This four-day Development IV in Microsoft Dynamics AX course teaches the student advanced X development techniques and examines how the Microsoft Dynamics AX application is structured.
It covers both technical and application specific areas of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The technical section ensures that the student has obtained all necessary technical knowledge before progressing to the application specific section. It only covers areas that have not been included in Microsoft Dynamics AX Development classes I, II & III.
The application specific section aims at helping the student understand the more complicated processes within Microsoft Dynamics AX. The training material is useful as a reference when a refresher of the process is needed. It covers six key Microsoft Dynamics AX modules; Ledger, Trade, Inventory, Production, Project and Workflow, and goes into detail about the technical aspects of some of the main functions within each of these modules.

Course Content

Module 1: Point-of-Sale Project
This module outlines the development project that will be undertaken throughout the course. As the different technical and application specific areas are taught, the POS module is developed. This chapter introduces the initial basic design from which the student will build the module, and the students contribute to their own final design.

•Functional Design
•Technical Design
Module 2: Number Sequences
Number sequences are created and used by all programmers regularly. This module highlights the correct way to create a new number sequence and how to use a number sequence in code. It also explores the more advanced options available.

•Assign a New Number
•Continuous Number Sequences
•Format a Number
•Number Pre-Allocation
•Clean Up Process
•Form Handler
•Lab : Add Pay Id number sequence
•Lab : Use Form Handler
Module 3: PrintJobSettings
Print Job Settings are used to control and retrieve settings when writing to a printer. This module details how to use these correctly.

•Set Print Options
•Retrieve Print Options
•Use of Pack and Unpack to Store Settings
•Use of SysPrintOptions
•Args Object
•Lab : Suppress Scaling Message
•Lab : Print Job Settings
•Lab : Print the receipt to the correct printer
•Lab : Bypass Print Options
Module 4: Business Connector
When using the Microsoft Dynamics AX Business Connector, other applications can access Microsoft Dynamics AX as a .NET or COM object. This means that the application can gain access to the data and business logic of Microsoft Dynamics AX, which enables the use of such applications as front ends, to Microsoft Dynamics AX.

•Business Connector Setup and Configuration
•Business Connector Architecture
•Lab : Business Connector
Module 5: CLR Interoperability
This module shows how implement external CLR assemblies within Microsoft Dynamics AX. It also shows how to consume a web service by adding it to the AOT and calling the reference from X code.

•Reference CLR Assemblies in the AOT
•Adding Assemblies to the Global Assembly Cache or Client
•Leverage CLR Managed Code Within X Code
•InteropPermission Class
•Web service references
•Implementing a DLL
•Lab : CLR Interop
•Lab : Implementing DLL’s
Module 6: Ledger
This module helps the student understand two methods of posting transactions to the General Ledger. Due to the many varied situations that this could occur, there are a number of ways to approach this.

•Lab : Create and Post a Ledger Journal
•POS – End-of-day routine
•After completing this module, students will be able to:
•Create ledger transactions using LedgerVoucher
•Create ledger transactions using a Ledger Journal
Module 7: Trade
The most common area for modifications in Microsoft Dynamics AX is the sales and purchase updates. This module explores the FormLetter constructs, and takes the students through the code. There are also an number of journals associated with these modules and the are also be discussed.
