Adding Favorites programmatically

In Dynamics Ax 4.0, each user can have a Favorites pane. Normally, you can add a menu item to the Favorites pane by dragging and dropping it. I created a small job where you can see how to add a form programmatically to the Favorites pane. (The job has been created using some standard methods).

The job can be downloaded from Axaptapedia here: http://www.axaptapedia.com/images/6/63/Job_hw_addToFavorites.xpo

The Axaptapedia page for this is: http://www.axaptapedia.com/Adding_Favorites_programmatically

Next steps can be: adding a query to the favorite via X++, add a button on each form to add it to favorites

AOT search within search results

One of the things that happen to you when you take an active part in a community is that you actually build up a community. This way, I get emails with questions about Axapta but also people send me their projects to test them.

So, a guy called Jonathan Watkins asked me if I can test a tool called "AOT Search extended" for him. Well I did now so I will share it with you all.

What does the tool do? When you search something in AOT, you get a load of results. And what if you then subsequently want to search inside these results?
That's where the tool can help you. Just before you do your initial search, click on "Save results". After the search has finished (or you stopped it), click on "New search" and it will ask you if you want to search within your previous results.
Cute, isn't it? The tool has been made in Axapta 3.0 SP4, but will also work in other 3.0 versions.

I have created a page in Axaptapedia for it, you can find it here: http://www.axaptapedia.com/AOT_Search_within_search_results

You can also download the tool directly from here: http://www.geocities.com/axaptafreak/Files/aot_searchextended.zip

And, as always: my apologies if you cannot download the file. I have no webspace so I have to put it on my Yahoo Geocities account which has limited traffic allowance.
