Simple UI Builder Class in SSRS Report in AX 2012

This UI Builder class is simple class with less code and less effort. UI Builder Class is needed when you want to customize your dialog which pop ups when you open a Report. UI Builder Class helps you to add run time lookups and other controls on the dialog form.
Step1 : Your Class must extends SrsReportDataContractUIBuilder
class SimpleDemoUIBuilder extends SrsReportDataContractUIBuilder
DialogField dialogEmplId;
DialogField dialogName;
boolean enable;
SimpleDemoContract contract;
}// two fields emplId and Name will reflect in the lookup in dialog form at the time of report opening.
Step2 : Override the build method
public void build()
contract = this.dataContractObject();
dialogEmplId = this.addDialogField(methodStr(SimpleDemoContract, parmEmplId),contract);
}// this method used for adding the field  which is from contract class.
Step3 : Write this below code to get lookup
private void emplIdLookup(FormStringControl emplIdlookup)
Query query = new Query();
QueryBuildDataSource qbds_EmplTable;
SysTableLookup sysTableLookup;
// Create an instance of SysTableLookup with the current calling form control.
sysTableLookup = SysTableLookup::newParameters(tableNum(FilterDemo), emplIdlookup);
// Add fields to be shown in the lookup form.
qbds_EmplTable = query.addDataSource(tableNum(FilterDemo));
// Perform the lookup
Step4 : Override this method
public void getFromDialog()
contract = this.dataContractObject();
Step5 : Override this method
public void initializeFields()
contract = this.dataContractObject();
Step6 : Override this method
public void postBuild()
dialogEmplId = this.bindInfo().getDialogField(this.dataContractObject(),methodStr(SimpleDemoContract,parmEmplId));dialogEmplId.registerOverrideMethod(methodStr(FormStringControl, lookup),
methodStr(SimpleDemoUIBuilder,emplIdLookup), this);dialogEmplId.lookupButton(2);
the Contract Class code and DP class have already been added to the blog. please check it for further reference but one important part has to be added to the contract class i.e in class declaration, the following part has to be updated.


Working with SSRS reports in Dynamics AX 2012

Microsoft Dynamics AX provides a model-based approach for creating reports by providing project templates and modeling tools that are incorporated into the Microsoft Visual Studio development environment. The reporting features provided by Microsoft Dynamics AX are tightly integrated with SQL Server Reporting Services.
Reporting Services is a server-based reporting platform that provides comprehensive reporting functionality for a variety of data sources. The reporting framework includes a set of tools for you to define reports in the Microsoft Visual Studio development environment. The report development experience takes advantage of extended SQL Server tools and components fully integrated into the Microsoft Visual Studio environment. By using the reporting APIs, you can integrate or extend data and report processing in custom applications. The following table provides links to more information on these Microsoft technologies:

Setting SysEntryPointAttribute for Services [AX 2012]

The SysEntryPointAttribute indicates what authorization checks are performed for a method that is called on the server. This attribute must be set for all service operations. For more information about how to set attributes on X++ methods, see Syntax for Attribute Classes.
The AIF Document Service Wizard automatically decorates service operations with [SysEntryPointAttribute(true)]. When you develop custom services you must use theSysEntryPointAttribute to decorate each service operation.
Setting :
The following table describes the possible values for the constructor of the SysEntryPointAttribute class.
[SysEntryPointAttribute(true)] - Indicates authorization checks are performed on the calling user for all tables accessed by the method.

[SysEntryPointAttribute(false)] - Indicates authorization checks are not performed on any tables accessed by the method.

Example :
[AifDocumentCreateAttribute, SysEntryPointAttribute(true)]
public AifEntityKeyList create(CustCustomer _custCustomer)
    return this.createList(_custCustomer);
