How to use Form event ‘OnInitialized’ in Dynaics365

Hi Folk,
In Dynamics365 there are many standard events on Forms, similarly like standard methods on different node of form. Let’s see how we can use ‘OnInitialized’ event on Form Data source and use form object into a different call.

Scenario: On from ‘ProjAdjustmentSplit’ I want to enable/disable a field on certain condition. As D365 urge to not to customize ant standard object than write EventHandlers to achieve your requirement. In earlier version of AX, we simple write this logic either on Form Active method or from DS init method. Here we have to use EventHandlder for the same.  Here we will use ‘OnInitialized’ method and will write an eventHandler for the same.

Let’s take a look.
Approach: Follow below step to get this done,
Step 1: Right click on “OnInitialized’ method and select ‘Copy event handler method’

Step 2: Create a new class and paste this method. /// <summary>
     /// </summary>
     /// <param name="sender"></param>
     /// <param …

Breakpoint not hit in Visual studio [Dynamics 365]

Hi Folks,

Situation: While put a breakpoint and try to hit debug on any object which is not a part of your solution/project; Breakpoint will not hit. You will get below message.
“The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document.”

Possible reason: This is because of one of Debugger property that will not load any symbols for other than Solution/Project objects. Solution: To enable such debugging, you have to set the debugger property, Uncheck this option Load symbols only for items in the solution as shown below snaps,
Step 1: Go to Dynamics 365 menu in Visual studio and select option

Step 2: Choose Debugging option from list and uncheck the Load symbols only for items in the solution

Now try to run again, this time breakpoint should hit as expected.

Merger two LedgerDimension in Dynamics 365

This is rough code, please feel free to copy and update it according to your requirement.

New classes in Dynamics 365 for Dimensions

Hi Folks,
Since many days, I was trying to perform few logics over LedgerDimensions and DefaultDimensions, like merge and replace etc. In AX2012 its handled by DiemsionDefaultingService class that having many static method to help us to play around ledger/default dimensions.
But in Dynamics 365 FO , this class is deprecated, and MS introduce few more classes to help us with these requirements. Here are few name of classes and method that can be used.

1. LedgerDimensionFacade : This class used for fixed LedgerDimension, we have many static methods here, like Merge Dimension, getdefaultDimension and many more, refer below image.

2. LedgerDimensionDefaultFacade: This class will help us to perform action over default dimension. Like Merge specify default dimension into single default dimension, replace attribute value etc.
Please refer below image, 

Both classed having almost same method that is available in AX with DiemsionDefaultingService class.

How to rename an Object in VisualStudio[Dynamics365/AX7]

Hi Folks,
Many times we need to duplicate an standard object and do the required changes and system gives warning while rename. Same caused error during project build.
Problem: While renaming any object in Visual studio project system throw below warning
“Some of the files you are renaming or moving will be located outside of the project's binding root. The item(s) <objectName>.xml will not be source controlled if you continue with this rename.”

If you just continue with change , you may get errors while project/solution build.
Possible reason: If you are using TFS and this new object are not added to source code you’' will get this error.
Suggest Solution: Add this new object in Source control by right click on object and select “Add file  to source control”

Now you should be able to rename it.
This works for me perfectly. If you got some other solution to fix this issue plz keep share your feedback or links to other posts.

How to add Standard Address fields into a new table [Dynamics365/AX7]

Hi Folks,

Its been a long time to write any new post on AX. Here I’m back today. Since few months we all are trying the new Dynamics 365 and its amazing new features in D365.

In this post we will see how to add new address fields in table using Table mapping.

[Note: In D365 we have object extension functionality to customize standard objects. But we don't have this option for Maps. This post will also help you to understand the alternative for the same by using table Mapping section.]

Requirement: We need to add all standard address fields in table followed by adding a new tab for address in respective from.

Proposed solution: We can achieve this by adding a single field rather than add multiple fields in table. Perform below steps to get this done,

1. Add a new field in table, EDT type “LogisticsLocationRecId”, rename it  as “Location”.

2. Now add a new Foreign key relation for “LogisticPostalAddress”  table and set its property as below snap shot,

3. Add a new map in mapping …
