Lesson 2 : Forms

Forms in Microsoft Dynamics AX:

This section of Forms details Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

This section of the documentation describes how to design, build, and customize a Microsoft Dynamics AXform. A typical displays a collection of related data and often includes descriptive text, and graphic elements like lines and images. To create or modify a AXform, you use the Application Object Tree (AOT). You can also use X++ to dynamically create and display. You can design forms to do the following:

  • Enter or modify data in the database
  • Open other reports
  • Activate commands, such as Create Record or Delete Record
  • Accept and act on user input

A form is a window that you open from the Microsoft Dynamics AX client workspace that shows information and enables you to perform actions. For example, the following figure shows the form you use to view and enter information about a customer. Notice how the form has tabs, fields, and buttons that you can use to view, update, and perform actions with a customer record.
