How to Merge Two Brands: Successful M&A

Requirement – The requirement is to combine and merging images to a single image using X++ & C# Dot Net Libraries in Microsoft Dynamics 365 finance and operation.

Classes & Libraries –

System.Drawing.Bitmap
System.Drawing.Image
System.Drawing.Graphics
System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat
System.Drawing.Color

Sample Code –

str jpg1 = @”c:\images.jpeg”;
str jpg2 = @”c:\images2.jpeg”;
str jpg3 = @”c:\image3.jpg”;

System.Drawing.Image img1 = System.Drawing.Image::FromFile(jpg1);
System.Drawing.Image img2 = System.Drawing.Image::FromFile(jpg2);

int width = img1.Width + img2.Width;
int height = System.Math::Max(img1.Height, img2.Height);

System.Drawing.Bitmap img3 = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(width, height);

System.Drawing.Graphics g = System.Drawing.Graphics::FromImage(img3);

g.Clear(System.Drawing.Color::Black);
g.DrawImage(img1, new Point(0, 0));

D365 FO : Developing Business Events with X++ from scratch

Microsoft Dynamics AX/D365 F&O Technical blog

Business events provide a mechanism that allow external system receives notifications from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and operations. For example – When you are posting a purchase invoice then you can send notifications/ payload / message to an external system.

You can use existing standard business events which are available in the D365 FO or you can also develop and customize new business events as per your need.

There are 2 ways you can consume business events . 1. Power automate (Microsoft Flow) 2. Azure messaging services.

Scenario – In this example, I am going to show you how we can develop a new custom business event from scratch. In my scenario, business event in D365 FO should be triggered when a user is posting purchase invoice in Microsoft dynamics 365 for finance and operations.

There a 2 standard and base classes which i will use to develop custom business events –

  1. BusinessEventsContract ( Use for developing/defining payload message)
  2. BusinessEventsBase ( Use for triggering custom business event)

Create a PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract class

[DataContract]
class PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract extends BusinessEventsContract
{
private VendAccount vendAccount;
private PurchId purchid;
private InvoiceId invoiceId;

private void initialize(VendInvoiceJour _vendInvoiceJour)
{
vendAccount = _vendInvoiceJour.OrderAccount;
purchid = _vendInvoiceJour.PurchId;
invoiceId = _vendInvoiceJour.InvoiceId;
}

public static PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract newFromVendInvoiceJour(VendInvoiceJour _vendInvoiceJour)
{
PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract contract = new PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract();
contract.initialize(_vendInvoiceJour);
return contract;
}

private void new()
{
}

[DataMember(‘VendAccount’), BusinessEventsDataMember(‘VendAccount’)]
public vendAccount parmvendAccount(vendAccount _vendAccount = vendAccount)
{
vendAccount = _vendAccount;
return vendAccount;
}

[DataMember(‘PurchId’), BusinessEventsDataMember(“PurchId”)]
public PurchId parmPurchId(PurchId _purchId = purchId)
{
purchId = _purchId;
return purchId;
}

[DataMember(‘InvoiceId’), BusinessEventsDataMember(“InvoiceId”)]
public InvoiceId parmInvoiceId(InvoiceId _invoiceId = invoiceId)
{
invoiceId = _invoiceId;
return invoiceId;
}

}

Create a PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent class

[BusinessEvents(classStr(PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract),
“Custom Vendor Invoice Post Business Event”,
“This business event is triggering during the time purchase invoice posting”,ModuleAxapta::AccountsPayable)]
class PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent extends BusinessEventsBase
{
private VendInvoiceJour vendInvoiceJour;

static public PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent newFromVendInvoiceJour(VendInvoiceJour _vendInvoiceJour)
{
PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent businessEvent = new PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent();

businessEvent.parmVendInvoiceJour(_vendInvoiceJour);
return businessEvent;
}

private VendInvoiceJour parmVendInvoiceJour(VendInvoiceJour _vendInvoiceJour = vendInvoiceJour)
{
vendInvoiceJour = _vendInvoiceJour;
return vendInvoiceJour;
}

private void new()
{
}

[Wrappable(true), Replaceable(true)]
public BusinessEventsContract buildContract()
{
return PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEventContract::newFromVendInvoiceJour(vendInvoiceJour);
}

}

you must add below block of code in purchase invoice posting routine class. Also business must be activated or enabled in that company. Business event will trigger when purchase invoice posting will take place.

VendInvoiceJour vendInvoiceJour = this; // vendInvoiceJour buffer

if(BusinessEventsConfigurationReader::isBusinessEventEnabled(classStr(PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent)))
{
PAAPurchInvoiceJournalPostBusinessEvent::newFromVendInvoiceJour(this).send () ;

}

Build your project solution and navigate to path -[System administration–> Setup –> Business Events –> Business Events Catalog] to see and activate your business event.

D365 FO – Create deep links, shareable, secured URLs in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for finance & operations

A complete guide to mobile app deep linking | Adjust

What is deep links in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for finance and operation? Deep links are shareable and secures URLs to a specific form. Optional filters can be passed so that when user will open the deep link and navigate to a specific form then it will show filtered data ore records. In Microsoft D365 FO, below library – Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Utilities.UrlHelper.UrlGenerator is used to generate deep links using X++ .

Sample Code – Below is the sample code of developing & generating deep links for D365 FO forms and records using filter and ranges in form data source. In below example, i am generating the sharable URL (deep link ) of a form – CustAccount and applying a “CustAccount” filter on custTable datasource.

using Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Utilities; // setting library/Dll reference

class DeepLinkTest
{
    public static void main(Args _args)
    {
        MenuItemNameDisplay menuItemName                = menuItemDisplayStr(CustTable);  // customer form
        MenuItemType        menuItemtype                = MenuItemType::Display;
        str                 filterformDataSource        = formDataSourceStr(CustTable, CustTable);  // filer datasource
        str                 filterFormDataSourceField   = fieldStr(CustTable, AccountNum); // filter field

        UrlHelper.UrlGenerator generator = new UrlHelper.UrlGenerator();
        System.Uri currentHost = new System.Uri(UrlUtility::getUrl());
 
        generator.HostUrl = currentHost.GetLeftPart(System.UriPartial::Authority);
        generator.Company = curExt();
        generator.MenuItemName = menuItemName;
        generator.MenuItemType = menuItemtype;
        generator.Partition = getCurrentPartition();
        generator.EncryptRequestQuery = true; 
        if(filterformDataSource)
        {
            UrlHelper.RequestQueryParameterCollection requestQueryParameterCollection;
 
            requestQueryParameterCollection = generator.RequestQueryParameterCollection;
            requestQueryParameterCollection.UpdateOrAddEntry(filterformDataSource, filterFormDataSourceField, "CustAccount"); // applying filter
        } 

        System.Uri fullURI = generator.GenerateFullUrl();
 
        Info(fullURI.AbsoluteUri); // getting deep link
    }

}

    public static void main(Args _args)
    {
        System.IO.Stream fileStream;
        System.IO.MemoryStream zipArchiveStream = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
        DocuRef docuRef;
        DocuValue docuValue;
        
        const str extensionZip = '.zip';
        const str zipFileName = 'myZipfile';
    
        using (System.IO.Compression.ZipArchive zipArchive = new System.IO.Compression.ZipArchive(
            zipArchiveStream,
            System.IO.Compression.ZipArchiveMode::Create,
            true))
        {
            while select docuRef
                join docuValue
            where docuValue.RecId   == docuRef.ValueRecId
            && docuRef.RefTableId   == 'your table id'
            && docuRef.RefRecId     == 'your rec id'
            {            
                // Creates the file entry in the zip folder.
                System.IO.Compression.ZipArchiveEntry fileEntry = zipArchive.CreateEntry(docuValue.filename());
            
                // Opens the created file entry and copies the binary file information of the original file to the file entry in the zip folder.
                using (System.IO.Stream fileEntryStream = fileEntry.Open())
                {
                    // Gets the file stream of the document attachment.
                    fileStream = DocumentManagement::getAttachmentStream(docuRef);
                    fileStream.CopyTo(fileEntryStream);
                }
            }

            // Send a download link of the created zip folder to the user.
            File::SendFileToUser(zipArchiveStream, zipFileName + extensionZip);
        }
    }
