How to get a list of the Tables maintained by Change Tracking in SQL

Thanks to Brent Ozar and Dave Phillips who showed us how to get a list of the Tables maintained by Change Tracking directly in MS SQL Server Management Studio. It works for both AX2012 and D365 versions.


SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ UNCOMMITTED;
GO
SELECT
   sct1.name AS CT_schema,
   sot1.name AS CT_table,
   ps1.row_count AS CT_rows,
   ps1.reserved_page_count*8./1024. AS CT_reserved_MB,
   sct2.name AS tracked_schema,
   sot2.name AS tracked_name,
   ps2.row_count AS tracked_rows,
   ps2.reserved_page_count*8./1024. AS tracked_base_table_MB,
   change_tracking_min_valid_version(sot2.object_id) AS min_valid_version
FROM sys.internal_tables it
JOIN sys.objects sot1 ON it.object_id=sot1.object_id
JOIN sys.schemas AS sct1 ON sot1.schema_id=sct1.schema_id
JOIN sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps1 ON it.object_id = ps1. object_id AND ps1.index_id in (0,1)
LEFT JOIN sys.objects sot2 ON it.parent_object_id=sot2.object_id
LEFT JOIN sys.schemas AS sct2 ON sot2.schema_id=sct2.schema_id
LEFT JOIN sys.dm_db_partition_stats ps2 ON sot2.object_id = ps2. object_id AND ps2.index_id in (0,1)
WHERE it.internal_type IN (209, 210)
order by tracked_name
;

How to activate a financial dimension

First, run the following script over your DB via SQL Management Studio.


update SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES SET VALUE = 1 where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'

select value from SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES  where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'



Then restart IIS from inside of Visual Studio.



Activate your financial dimension.



Now, run the same script but by setting the variable to zero, and restart IIS again.


update SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES SET VALUE = 0 where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'

select value from SQLSYSTEMVARIABLES  where PARM = 'CONFIGURATIONMODE'

Event handler: Get access from FormDataSource argument to other data sources and form controls

Kind a code template to accelerate our job:


    [FormDataSourceEventHandler(formDataSourceStr(<FormName>, <FormDataSourceName>), FormDataSourceEventType::Activated)]
    public static void FormDataSourceName_OnActivated(FormDataSource _sender, FormDataSourceEventArgs _e)
    {
        <FormDataSourceTable>       formDataSourceTable                 = _sender.cursor();
        FormRun                     formRun                             = _sender.formRun();
        FormDataSource              anyFormDataSource_ds                = formRun.dataSource(formDataSourceStr(<FormName>, <AnyFormDataSourceName>)) as FormDataSource;
        <AnyFormDataSourceTable>    anyFormDataSourceTable              = anyFormDataSource_ds.cursor();
        FormControl                 anyFormControl                      = formRun.design(0).controlName('AnyFormControlName');
        
        // your logic goes here, for example
        if(formDataSourceTable.enabled())
        {
            anyFormControl.visible(false);
            anyFormControl.enabled(!anyFormDataSourceTable.RecId);
        }
    }
