Tabax 0.2.11

The main new feature is the new button "Edit current field". Open, say, ledger accounts form from main menu, select "Tax group" field and click this button.

You will see AOT for StringEdit:Tax_TaxGroup.

I think this button fill be helpful for developers and consultants to explore axapta functionality.

AxPath is coming: Sidax 0.4 beta 0 + Tabax 0.2.10

download tabax | download sidax

There is the first AxPath implementation. AxPath let you store a link for some record in database or an AOT item in the form of URI and then send it to a collegue or open it. So, for example you can copy link to the some purchase order, send it to colleague and it will be opened by colleague (so purchase orders form is opened and positioned at specific order).

Now Tabax, and Sidax support this technique. I am planning integration of AxPath scheme in the system letting AxPath links to be embedded in the webpages, mails, etc.

so, in Sidax:

  • you can copy AxPath of the menu item in main menu with right click
  • you can navigate AxPath via "go component"

in Tabax:
  • AxPath:
    • when pressing the "Copy" button it copies axpath of the current record to the clipboard
    • when pressing the «Ctrl+Shift+Copy» it copies AOT items, currently selected
    • if you insert axpath to the input box it navigates the path given

  • now tabs are switched correctly under AX3KR3
  • X++ calculator in the input box:
    • enter ?<X++ expression> and press Enter to evaluate an expression
    • enter ?<X++ statement> and press Enter to run a statement

I am going to implement "favorits" in the sidax based on AxPath

Sidax 0.3.7 beta 12

Axapta hangs when trying to exit from the thin client. Added workaround for this bug. Axapta will still hang if you login and then immediately close it, but I think this is a very rare case.


AxUnit2 updated

Some errors fixed, Tabax integration.
