How to: Add a Drill Through Action on a Report [AX 2012]

MSDN does document how to add a drill through action on a report.

However I feel it is quite invasive and it could be done a lot cleaner without touching too many standard objects.

Open up the SRSDrillThroughCommon class.

Change the method GetDrillThroughUrl from a protected method to a public method.


Then from the business logic class write a drill through method like so.

    [DataMethod(), PermissionSet(SecurityAction.Assert, Name = "FullTrust")]
    public static string ToTermOfPayment(string reportContext, string termOfPayment)
        const string PaymTermMenuItem = "PaymTerm";
        const string PaymentTable = "Payment";
        const string PaymTermIdField = "PaymTermId";
        return DrillThroughCommonHelper.GetDrillthroughUrl(reportContext, PaymTermMenuItem, string.Empty, PaymentTable, PaymTermIdField, termOfPayment);

AX - How to use Map and MapEnumerator

Similar to Set class, Map class allows you to associate one value (the key) with another value. Both the key and value can be any valid X++ type, including objects. The types of the key and the value are specified in the declaration of the map. The way in which maps are implemented means that access to the values is very fast.
Below is a sample code that sets and retrieves values from a map.
static void checkItemNameAliasDuplicate(Args _args) { inventTable inventTable; Map map; MapEnumerator mapEnumerator; NameAlias nameAlias; int counter = 0; ; map = new Map(Types::String, Types::Integer); //store into map while select inventTable { nameAlias = inventTable.NameAlias; if (!map.exists(nameAlias)) { map.insert(nameAlias, 1); } else { map.insert(nameAlias, map.lookup(nameAlias) + 1); } } //retrieve from…

AX - How to use Set and SetEnumerator

The Set class is used for the storage and retrieval of data from a collection in which the values of the elements contained are unique and serve as the key values according to which the data is automatically ordered.
You can create a set of primitive data types or complex data types such as a Class, Record or Container. Below is sample of a set of records.
static void _Set(Args _args) {     CustTable       custTable;     Set             set = new Set(Types::Record);     SetEnumerator   setEnumerator;     ;     while select custTable     {         if (custTable && !         {             set.add(custTable);         }     }     if (!set.empty())     {         setEnumerator = set.getEnumerator();         setEnumerator.reset();         while (setEnumerator.moveNext())         {             custTable = setEnumerator.current();             info(strfmt("Customer: %1",custTable.AccountNum));         }     } }
