How to display/show the inventory dimensions as parameters on SSRS reports [Dynamics AX 2012, X++]

Friends,

Today, I am going to help you how to display the inventory dimensions [product dimensions, storage dimensions, Tracking dimensions] on SSRS reports as parameters. Not clear? Please see the Report parameters screen below.

All the inventory dimensions are available to be selected on report parameters below. You will see this view in almost all inventory reports and other module reports.

Well, Let me explain how to achieve this and retrieve the values in the data provider class

Its very simple, we need to make use of the contract class for this inventory dimensions view.

Standard has got a InventDimViewContract class with all the parm inventory dimensions methods and we can use these methods later in the DP classes for the selected inventory dimensions by the user on the report parameters screen.

Create an Object for InventDimViewContract in your contract class as shown below [Please note: I am using ProdPickListContract] as an example below

image

Then add a new parm method to the contract as shown below.

[DataMemberAttribute('InventDimViewContract')]

public InventDimViewContract parmInventDimViewContract(InventDimViewContract _inventDimViewContract = inventDimViewContract)

{    

    inventDimViewContract = _inventDimViewContract;

    return inventDimViewContract;

}

That’s it, by adding the above discussed,we will get the inventory dimensions on the parameters screen.

Now, the question is how do we get the selected dimensions from the user. Its simple again.

In your data provider class, mainly in processReport method, get the object of the contract class and call the parmInventDimViewContract() method, this object will help you to retrieve the inventory dimensions selected by the user by using parm methods in it. [Example : ParmViewConfigId(), parmViewInventBatchId() etc]. Please refer to screen shot below.

You can use these selected inventory dimensions values based on your requirements. The above screen shot is just an example of retrieving the values.

Get the underlying SSRS Report Query, reset query , add your own ranges and execute report [Dynamics AX 2012, X++]

Friends,

Below is the small code snippet to get the underlying query of the SSRS report, reset query, prompt the parameters form, add our own ranges and execute the report. You can customize the job as per your requirements. Below I have used CustBaseData.Report report and added my own range on customer group.

static void SR_ResetQueries_executeReport(Args _args)

{

    #define.reportName(‘CustBaseData.Report’) // report Name

    QueryBuildRange queryBuildRange;

    QueryBuildDatasource queryBuildDatasource;

    SRSReportRun srsReportRun;

    Query reportRunQuery;

    srsReportRun = new SRSReportRun(#reportName);

    srsReportRun.init();

    srsReportRun.resetQueries(); // reset the query

    reportRunQuery = srsReportRun.reportQueries().lookup(srsReportRun.currentQueryKey());

    if (srsReportRun.isInitialized() && srsReportRun.prompt()) // prompt the parameters form

    {

        queryBuildDatasource = SysQuery::findOrCreateDataSource(reportRunQuery, tablenum(CustTable));

queryBuildRange = SysQuery::findOrCreateRange(queryBuildDatasource,  fieldnum(CustTable, CustGroup));

        queryBuildRange.value(‘INT’);

        queryBuildRange.status(RangeStatus::Hidden);

        srsReportRun.saveSettings();

        srsReportRun.executeReport();

    }

}

Display SSRS report based on customer/Vendor specific language [Dynamics AX 2012]

Friends,

Common requirement is to show the reports in customer’s language [example : Quotations, sales confirmations, invoices, Free text invoices, Return order acknowledgements , Agreements,  Purchase order confirmations etc].

This was easily achievable in Dynamics AX 2009 reports by using

element.design().languageID(custConfirmJour.LanguageId); // language id

Well, how do I achieve the same thing  in AX 2012 SSRS Reports? image

Its simple , we still have one liner code only in AX 2012image

We need to use the controller classes, runPrintMgmt() method or preRunModifyContract() method which changes the contract class before report is run and am leaving this to you based on the requirements.

this.parmReportContract().parmRdlContract().parmLanguageId(custConfirmJour.Language);

Below is the screen shot for reference:image
