This section of the documentation describes how to design, build, and customize a Microsoft Dynamics AX form. A typical form displays a collection of related data and often includes descriptive text, and graphic elements like lines and images. To create or modify a form, you use the Application Object Tree (AOT). You can also use X++ to dynamically create and display a form. You can design forms to do the following:

  • Enter or modify data in the database

  • Open other forms or reports

  • Activate commands, such as Create Record or Delete Record

  • Accept and act on user input
