has not been implemented yet?

Thanks in advance
Manfred

Hi,

We have the same problem as Ariestya. The note of page 70006 said "ApplicationArea and UsageCategory properties should be enabled by an extension".

Thank you,

Hi,

I second this. I was about to implement a new price calculation method using the new interface (v16), until I stumbled into page 7006 "Price Calculation Setup" that was supposed to be shown by my extension. The page has notes and that notes clearly state "ApplicationArea and UsageCategory properties should be enabled by an extension".

How can I set ApplicationArea and UsageCategory on that page if this feature has not been implemented yet?

Thank you for your attention.
