2. Drilling down to the AOT from an open form

As part of my series on “Things new X++ Developers Should know”. I have been writing a few basic howtos for new X++ Developers.

Today we cover how to determine the AOT name of the current form that you are accessing and edit it directly without having to go through the tedious process of navigating/searching in the AOT. This can be very useful in increasing productivity as well as debugging functionality

1. From any form in AX right click on an control.
2. Click “Personalise”.
Personalise

 

 

3. Select the “Information” tab.
4. The AOT name of the form is visible under “Form name”.
5. Click Edit to acess the form in the AOT.

Note: This won’t work for forms created in code like dialogs etc..
