3. Set the report caption (it will appear in dialog).

4. The Method initFromCaller.
Method initFromCaller  Basicllt this form will call whenever you call this menu item from FORM. 

public void initFromCaller(Args _args)
{
InventJournalTable inventJournalTable;
QueryBuildDataSource qbds;
;
if (_args.caller())
{
if (! _args.record().recId)
   throw error(strfmt("@SYS22338",funcname()));
switch (_args.dataset())
{
case tablenum(InventJournalTable):

inventJournalTable = _args.record();
if (inventJournalTable.journalType != InventJournalType::Transfer)
throw error(strfmt("@SYS23396",funcname()));

break;
default:
throw error(strfmt("@SYS23396",funcname()));
}
}

if (true || inventJournalTable.journalId)
{
qbds = element.query().dataSourceTable(tablenum(InventJournalTrans));
SysQuery::findOrCreateRange(qbds, fieldnum(InventJournalTrans, journalId)).value(inventJournalTable.journalId);
SysQuery::findOrCreateRange(qbds, fieldnum(InventJournalTrans, journalType)).value(queryValue(InventJournalType::Transfer));
}
}

Enjoy Guys......

Sending mail from AX using .NET Framework

Sending mail from AX using .NET Framework

Sometimes happen that SysMailer class (using CDO) is not the right solution for sending mails with attachments. There is a little sample of X++ Job that is using System.Net.Mail namespace to achieve same.


static void JobNETSendMail(Args _args)
{
    System.Net.Mail.MailMessage             mailMessage;
    System.Net.Mail.Attachment              attachment;
    System.Net.Mail.AttachmentCollection    attachementCollection;
    System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient              smtpClient;
    System.Net.Mail.MailAddress             mailAddressFrom;
    System.Net.Mail.MailAddress             mailAddressTo;
    str                                     strBody;
    str                                     strSMTPServer;
    str                                     strFileName;
    FileIOPermission                        perm;
    ;

    // preparing parameters
    mailAddressFrom = new System.Net.Mail.MailAddres"test@localmail.com", "");
    mailAddressTo = new  System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("admin@localmail.com","");
    strBody = "There is a email body";
    strSMTPServer = "MailServerName";
    
    // preparing mail with body, subject, from, to.
    mailMessage = new System.Net.Mail.MailMessage(mailAddressFrom, mailAddressTo);
    mailmessage.set_Subject("There is a email subject");
    mailmessage.set_Body(strBody);
    attachementCollection = mailMessage.get_Attachments();

    strFileName = "C:\\path\\filename";
    // assert permision
    perm = new FileIOPermission(strFileName,'w');
    perm.assert();

    // attaching file to that email.
    attachment = new System.Net.Mail.Attachment(strFileName);
    attachementCollection.Add(attachment);
    smtpClient = new System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient(strSMTPServer);
    smtpClient.Send(mailmessage);
    
    // release permision
    CodeAccessPermission::revertAssert();
}

Open any object from code editor to in AOT node(Editor script)

I have posted a editor script method earlier that can open and browse table for code editor.using below code developer will have ease of opening any object from AX code editor to AOT node.



TO USE THIS CODE COPY AND PASTE THE METHOD IN EDITOR SCRIPT CLASS

void addIns_OpenInAOT(Editor e)
{
    #AOT
    TreeNode        treeNode;
    FreeText        selectedLine;

How to Restrict Multiple Time login of a same user

X++ Code to restrict user login multiple times in ax2009

Copy Paste the Following Code in startupPost method of info class in AOT

void startupPost()
{
// To restrict user login form second login
xSession session;
SysClientSessions SysClientSessions;
UserId currentUserId;
int counter;
;
currentUserId = curUserId();
if(currentUserId!="Admin")// Allow Admin User to login multiple time
{
while select SysClientSessions
where SysClientSessions.userId == currentUserId &&
SysClientSessions.Status == 1 // 1 : Login 0 : Logout
{
session = new xSession(SysClientSessions.SessionId, true);
if (session && session.userId())
{
counter++;
}
}
if(counter>=2)
{
Box::stop("Already Logged-in : The same user id can't log in twice.");
infolog.shutDown(true);
}
}
}

Please take backup of your application before copying code
