Form Data Source Field Properties [AX 2012]

Updated: June 24, 2011

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

Form data source field properties are described in the following table.

NoteNote

It is best practice to use the properties on data source fields rather than the properties on the controls. This ensures that all occurrences of the field on the form are displayed consistently and helps make upgrades easier.

Property

Description

New in this version of
 Microsoft Dynamics AX

AllowAdd

Specify whether you can use personalization to add a field to a form.

The default value is Restricted. You use Restricted when you want the field to be added as a read-only field on the form.

If AllowAdd is set to Yes, you can use personalization to add the field to the form.

NoteNote
The container control where the field is to be added must have the AllowUserSetup property set to Yes.

AllowEdit

Specify whether you can modify the value of the field.

DataField

Specify the name of the field from the table in the form data source.

AX 2012

Enabled

Allows controls that display in the field to receive focus.

The default value is Yes. If set to No, controls bound to this field are disabled.

TipTip
If a field is used in several places on a form, set the Enabled property on the data source instead setting it on every control.

Mandatory

Informs the user that this field must be completed. If set to Yes, the field has a red wavy line in the user interface.

Skip

Determines whether controls bound to the field are skipped when the TAB key is used to navigate the form.

The default value is No.

TipTip
Even if the Skip property is set to Yes, users can still select the control by using the mouse pointer. You can also set the Skip property on a specific control.

Visible

Determines whether controls bound to the field are visible.

The default value is Yes.

TipTip
You cannot use the Visible property on controls to enforce access restrictions—the user can change the visibility for the controls in the Form Setup dialog.
