Ax 2012 EP Lookup as Tree view – Simple example

This is an example gives the basic idea for displaying the lookup as a tree view control in EP and usage of AxPopup controls in EP.

How to Develop

1. On CustTable implement the following method.

public static Array getAllRecords()
{
CustTable custTable;
DirPartyTable DirPartyTable;
int i=1;
Array customerList = new Array(Types::String);
while select AccountNum from custTable join name from DirPartyTable
where custTable.Party == DirPartyTable.RecId
{
customerList.value(i, custTable.AccountNum);
customerList.value(i+1, DirPartyTable.name);
i+=2;
}
return customerList;
}

2.  Deploy the proxies from Tools – Web development – Proxies.

3. Create the  following web part GDCustomerFilter

<%@ Control Language=”C#” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeFile=”GDCustomerFilter.ascx.cs” Inherits=”GDCustomerFilter” %>

<table>
<tr>
<td>
<asp:TextBox runat=”server” ID=”TextBoxFilterCustAccount”></asp:TextBox>
</td>
<td>

<dynamics:AxLookup ID=”AxLookup3″ runat=”server” OnLookup=”Customer_LookUp”
TargetControlId=”TextBoxFilterCustAccount” PredefinedButtons=”None” ShowFilter=”False” BorderStyle=”None”>
</dynamics:AxLookup>
<asp:Label ID=”ErrorMesg” runat=”server” Visible=”False” Font-Bold=”True”
ForeColor=”Red”></asp:Label>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

<dynamics:AxPopupParentControl ID=”TreeLookupParent” runat=”server” PopupHeight =”400″ PopupWidth=”450″ Align=”Center”>
<dynamics:AxPopupField name=”selectedName” />

</dynamics:AxPopupParentControl>

{

AxLookup lookup = e.LookupControl;
int custTableId = TableMetadata.TableNum(this.AxSession, “CustTable”);

//Create the lookup dataset – we will do a lookup in the CustTable table – To make error free. Use following code for default lookup behaviour.
using (Proxy.SysDataSetBuilder sysDataSetBuilder = Proxy.SysDataSetBuilder.constructLookupDataSet(this.AxSession.AxaptaAdapter, TableMetadata.TableNum(this.AxSession, “CustTable”)))
{

// Set the run time generated data set as the lookup data set

}
lookup.LookupDataSet.Init();
// Specify the lookup fields used
lookup.Fields.Add(AxBoundFieldFactory.Create(this.AxSession, lookup.LookupDataSetViewMetadata.ViewFields[“AccountNum”]));

// Specify the select field
lookup.SelectField = “AccountNum”;

//Here stopped default lookup behaviuor
lookup.DefaultLookupGrid.Visible = false;

//Calling our tree control page as a Popup
AxUrlMenuItem menuItem = new AxUrlMenuItem(“GDEPCustTreeView”);
string custName = TreeLookupParent.GetFieldValue(“selectedName”);

if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(custName))
{
TreeLookupParent.OpenPopup(menuItem);
}
this.TextBoxFilterCustAccount.Text = custName;
TreeLookupParent.SetFieldValue(“selectedName”, “”);

}

}

4. Create a new page in share point under the following module

Sales/Enterprise%20Portal/GDEPCustomerFilter.aspx – and host the above web part.

5. Create another web part with the name – GDEPCustTreeView

Other web part for Tree Control

<%@ Control Language=”C#” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeFile=”GDEPCustTreeView.ascx.cs” Inherits=”GDEPCustTreeView” %>
<table>
<tr>
<td>

6. Host the above web part by creating new web page under the following module Sales/Enterprise%20Portal/GDEPCustTreeView.aspx.

7. Create the Web menu item url in Ax client for page of point – 6 (above page) – Save it, right click and import page.

8. Access the page with your EP url like, as an example is eg:http://dynamicsax.contoso.com/Sales/Enterprise%20Portal/GDEPCustomerFilter.aspx

Result of the above example.

Custom Lookup for Dimensions in AX 2012 – for User Defined Dimensions

In this article, giving an example for defining the lookup for dimensions in simple way.

This example will cover only for user Defined dimensions.

For this

1)      Created a form and added two string controls.

2)      Named as

Control: Name: Dimensionlist, Auto declaration – Yes

Control: Name: DimValues

3)      Override the lookup method for Dimensionlist

public void lookup()

{

Query           query;

SysTableLookup  sysTableLookup;

super();

sysTableLookup = SysTableLookup::newParameters(tableNum(DimensionAttribute), this);

sysTableLookup.addLookupfield(fieldNum(DimensionAttribute, Name));

query = new Query();

query.addDataSource(tableNum(DimensionAttribute)).

addRange(fieldNum(DimensionAttribute, Type)).

value(queryValue(DimensionAttributeType::CustomList));

sysTableLookup.parmQuery(query);

sysTableLookup.performFormLookup();

}

4)      Override the lookup method for DimValues

public void lookup()

{

DimensionAttribute                  dimensionAttribute;

DimensionAttributeDirCategory       dimAttributeDirCategory;

Query                               query = new Query();

SysTableLookup                      sysTableLookup;

dimensionAttribute = DimensionAttribute::findByName(Dimensionlist.text());

super();

// Only user defined dimensions will have a financial tag category

if (dimensionAttribute.Type == DimensionAttributeType::CustomList)

{

select firstonly DirCategory from dimAttributeDirCategory where dimAttributeDirCategory.DimensionAttribute == dimensionAttribute.RecId;

sysTableLookup = SysTableLookup::newParameters(tableNum(DimensionFinancialTag), this);

// Add name field to be shown in the lookup form.

sysTableLookup.addLookupfield(fieldNum(DimensionFinancialTag, Value));

sysTableLookup.addLookupfield(fieldNum(DimensionFinancialTag, Description));

query = new Query();

query.addDataSource(tableNum(DimensionFinancialTag)).

addRange(fieldNum(DimensionFinancialTag, FinancialTagCategory)).

value(queryValue(dimAttributeDirCategory.DirCategory));

sysTableLookup.parmQuery(query);

// Perform the lookup.

sysTableLookup.performFormLookup();

}

}

Run:

Dim list

Dim Values

We can use the same concepts for Dimension controls on Ax 2012 SSRS reports dialog. To build the report dialog UI with dimension controls.

Report Server WMI Provider Error

The following article will be useful for two issues..

Error – 1: Report Server WMI Provider Error

Error – 2: Windows Management Instrumentation service is not running.

In my situation, suddenly report server stopped responding, after system and services are re-started.

Failed in trying to connect to Reporting services configuration manager and Reporting Services from SQL Server,

Facing the following error…

Report Server WMI Error

While searching for this issue, did not get exact answer for the above issue.

Tried to repair the report services installation by using SQL Server installation setup file, then found the following reason, in installation check list Windows Management Instrumentation service is not running.

Checked for the same in windows services, service is running, and no issues, successfully re-started also.

Still the same error during installation check list…..

With this error again started searching, got the following link as a solution to my issue.

Save The SRS Printer Settings in Table and Re-Use

In this article,

1)      We can store the printer settings of a report in the table, like in parameters table as a container type field. (Section –I)

2)      While printing the reports, we will read the settings from the parameter table and we will apply the same for report printing.  (Section – II)

static void myPrinterSettingsReport(Args _args)

{

SrsPrintDestinationSettings printSettings;

FormRun                     printSettingForm;

boolean                     ok = true;

Args                        args = new Args();

container                   myPrint;

SrsReportRun                        reportRun;

SRSPrintDestinationSettings srsPrintSettings;

//Section – I

//This we can implement on the parameters form by adding button and define this in click event

printSettings = new SrsPrintDestinationSettings();

args.caller(printSettings);

//calling printersettings form

args.name(formstr(SRSPrintDestinationSettingsForm));

printSettingForm = classfactory.formRunClass(args);

printSettingForm.init();

printSettingForm.run();

printSettingForm.wait(true);

ok = printSettingForm.closedOk();

if (ok)

{

//Retrieving printer settings to a container and this container we can store in to a table

myPrint = printSettings.pack();

}

//Section –II

reportRun = new SRSReportRun();

reportRun.reportName(“Vend.Report”);

// Set printersettings

srsPrintSettings = reportRun.printDestinationSettings();

// while generating the report we can read the printersettings from table (container field value) and pass to the following method.

srsPrintSettings.unpack(myPrint);

reportRun.showDialog(false);

reportRun.init();

reportRun.savePrinterSettings(false);

reportRun.saveReportParameters(false);

reportRun.saveReportQueries(false);

reportRun.run();

}

Ax 2012 Reports (SSRS) Print Utilities

This article gives the examples, to print the reports of Dynamics Ax 2012 (SSRS Reports), in different ways.

1)Sending the Ax report through mail.

2)Save the report as file in local computer. (example covered to save the report as .pdf file)

Mail the report

static void myJobPrintReportMail(Args _args)

{

SrsReportRun                        reportRun;

Query                               query;

SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings   SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings;

SRSPrintDestinationSettings         srsPrintSettings;

;

delete_from SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings;

reportRun = new SRSReportRun();

reportRun.reportName(“Vend.Report”);  //<ReportName>.<DesignName>

// Set printersettings

srsPrintSettings = reportRun.printDestinationSettings();

srsPrintSettings.printMediumType(SRSPrintMediumType::Email);

srsPrintSettings.emailTo(“mail@gmail.com”);

srsPrintSettings.emailAttachmentFileFormat(SRSReportFileFormat::PDF);

srsPrintSettings.emailSubject(strfmt(‘vendor report – %1’, systemdateget()));

srsPrintSettings.pack();

reportRun.showDialog(false);

reportRun.init();

reportRun.run();

}

Save the Report To PDF File

static void myJobPrintReportPDF(Args _args)

{

SrsReportRun                        reportRun;

SRSPrintDestinationSettings         srsPrintSettings;

SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings   SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings;

;

delete_from SRSReportPrintDestinationSettings;

reportRun = new SRSReportRun();

reportRun.reportName(“Vend.Report”);  //<ReportName>.<DesignName>

// Set printersettings

srsPrintSettings = reportRun.printDestinationSettings();

srsPrintSettings.overwriteFile(true);

srsPrintSettings.printMediumType(SRSPrintMediumType::File);

srsPrintSettings.fileFormat(SRSReportFileFormat::PDF);

srsPrintSettings.fileName(“D:\\Vendors.pdf”);

srsPrintSettings.pack();

reportRun.showDialog(false);

//reportRun.saveParameters();                         //For Report parameters

reportRun.init();

reportRun.run();

}

In case of Parameterized reports

If the report has parameters (Using Contract Class),

Use the following line, to read the parameters and save to the table called, SRSReportParameters

reportRun.saveParameters();

For the same parameters, provide the required values to run the report.

I have tried the example of Vendor Transactions report, with my customized version. This standard report has 4 parameters, have used same parameters and provided the values in SRSReportParameters table to run the report.

For clear idea, have a quick look in to the following picture.
