Producvity tip: Don’t scroll use Ctrl + G in your Editor – Dynamics Ax

September 27, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The other day as i was reviewing a code modification to a long method from my team mate he had to walk me up and down through the code scrolling.

Just then the Ctrl + G flashed in me. Yes It takes a lot less effort to type in the line number then scrolling up and down. Even if you are not sure of the line number make it a guess then it is always a few lines up or down.

Go_to_line

If you are newbie here is how you can find the line number

On AX 2009 

You can identify the line number in the status bar.

2009_LineNum

On AX 2012

Activate the toggle line number in the tool bar or identify the line number from the status bar

Ax2012_LineNum_001

Best practice

Ideally keeping best practices in mind you must right methods that have limited number of lines and break them and keep it modular.
