What's New: Best Practices for Developers in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 [AX 2012]

Updated: October 24, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The best practice checks that are enforced by the X++ compiler were updated to reflect new features that were added for this release. In addition, focus was put on security, and the existing rules that generated warnings were evaluated.

Gg865121.collapse_all(en-us,AX.60).gifNew Best Practice Checks

The following table describes the new best practice rules. The message that occurs for violations of a best practice informational, warning, or error rule occurs when you check best practices. For more information, see Best Practice Overview.

Message

Description

BPError code and label

RecID field cannot be part of the NaturalKey index.

A RecID field was set as the replacement key.

This best practice rule requires an exclusive RecID in the inheritance hierarchy. When you create a new field in a table, the best practice logic iterates through the inheritance hierarchy to make sure that the RecID and ReplacementKey indexes are exclusive.

This best practice rule supports relational application design.

This best practice rule verifies that the inherited methods return the same map.

BPErrorInheritedReturnTypeMustBeSameMap

@SYS309722

The %1 relation to the %2 table does not have an upgrade script assigned. You must assign an upgrade script or exclude it from upgrade validation.

The unit of measure table is now global. At upgrade, company-specific units are merged by using user-defined mapping. This merge requires that existing tables that have relations to the unit of measure also apply the mapping.

This best practice rule checks for relations to the unit of measure. The rule then verifies that each relation to the unit of measure is registered with an upgrade script, or that the table is marked for exclusion from the upgrade.

The following code illustrates how to register a unit of measure upgrade job:

UnitOfMeasureUpgradeExecutor::registerUpgradeJobs()

The following code illustrates how to exclude a unit of measure table:

UnitOfMeasureUpgradeValidator::registerExcludedRelations()

This best practice rule verifies that the element had the same name in the previous release of Microsoft Dynamics AX. If the name was intentionally changed, suppress the violation.

This best practice check is not new, but the message has been updated. This check has been modified because of the changes that are related to installation-specific IDs.

BPErrorObjectNameConflict

@SYS335103

The element has an origin value that is different from the origin value in a previous version of Microsoft Dynamics AX.

This best practice rule verifies that the element had the same origin value in earlier versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The origin value is the beginning value of the element. This check was added because of the changes that are related to installation-specific IDs.

BPErrorObjectOriginMismatch

@SYS335100

Element has no LegacyID assigned and was shipped in a previous version. All ID-based elements already shipped must have a LegacyID. Set Legacy ID to %1.

Gg865121.collapse_all(en-us,AX.60).gifBest Practice Checks Updated for Container Controls

Best practice checks for client forms were updated to verify the name and position for all container controls. The following table describes the changes that were made.

Message

Description

BPError code and label

Control %1 bound to table field group has name that does not match default name of %2, consequently the control requires storage and cannot be optimized

This best practice rule checks for situations in which the DataGroup property is set for a Group or Grid control, but the child control cannot be created automatically when the form is loaded. This situation occurs because the name that is bound to the table field group does not match the default name. Therefore, the control must be saved as metadata. Saving the control as metadata requires storage, and the control cannot be optimized.

BPErrorFormGroupCannotBeOptimized

@SYS68376

The form group and table group have different fields at position %1: '%2' != '%3', consequently the control requires storage and cannot be optimized

This best practice rule checks for situations in which the DataGroup property is set for the Group or Grid control, but the child control cannot be created automatically when the form is loaded. This situation occurs because the controls in the form group do not match the position in the table field group. Therefore, the position must be saved as metadata. Saving the position as metadata requires storage, and the position cannot be optimized.

BPErrorFormGroupControlDifFieldsAtPos

@SYS68382

Because of the changes to best practice rules for container controls, best practices have been removed. The following table lists the best practice checks that were removed.

Message

BPError code
