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.

Hello everyone,

This blog is dedicated to explore the Microsoft Business Solution DynamicsAX technically. Microsoft Dynamics AX  is a comprehensive business management solution, also called ERP-solution, for midsize and larger organizations that works like and with familiar Microsoft software. Microsoft Dynamics AX is built to make it easy to do business across locations and countries, by consolidating and standardizing processes, helping to improve productivity, providing visibility across your organization, and helping to simplify compliance. have a look at the following screen shot of DAX how it looks like.

Dynamics AX

The blog will cover “How to” series which will help the new developer to easily understand he development in AX. In-depth of knowledge of the features that DAX provide for developing and customizing the application will be posted time to time in this blog. Following are the few key things that you can implement in Dynamics AX,

1. Tables, Classes, Forms, SSRS Reports.

2. Workflow.

3. Enterprise Portal.

4. Web services using AIF.

To develop all this, Microsoft Dynamics AX provides its own Development Environment called MorphX. The programming language of Dynamics AX is “X++”. X++ uses object-oriented programming principles, such as encapsulation, inheritance, classes, objects, methods, and properties. The X++ syntax will be familiar to C# developers, and incorporates SQL data manipulation statements. For more information about X++, see this

Here is the sample code written in X++.

static void Job_LoopsWhile(Args _args)
    int nLoops = 1;
    while (nLoops <= 88)
        print nLoops;
        if ((nLoops mod 4) == 0)
        ++ nLoops;
    pause; // X++ keyword.

In MorphX, Application Object Tree (AOT) organize all the objects used to build Microsoft Dynamics AX, such as classes, tables, forms, and so on. Following is the screenshot of AOT.

Application Object Tree

Thats it for now. I hope this post introduces the basic information about the Dynamics AX. Keep in touch and wait for the next post.
