How D365FO debugging really looks like

BTW, jokes aside, where can I see the TTS level during debugging?

Enum extensions case in D365

Added two new values to an enum in the same model but in two different extensions.

The first one is looped perfectly (see code snippet below), and nothing but an index for the second. However, its value is present in a combobox.

final public class CDPSysPolicyParametersForm_9180_Extension
    public void populateTree()
        DictEnum          policyRuleTypeEnum;
        int               i;
        policyRuleTypeEnum = new DictEnum(enumNum(SysPolicyRuleTypeEnum));

        for(i = 0; i < policyRuleTypeEnum.values(); i++)
            str sym = policyRuleTypeEnum.value2Symbol(i);
            info(strFmt("%1 %2 %3", i, policyRuleTypeEnum.value2Name(i), sym));

        next populateTree();
Already built and syncrhonized the whole world. What else can it be?

Take a look from the SQL side.

There are some old values that I created before but deleted later. All of them are still there.

I had to delete these unsynced values manually from SQL, then added needed values in AOT, and synched DB.

In fact, DB sync is triggered if you have some changes in tables/views only.
Now it is correctly recreated.

BTW there are two good articles about the subject

 1) Extensible enums: Breaking change for .NET libraries that you need to be aware of
 2) Development tutorial: Extensible base enumerations in Microsoft Dynamics AX 7

Operating with system defined buttons in form Action pane

Say, we have to reference Edit button.

For this we use the macro #define.SystemDefinedViewEditButton('SystemDefinedViewEditButton')

The whole list is present in SysSystemDefinedButtons macro

Code snippet for your active method in name_DS

int active()
            ret = super();
         < ... >
            FormCommandButtonControl editButton = element.control(element.controlId(#SystemDefinedViewEditButton)) as FormCommandButtonControl;
            return ret;

Hidden Rules form part in Policy form

Just discovered that the Policy rules form part is not properly shown in the Policy form.

If you want to get it back, create an extension to SysPolicyListPage and change Part location to Auto

Once it is done, this part will be visible for all kinds of policies, e.g. Purchasing etc.
