AX – D365FO – Show the Layer in AOT Development Workspace for Elements in AX2012

The Application Object Tree (AOT) in Microsoft Dynamics AX can display information about which layers elements are in or have been modified in. The layer information is shown in parentheses immediately following the element name in the AOT; for example, CustTable (sys). This topic describes how to specify the layer information that appears with elements in the AOT.

To change the layer view for elements

  1. Click Tools > Options. The Options dialog box opens.
  2. In the Development area, expand Application object tree, and then set the Application object layer field to one of the following options.

Show highest layerElements are labeled with information about the highest layer in which they exist.For example, if an element from the SYS layer was modified in the FPK and VAR layers, the element would be labeled: (var).
Show corrected layersOnly elements that have been modified in the current layer or a higher layer are labeled. Only the highest layer is shown.For example, if an element from the SYS layer was modified in the FPK and VAR layers, the element would be labeled: (var).

All layers in which the element has been modified are shown.For example, if a SYS element was modified in the FPK and VAR layers, the element would be labeled: (sys, fpk, var) if you are in the SYS layer.
