In one of my solutions I create a lot of Excel and PDF documents.  All these documents are stored in BLOB fields and then downloaded to the client computer temporary folder and opened for the user.

Every time I use the ClientTempFileName function in Codeunit 419 a file is being created in the client computer temporary folder and that file is not deleted until the Role Tailored Client is closed.

Since the user is creating temporary files his whole workday I decided that a single instance codeunit would be a better way to store information about the client and server temporary file paths.  I created codeunit 50060 and two functions; GetClientTempPath and GetServerTempPath.
[code htmlscript=”false”]OBJECT Codeunit 50060 Application Temp Path Mgt.
{
OBJECT-PROPERTIES
{
Date=27.03.12;
Time=16:11:00;
Modified=Yes;
Version List=Dynamics.is;
}
PROPERTIES
{
SingleInstance=Yes;
OnRun=BEGIN
END;

}
CODE
{
VAR
ThreeTierMgt@1200050000 : Codeunit 419;
ClientTempPath@1200050001 : Text[1024];
ServerTempPath@1200050002 : Text[1024];

PROCEDURE GetClientTempPath@1200050000() : Text[1024];
BEGIN
IF ClientTempPath = ” THEN
ClientTempPath := ThreeTierMgt.Path(ThreeTierMgt.ClientTempFileName(”,”));
EXIT(ClientTempPath);
END;

PROCEDURE GetServerTempPath@1200050001() : Text[1024];
BEGIN
IF ServerTempPath = ” THEN
ServerTempPath := ThreeTierMgt.Path(ThreeTierMgt.ServerTempFileName(”,”));
EXIT(ServerTempPath);
END;

BEGIN
END.
}
}[/code]

    Looks like the function “Path” has been removed from codeunit 419 in version 2013.

    1. The new function name is “GetDirectoryName”
