How to: Create a Primary List Page

Dynamics AX 2009

A Microsoft Dynamics AX list page is a specialized type of form. To create a list page, use the Application Object Tree (AOT) to create a new form and set the WindowType property of the form to ListPage. The following procedure describes how to use the AOT to create a primary list page.

To create a list page form

  1. In the AOT, right-click the Forms node, and then click New Form. The Forms node expands and displays a new form.

  2. Right-click the new form node,and then click Properties. In the Properties window, enter a unique name for the list page. To save the list page name, press ENTER.

    NoteNote

    To make it easier to identify the list page in the AOT, append ListPage to the form name. For example, if you create a list page that displays customer information, name the list page form CustomerListPage.


  3. To view the Design properties of the form, expand the new form node, and then expand Designs. Right-click the Design node and select Properties. While most form properties can use the default value, you must provide the following property values.

    Value

    WindowType

  4. To save changes, right-click the form, and then click Save.

    NoteNote

    To view the form, right-click the form name, and then click Open. At this time, the list page is empty and appears as a blank form in the content area.


  5. After creating the basic form, you want to add a data source. For more information about list page data sources, see How to: Add a Data Source to a List Page.
