The following job demonstrates how to display the values of a financial dimension - in the example Department - via X++.

static void getValues4Dimension(Args _args)
    DimensionValueService dimensionValueService;
    DimensionContract dimensionContract;
    List dimensionValueContractList;
    ListEnumerator listEnumerator ;
    DimensionValueContract dimensionValueContract;
    DimensionValue dimensionValue;

    dimensionValueService = new DimensionValueService();
    dimensionContract = new DimensionContract();
    dimensionValueContractList = dimensionValueService.getDimensionValues(dimensionContract);
    listEnumerator = dimensionValueContractList.getEnumerator();

    setPrefix(strFmt("Dimension %1: ", dimensionContract.parmDimensionName()));
        dimensionValueContract = listEnumerator.current();
        dimensionValue = dimensionValueContract.parmValue();

This post is part of the series »Dynamics AX 2012 - Financial dimensions«

In Dynamics AX 2012, the handling of financial dimensions has changed. Both on the surface and the underlying data model.

In earlier versions you find one field - usually named dimension - of type array. Now you'll find a field derived from RecId called DefaultDimension (or similar).

In this series I want to specifically address these changes and present one or the other piece of code.
