Dynamics AX2012 Fact boxes

Fact boxes in Dynamics AX2012 is another very pretty feature. Before writing anything see the below screenshot of the Customer Listpage.

The area in the red box are the fact boxes, which are new in AX2012. These fact boxes provides extra information of the selected record for example the related information fact box shows the quotation, invoices of the customer selected. By this feature user don’t need to move to other form to get the information. User can get the summarized view of extra information in the fact boxes.

On AOT, there is a new node called “Part”, which holds the fact box objects. The available type of fact boxes are,

  • Form part
  • Info part
  • Cue part
I will provide more detail about how to develop fact boxes and place it to any form. Fact boxes can be placed on on listpage or forms.
Wait for my new post to know more about fact boxes. Keep reading my posts.

Different styles of Tabs in AX 2012

User Experience in Dynamics AX 2012 has really been improved and we have some more stylish way of designing the form. In AX 2012 the tabs are now can have different styles. In 2009 we have Tabs displayed in horizontal, see the below image.



This style is still available in AX2012. Now, take a look other styles of tab in AX2012

 

 

Fast Tabs

Fast tab is a new style of tabs, in this style the tabs can be expanded and collapsed. This style is useful if user wants to view the information from two or more tabs at the same time.

 

Vertical Tabs

In vertical tab style, the tabs are displayed vertically on left side. This style can be used in parameters form of modules.

Index Tab

Index tabs are used for line details information. The tabs are displayed at the bottom of the form/group. See the below screen shot.

So the tabs are now more stylish in AX2012. But how can we change the style? It looks that we need to a lot of work. However, believe me it is a piece of cake. The styles can be change by just setting the “Style”  property of Tab.

Isn’t it simple? Keep reading and visiting my blog and wait for more interesting things of AX2012.
