X++ Function Categories and their Functions [AX 2012]

Updated: June 21, 2012

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

This topic lists every X++ built-in function by category.

The following table lists only the categories of X++ functions. Each category is described. These categories help people to understand the many functions, but the categories do not represent any formal construct in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Category

Description

Business

Functions that input financial data and calculate formulas.

Compiler Verified

(also named Intrinsic)

Functions that have their input value verified by the compiler. If the input value is not found to match any existing object in the Application Object Tree (AOT), the compiler issues an error.

The inputs to these functions must be literals, because the compiler cannot determine the value that a variable contains at run time.

Container

Functions that operate on the container data type of X++.

Convert

Functions that translate data of one type into data of another type.

Date

Functions that operate on the date data type.

Enum

Functions that operate on enum objects.

Math

Functions that perform mathematical calculations.

Miscellaneous

Functions that do not belong to any specific category.

Reflection

Functions that access the metadata about objects and return other metadata about them.

Session

Functions that change or report on the context of the current user connection.

String

Functions that operate on the str data type.

The following table lists the X++ functions that belong in each previous category.
