Updated: February 7, 2011
Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012
In the Variables window in the Microsoft Dynamics AX debugger, you can observe the values of the variables changing as you traverse through the code. The Variables window displays the values of the variables that are within the current scope. When the value of a variable has changed between stops, it is highlighted in a different color in the variables window to make it easy to identify the changes.
You can also modify the value of a variable in the Variables window. If a single line in the Variables window holds a compound object, you can click the plus sign (+) to expand it.
Microsoft Dynamics AX must be in break mode for you to modify variable values. Also, the maximum tooltip length for these values is 1,024 characters. Anything longer than this is truncated.
The Globals view displays the following classes:
The variables in these classes are global variables and are always instantiated. These global classes are derived from kernel classes. Any classes that you create in the Application Object Tree (AOT) do not appear in this view, but are shown in the Variables window and Locals view.
