Deprecated: Application Hierarchy Tree (AHT) [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

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, the Application Hierarchy Tree is used to inspect types and their hierarchical structure, such as a class that extends another class.



Reason for deprecation

The Application Hierarchy Tree was based on a Help control that has been deprecated in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Replaced by another feature

Yes. The code has been rewritten, and the feature is now called the Type Hierarchy Browser. The overall user interface remains the same, but the tool is now hosted inside the MorphX environment as a multiple-document interface (MDI) child. The tool has also been extended to support table inheritance and navigation to listed element members, such as methods. Additionally, a dockable variant that is known as the Type Hierarchy Context can be used to provide contextual hierarchy information when users navigate the Microsoft Dynamics AX Application Object Tree (AOT).

For more information, see Type Hierarchy Browser and Type Hierarchy Context.
