Additional suggestions in Editor:
When you type code in Microsoft Dynamics AX Editor, AxAssist analyzes it and offers list of suggestions.
- The list contains all available (defined) variables for current recognized element (class variables, datasources and corresponding tables, controls with property AutoDeclaration set to “Yes”).
- For operations like (“==”, “!=”, “=” and etc.) AxAssist determines type of the left operand and offers list of compatible variables.
- If you type function call, AxAssist analyzes type of current parameter and offers list of compatible variables.
This suggestion list base on AOT names. The list contains all class, table, Extended Data Type and enum names including system types.
Acronyms are short and simple abbreviations for symbols - typically the uppercase letters of a name. Type an acronym and AxAssist finds the symbol you want. Acronyms let you type code with fewer keystrokes.
"User list" allows to add customized suggestions into list. This list is sorted automatically.
Customizable hotkeys and toolbars
- You can customize up to 10 AxAssist’s Editor hotkeys by writing appropriate processing in editorHotkey() method of DEV_AxAssistHotkeys class.
- Also you can customize up to 10 AxAssist’s General hotkeys by writing appropriate processing in globalHotkey() method of DEV_AxAssistHotkeys class.
See example in How to add new hotkey.
AxAssist shows additional information of the variables under cursor in DAX Editor. If you working with unfamiliar code, AxAssist sheds light on any class, table, EDT or enum defined in currently opened element.
This behavior can be customized.
