Tools4Dax – Development tools for Dynamics Ax

There is always a gap between what the developer wants and the product offers. Though Dynamics Ax is making fast improvement in the upcoming versions in bridging thesegaps, the current version has a handful of it ūüôā .. that’s when utilities come in to help like the verticals for functional gaps.

I can remember how utilities like Tabax/Sidax from Max Belugin, Kashperuk’s Table Addon, DaxConfig by Arijit, AxAssist helped me and¬†inspired me to come up with my own utilities…But these days I miss the trend. Uust to keep it kicking and alive is another such utility from ¬†itwrkx.com “Tools4Dax”.

This utility offers quite a number of features I did try a few of them but yet to use it full fledged. Here is the list of features that Tools4Dax promises to offer and moreover it’s FREE!!!

  1. Getting AOT node information about a field in a form.
  2. Finding all unused labels.
  3. Generating common table methods like find().
  4. Generating default objects like forms.
  5. Inserting user specified class, method and headers and comments in code.
  6. Inserting commonly used statements in code.
  7. Generating project trees and adding nodes.
  8. Debugging Queries.

Also interestingly they offer the first know tool for Scrum in Dynamics Ax (SCRUM4Dax). This is a nice move but what would be interesting is if this is integrated or built around Ax TFS(Like handling workitems). I haven’t still used it as we run our scrum development on Atlassian
