AX 2009 - Run report at back ground as PDF output

Make Interactive property of report as No. It's easy make it as run for html with change  PrintMedium enum's value.

     DocuType                docuType;
    TextIo                  textIo;
    FileIOPermission        fioPermission;
    #File
    ReportRun report;
    ;

    docuType = DocuType::find("Temp");
    fileName = strfmt(@"%1My Test Report.PDF",   docuType.ArchivePath);
   
    fioPermission = new FileIOPermission(fileName ,"RW");
    fioPermission.assert();

    if(Global::isRunningOnServer())
    {
        if(WinAPIServer::fileExists(fileName))
            WINAPIServer::deleteFile(fileName);
    }
    else
    {
        if(WinAPI::fileExists(fileName))
            WINAPI::deleteFile(fileName);
    }

    report = new ReportRun(new  Args(ReportStr(KRC_InventCoverReport)));
    report.printJobSettings().setTarget(PrintMedium::File);
    report.printJobSettings().preferredTarget(PrintMedium::File);
    report.printJobSettings().format(PrintFormat::PDF);
    report.printJobSettings().fileName(fileName);
    report.query().interactive(false);
    report.run();

Axapta - Why sometimes MultiSelectionHelper and why sometimes traditional read?

That's the  traditional way to read selected records from a grid:

 c = CustTable_DS.getFirst(true);
 while (c.RecId != 0)
 {
      info(c.Name);
      c = CustTable_DS.getNext();
 }


But there's a problem with this way. If user just wants to process records at line instead of select a couple of records unfortunately that record will be missed. That's the workaround for this symptom:


c = CustTable_DS.getFirst(true);
noSelected = true;
while (c.RecId != 0)
{
     noSelected = false;
     info(c.Name);
     c = CustTable_DS.getNext();

}
if  (noSelected)
    info(CustTable.Name);

MultiSelectionHelper solves this problem:

 MultiSelectionHelper helper = MultiSelectionHelper::construct();
CustTable c;
;

helper.parmDatasource(CustTable_ds);

c = helper.getFirst();
while (c.RecId != 0)
{
      info(c.Name);
      c = helper.getNext();

}


But there is a disadvantage for MultiSelectionHelper class too. If user wants to sort records at grid and wants to process with this sorted list we have to use traditional way again  because unfortunately MultiSelectionHelper doesn't care about users sort.

Axapta - Add dimension based filter to a query

When we try to add filter based on StrFmt  like this; dimension[2] = "0001" it gives error because of brackets. I found the solution from a  forum page :

QueryBuildDataSource    qbds = query.addDataSource(tablenum(EmplTable));
...
 qbds.addRange(fieldid2Ext(fieldnum(EmplTable, Dimension),1)).value("600742");
