That is, effect of hotkey No.1 is similar to the effect of button No.1 in AxAssist's Editor Toolbar (comment out the selected lines). You can customize up to 20 hotkeys by writing appropriate processing in editorHotkey() method of DEV_AxAssistHotkeys class. See example in How to add a new hotkey.

Settings

Suggestions setting




Common settings

  • Enabled - controls activity.
  • Min number of characters - suggestion list will appear after typing same or more characters.

Name matching

  • First capital letter - if enabled, list will appear only if case of first typed letter is the same as the first letter of Dynamics AX type.
  • Case sensitive - defines mode of searching.

It is recommended to set "first capital letter" and "case sensitive" enabled in case of using Name matching and Acronyms logic together.

This could be illustrated by samples below:

Acronyms

  • Extended acronyms - If disabled, the list is based on entered sequence only. If enabled, the list is based on entered sequence (for example, IT) and its possible variations (ITA, ITB etc.).

    This could be illustrated by samples below:

  • Ignored Prefix - Entered prefixes will be ignored when using Acronyms. It is usable for names of your objects.
    You can use multiple Ignored prefixes - separate them with using ",". For example, "MP_, CPT, MSP_".

For example, you have variable type named MP_MyCustomTable. Set "Ignored Prefix" to "MP_" and you will see your variable in Acronyms suggestion list after typing "MCT". In other case you should enter MPMCT to see your variable.
Please notice, that you should restart Microsoft Dynamics AX client to accept new setting.
