Let My Project Go!

Development , Dynamics AX , X++ No Comments »

Have you ever opened a project in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 to find that the window is actually underneath the top toolbar?  Did you attempt to move it by resizing, maximizing and minimizing the window like I did? Despite my numerous and various attempts to break the project window away from the toolbar I met with no success.  I have since, however, found three different ways of dealing with this situation.


The “Bottomline” for using Create!form in AX 2012

Microsoft has truly taken advantage of the many third-party products that have enhanced the usability and breadth of the Dynamics AX product over the years. Sometimes we forget that Dynamics AX was an acquired product, as many Microsoft offerings are, and in order to be successful in the early years while the product matures, ISV solutions become essential to that success. One of those products that I have a special admiration for is Bottomline Technologies’ Create!form Suite.

I have been developing software, from web applications, to iPhone apps and Windows programs, for as long as I can remember. I have used HTML, ASP, C++, C#, PHP, Objective-C, and the list goes on. Recently I joined a Microsoft Dynamics AX development team, and that meant a brand new language I’d never seen before: X++. This is a taste of what I’ve learned and a quick comparison to other languages I’ve encountered in my career.


Graduating to Microsoft Dynamics AX Development

Development , Dynamics AX , X++ 1 Comment »

Only a few short months ago, I began my career as a Microsoft Dynamics AX developer. While it did not take long to learn the basics, developing modifications for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 was and is a unique challenge. The combination of the X++ programming language, the MorphX integrated development environment (IDE), and a layered architecture make Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 an application that stands on its own despite the similarities each of its pieces may share with other software. Those similarities are an asset to the new developer, but it is the remarkable features of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 that make it interesting.
