Date manipulation through X++ code [AX 2012]

Hi Folks,

I come though a requirement where I need to manipulate on “FromDate” and “ToDate”. When user enter these value through a dialog box, user can select any day from month for eg.

From Date: June 6, 2015
To Date: August 20, 2015


And to perform some action on Financial stuff we may need to consider the whole month like
from June 1, 2015 to August 31, 2015

You can fetch this month range in your x++ code, here is a sample code, try it…
static void theAxapta_MonthRange(Args _args)
    DialogField                     dialogStartDate, dialogEndDate;
    Dialog                          dialog = new Dialog("Month range");
    TransDate                       fromDate, todate;

    dialogStartDate = dialog.addField(extendedTypeStr(TransDate));
    dialogEndDate   = dialog.addField(extendedTypeStr(TransDate));
    dialogStartDate.label("From Date");
    dialogEndDate.label("To Date");
        fromDate = mkDate(1, mthOfYr(dialogStartDate.value()), year(dialogStartDate.value()));
        toDate   = (mkDate(1, (mthOfYr(dialogEndDate.value()) + 1), year(dialogEndDate.value())) - 1);
        info(strFmt("Start Month %1", fromDate));
        info(strFmt("End Month %1", todate));
