#AX7SERIES: Power of Visual Studio IDE

The #AXSERIES is an attempt to cover all the new things in the development paradigm in AX7 with a difference oriented approach between the ex and new version of the ERP making it easier for the developers to jump in the new environment

Ok I somehow managed my time to continue this blog series. I tell you what, I am not very busy actually, but still I dont know where my time goes :D

Anyways cutting the chatter, lets get straight to the point. This blog post will share some intersting things that were totally IMPOSSIBLE in AX AOT IDE thus titling this "POWER OF Visual Studio IDE"

Categorization of AOT Items

IDE provides two ways or views to see and access AOT Items

Classic view

Same old way (new color scheme due to whole new IDE though :P) illustrated as follow
AOT - Classic view

Model View

Provides a list of Models stored as default by the installation along with new models created by devs.

New option, 'Model view'

AOT in Model view

Search AOT Items

Second is the searching. Imagine how quick the access would become if you can search in the whole AOT without going to a specific node, what we call in Arabic, "Halwa" #sweat

Search in AOT - excellent!

Saving development items on local machine

Yes sir, in #AX7, you code gets saved in your local folder. You sync with AOS at later stage perhaps.
Save projects at local drive

Code windows and tabs: Beautifullll

Why I am getting so excited is due to the HUGE PLUS we will get after migrating to the VS IDE. Imagine no more scrolls and clicks in the left method list. All code for one class / table in one code window with multiple code sub tabs openable
One tab for all code belonging to a class, form or table
