Splitters in Dynamics AX [X++, SysFormSplitter_Y, SysFormSplitter_YBottomBound]

Friends, today we will learn how to add splitters to the form.
There are 3 types of splitters : X -axis, Y-axis and Y-axis BottomBound
Classes which help for adding splitters are listed below.

  • SysFormSplitter_X
  • SysFormSplitter_Y
  • SysFormSplitter_YBottomBound
  • Splitter is actually a group control but by setting up some properties on the group control will make it look like a thin line as a seperator.

    Let us learn all these splitters one by one with an example.. Follow me to learn splitters..

    Y_Axis splitter:
    Create a new form with name SR_YAxisSplitter and add 3 new controls to it.
    Add a stringEdit control “Name” and set the autodeclaration property as “Yes”
    Add a group control “GroupSplitter” and set the proeprties as shown in the image below.

    Add another string edit control “Organization” .
    Now, your form should like the screen shot below

    Modify the classdeclaration method of the form by creating an object of SysFormSplitter_Y as shown below

    public class FormRun extends ObjectRun
    {
    SysFormSplitter_Y _formSplitter;
    }

    Override the init() method of the form and instantiate the SysFormSplitter_Y class as shown below.

    void init()
    {
    super();

    _formSplitter = new SysFormSplitter_Y(groupSplitter,Name,element);
    }

    Override 3 methods mouseup(), mousedown() and mousemove() methods as shown below


    ______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseUp(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseUp(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);
    }
    _______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseMove(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseMove(x,y,button,ctrl,shift);
    }
    _______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseDown(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseDown(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);
    }
    _______________________________________________________________________

    There you go.. We are done with the development. Now let’s see how your form look like with your newly created splitter. Below is the screen shot.

    X_Axis splitter:
    Let us learn now how to create X -Axis splitters on the form
    Create a new form by name SR_XAxisSplitter as shown below.
    Add first group control and set the following properties as shown below
    Height : ColumnHeight
    Widht : ColumnWidth
    Columns: 3
    FrameType : None
    Below is the screen shot for your reference : Columns property – set to 3

    Inside the group add 3 controls
    1) StringEdit control “Name” [Autodeclaration property – Yes]
    2)GroupSpliiter Control
    3)ListView control with properties [Height – ColumnHeight and width as ColumnWidth]

    Set the following properties on the GroupSplitter control

    Next, paste the following code in the classdeclaration method

    public class FormRun extends ObjectRun
    {
    SysFormSplitter_X _formSplitter;
    }

    Override the init() method and add the below code

    void init()
    {
    super();

    _formSplitter = new SysFormSplitter_X(groupSplitter,Name);
    }

    Override mouseup, mousemove and mousedown method on the groupsplitter control and add the below code

    ______________________________________________________________________

    int mouseUp(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseUp(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);
    }
    ______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseMove(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseMove(x,y,button,ctrl,shift);
    }
    ______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseDown(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;

    ret = super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    Return _formSplitter.mouseDown(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);
    }
    ______________________________________________________________________

    That’s it..we are done with X-Axis splitter as well. Now let’s see how the form looks like. Below is the screen shot

    Y_Axis BottomBound:
    Y-Axis button bound will be used in ListPages forms as a splitter between the grids and any other controls
    Below the screenshot – of newly created ListPage. Follow the properties and addition of controls as shown below.

    Next, paste the below code in class declaration method

    public class FormRun extends ObjectRun
    {
    SysFormSplitter_YBottomBound splitter;
    }

    Override the init() method and paste the following code

    public void init()
    {
    #define.startupHeight(175);

    super();
    splitter = new SysFormSplitter_YBottomBound(grid, ctrlSplitVertical, previewPane, this, #startupHeight);

    }
    Override the mouseup, mousemove, mousedown methods on the groupsplitter control and paste the below code

    int mouseUp(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;
    ;

    super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    ret = splitter.mouseUp(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    return ret;
    }
    ______________________________________________________________________
    int mouseMove(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;
    ;

    super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    ret = splitter.mouseMove(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    return ret;
    }
    _____________________________________________________________________
    int mouseDown(int x, int y, int button, boolean ctrl, boolean shift)
    {
    int ret;
    ;

    super(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    ret = splitter.mouseDown(x, y, button, ctrl, shift);

    return ret;
    }
    ______________________________________________________________________

    That’s it pals..we are done with the splitter on the list pages. Below is how your listpage look now.
