Using custom Image resource in Dynamics AX 2012

Dynamics AX 2012 allows developers to include their custom images in form‘s or report’s. However, to use this a little bit tweaking is needed. This blog will go through the steps to use a custom image in an AX form.

Adding custom resource to AOT:

First go to AOT à Resources. Right click resources node and select ‘Create from file’. Browse and select the custom resource. Rename the resource to ImageResource. The custom resource has been added.

Using the custom resource:

Create a New dynamics AX form, let say CutomResourceDemo. Add a window control in the form and rename it to CustomImage. Set its AutoDeclaration property to Yes.

Create a new method loadImage at the form methods node and write the following code:

res1

Override the run method of the form and call the loadImage method after the call of super()

res2

Run the form. The custom image has been loaded 🙂
