Simple Dialog using X++ – Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Scenario: Sometimes we need a simple dialog having some fields and we do not want to use dialog form ,instead of that we can create dialog thru X++ code.

Below is the code you can use to create simple dialog.

Example Code:


//Declare dialog variables       

Dialog                  dialog;       

DialogField             fieldfDate, fieldtDate;       

FromDate _fromDate, _toDate;       


dialog = new Dialog(“Select start and end date”);       

//define fields to show on the dialog       

fieldfDate = dialog.addField(extendedTypeStr(TransDate));       

fieldtDate = dialog.addField(extendedTypeStr(TransDate));      ;       

if (dialog.closedOk())       


           //get values from the dialog fields

            _fromDate = fieldfDate.value();

            _toDate = fieldtDate.value();   


Send email thru code with Report as attachment – Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

Scenario: Send email thru X++ code with the report as attachment

Below is the code responsible for sending email thru code with the attachment

Guide lines to use below code

Just copy paste the code in the runnable class(job), perform below steps

Just replace the report contract name and paramters values

add send from and to email addresses,


//Set  variables

Filename fileName = “attFileName.pdf”; 

SrsReportRunController controller = new SrsReportRunController(); 

ReportContract contract = new ReportContract();

SRSPrintDestinationSettings settings;   

Array arrayFiles;   

System.Byte[] reportBytes = new System.Byte[0]();   

SRSProxy srsProxy;   

SRSReportRunService srsReportRunService = new SrsReportRunService();              

Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Reporting.Shared.ReportingService.ParameterValue[] parameterValueArray;   

Map reportParametersMap;

SRSReportExecutionInfo executionInfo = new SRSReportExecutionInfo();

//set the report contract parameters

contract.parm1stParameter(“firstParameter value”);

contract.parm2ndtParameter(‘2ndParamter value’);

//3rd paramter

//4th paramter

//set the report controller paramters


//set report name and desing name

controller.parmReportName(ssrsReportStr(ReportName, NewDesign));





// Provide printer settings

settings = controller.parmReportContract().parmPrintSettings();





// Below is a part of code responsible for rendering the report





reportParametersMap = srsReportRunService.createParamMapFromContract(controller.parmReportContract());       

parameterValueArray = SrsReportRunUtil::getParameterValueArray(reportParametersMap);       

srsProxy = SRSProxy::constructWithConfiguration(controller.parmReportContract().parmReportServerConfig());       

// Actual rendering to byte array       

reportBytes = srsproxy.renderReportToByteArray(controller.parmreportcontract().parmreportpath(),parameterValueArray,settings.fileFormat(),settings.deviceinfo());

// You can also convert the report Bytes into an xpp BinData object if needed       

container binData;       

Binary binaryData;       

System.IO.MemoryStream mstream = new System.IO.MemoryStream(reportBytes);       

binaryData = Binary::constructFromMemoryStream(mstream);       



            binData = binaryData.getContainer();     


System.Byte[] binData1;       

System.IO.Stream stream1;       

// Turn the Bytes into a stream       

for(int i = 0; i < conLen(binData); i++)        


            binData1 = conPeek(binData,i+1);

            stream1 = new System.IO.MemoryStream(binData1);       


//email sending settings

var mail = SysMailerFactory::getNonInteractiveMailer(); 

var messageBuilder = new SysMailerMessageBuilder();        


                .setFrom(‘’) // From email address

                .addTo(‘’) // To Email address

                .setSubject(‘Email Subject’) // Email Subject

                .setBody(‘Email Body’);        //Email Body

if (stream1 != null)       


//add attachment to the email



//send email
