Microsoft MVP, finally !

With some days delay, I can now tell you that I have received the prestigious Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award.

There was a problem with my email address so I didn't receive the award mail from Microsoft, but now the issue was solved and I can tell you very happily that I am MVP for Dynamics AX.

I want to thank all my fellow Dynamics AX geeks and everybody I know and who know me via my blog. Thanx to all who took part in my MVP nomination.

It was always my intention to share my knowledge to increase the value of Ax(apta) to all its users. Another thing was of course that the better your name in the community, the more likely you will get answers yourself in case of a problem. So another thanx to all the people that helped me out when I needed it myself.

I will continue to share my knowledge via my blog, so make sure you keep updated !

User interface changes in SP1 for Dynamics AX 4.0

One change in the AX user interface I just found out: if a user has no access to a button, the button is not displayed anymore in the form (the button has a security key assigned and the security key access is given to a certain user group).
Before SP1, the button was just greyed out and not clickable.

Another change in the user interface: every button in a form gets a keyboard shortcut which is displayed in parentheses ().

And: there is not "Favorites" button anymore. You have to activate/deactivate the favorites window via the "View" menu.

Happy Easter with Tabax for DAX 4.0

I want to wish everybody Happy Easter and my present for you from the easter bunny is: Tabax is now working with Dynamics AX 4.0.

Max Belugin did a fabulous job in implementing a tabbed interface for Dynamics AX 3.0 and 4.0. There are 2 versions available: TabaxLite for end users and Tabax for developers and power users.

The homepage for Tabax is http://www.axaptapedia.com/Tabax but unfortunately the latest version (0.3Beta5) is not available yet. But: have an eye on it!
