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:
Override the run method of the form and call the loadImage method after the call of super()
Run the form. The custom image has been loaded 🙂
