Microsoft Dynamics AX development

Goal: print the logo only if the print destination is the printer

First of all we need a parameter, and we declare it in the contract class as follow:

[DataMemberAttribute('printLogo')]
public boolean parmPrintLogo(UsePrintMgmt _printLogo = printLogo)
{
    printLogo = _printLogo;
    return printLogo;
}

Then, we must to modify the code of the report controller. The controller must extend the SrsPrintMgmtFormLetterController or a subclass of this.

The method to override is: SrsPrintMgmtController.outputReport()
This method executes the report for the print management setting that is currently loaded.

In this way, for every record in the print management, we control the print destination, and consequently we set the parameter for the logo visibility.

protected void outputReport()
{
    SalesConfirmContract salesConfirmContract = contract as SalesConfirmContract;

    switch (formLetterReport.getCurrentPrintSetting().parmPrintJobSettings().printMediumType())
    {
        case SRSPrintMediumType::Printer : salesConfirmContract.parmPrintLogo(NoYes::No);
        break;

        default : salesConfirmContract.parmPrintLogo(NoYes::Yes);
        break;
    }

    super();
}

If the logo visibility, depend on the type of the PrintCopyOriginal, the code to use is the following:

protected void outputReport()
{
    SalesConfirmContract salesConfirmContract = contract as SalesConfirmContract;
    switch (formLetterReport.getCurrentPrintSetting().parmType())
    {
        case PrintMgmtDocInstanceType::Copy :
	salesConfirmContract.parmPrintLogo(NoYes::No);
        break;

        case PrintMgmtDocInstanceType::Original :
	salesConfirmContract.parmPrintLogo(NoYes::Yes);
        break;
    }
    super();
}

Now, we have to use the new parameter in the report layout. We found the parameter here:
parameter

Finally, insert the following code in the layout, in the “Visibility” property on the image.
