How to show description of dimension when the dimension in selected in dimension display on OnHands form

This question is answered

Hi,

We have a requirement of showing description of inventcolor or inventbatch in the onHands form when ever we check the inventcolor or inventbatch checkbox in the dimensions display form.

This description is taken from inventcolor /inventbatch masters.

Display method can be used but where to add this as we need this functionality not only on OnHands form but all the forms on which dimensions display is present.

Please let me know how to proceed on this.

Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Neeharika,

    You can add the display method in the field group of your identified table.

    This will reflect the display method field on all the forms where the field group is used.

  • Hi Rachit,

    I have added the display method in inventdim and added the method to inventory dimensions group of inventdim but my requirement is it should show this display method only when inventcolor checkbox is checked in dimensions display dialog form,otherwise it should not show.

    So i wanted to know where and what logic i can add to show this display method based on the check/uncheck of the dimension checkbox in dimensions display form which is in many forms like onhand,purchlines etc...

    Please let me know if you have any idea on this.

    Thanks in advance,

  • The methods are going to differ based on what version you are on. However, the best approach is going to be to look at an existing form that allows for the customized dimension setup and see how it is implemented. For example, on Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, if you look at the InventItemPrice form, you can start looking through the chain of methods starting with the updateDesign and enableInventDimSimFields methods. For Microsoft Dynamics AX 4 or 2009, you could look at the InventTrans form and see how we use the updateDesign method there.
