Microsoft Dynamics AX : Introduction to X++ Programming Language

X++ is a object oriented programming language that is primarily used in MorphX  . We can use  or refer to Microsoft Dynamics AX Developer Help menu for complete information, when we develop with X++. Now let us take a look at the important features of X++  programming language.

  • With X++ usage developers can access existing Microsoft Dynamics  AX system classes that provide functionality ranging from basic I/O, XML, to changing controls in the graphical user interface at run time.
  • X++ is very much similar to very famous languages like C# and Java. This makes the developer with knowledge of these languages very easy to migrate and adapt into the MorphX development environment.
  • X++ has many many integrated SQL commands, so Microsoft Dynamics AX Dynamics AX can build complex accounting and business management systems.
  • As X++ is an object-oriented language, it can provide effiecient object-based development platform

MS DYnamics AXAPTA X++ Basics

Characteristics of X++ : The following are characteristics of X++:

Reliable : X++ have extensive compile-time checking and run-time checking. The memory management with X++ is very easy and the operator is created using new operator, there is automatic garbage collection. And one of the excellent feature is there are no explicit programmer-defined pointer data types or arithmetic. This model eliminates entire classes of programming errors. these features of X++ makes it very reliable.

Interpreted and Dynamic  : X++ comparatively has faster development cycles

Interoperable: Components in Microsoft Dynamics AX are seamlessly available to any application supporting .NET, and conversely X++ is able to consume external managed code and COM objects.

Development tools available for X++ Programming Language :

In Microsoft Dynamics AX, applications elements like classes, forms, tables, etc are organized in the Application Object Tree (AOT), The Application Object Tree is the central organized index to all application elements, displayed in graphical tree view. So customizations are developed by modifying one or more elements from the AOT.  As developers create new projects or modify existing projects, they use a series of development tools. These tools include the following:
  • X++ Editor
  • X++ Compiler
  • X++ Debugger
  • Visual Studio
  • Visual Studio Debugger

Other tools are available to help developers while writing code and for managing modifications they make to elements in the AOT. All these tools, apart from Visual Studio, are accessible from the Development Workspace.
