Read All Files inside a directory

container mainFolder, subFolder, fileContainer;
boolean filesFoundMainFolder = true;
boolean filesFoundSubFolder = true;

foundBaseFileName = conpeek(mainFolder, 2);
while (filesFoundMainFolder)
if (foundBaseFileName != #currentFolder &&
foundBaseFileName != #upFolder &&
foundBaseFileName != '')

Client/Server Performance

By default, Insert, Update and Delete methods on the Tables are always server bound, even though it is not stated in the definition of the method.
The methods cannot be forced to the client because any client modifier is simply ignored by the Dynamics AX application runtime.

Dynamics AX Report can be executed on either the client or the server. Exactly where to execute the report is defined by the menu item that open the report. If reports are executed on the server but displayed on the client, the individual pages are generated on the server and sent to the client. If a report is executed on the client, the client renders and generates the report pages.

Rich forms are always executed on the client, which results in client/server traffic when fetching and manipulating records. In addition, display methods can degrade form performance because the displayed methods are executed by the form application runtime whenever it refreshes the forms control displaying the value.
A server-bound display method could cause a substantial number of client/server calls, especially if the display methods is show in a grid in which the returned value from multiple display methods is shown at the same time. You can, however, cache the value from the display method by calling the CacheAddMethod method on the FormDataSource object..The form Application runtime then caches the returned values and refreshes them only when the record is modified or re-read.

The date format in Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 Enterprise Portal site is not changed after you change displayed the date format of SharePoint sites

You change the displayed date format of the SharePoint sites in the Regional Settings Web page. However, the date format in Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 Enterprise Portal site is not changed. If you change the profile of the regional setting of the current user, the date format will not be changed either.

To change the date format, create and set a local interactive account for the Enterprise Portal (EP) user on the server that is running Internet Information Services (IIS) and then set the desired local regional setting. If you want to have a default regional setting for a user who does not have a local account, or does not have a user profile in IIS, change the system-wide setting of the server that is running IIS.

The underlying class that displays Web forms is the WebFormHtml class. The WebFormHtml class sends dates that are in the layoutDate() method. The layoutDate() method makes a call to the date2strUser(,,,) method to format the date. The date2strUser() method that is defined in "\Classes\Global\" is a wrapper around the date2Str() method.

In Enterprise Portal, date is formatted according to the regional settings that are defined in the server that is running IIS. When a user has a local profile in the server that is running IIS and a regional setting exists for this user, this local regional setting overrides the system-wide regional setting. By default, if the user does not have a user profile in the server that is running IIS, Enterprise Portal will use the system-wide regional settings of Windows Server 2003.
