How to call standard button Clicked method from customized button in D365FO

Hi Guy's,

Recently, I received one requirement where we need standard button clicked method logic to be called from customized button on the same form but in another Action Pane Tab and button group.

To achieve this requirement, I used COC of the form and retrieve the button control in variable. I easily able to call the method's define on the button.

Please check below code.

final class WHSLoadTableForm_Extension

[FormControlEventHandler(formControlStr(WHSLoadTable, PickList), FormControlEventType::Clicked)]
public static void PickList_OnClicked(FormControl sender, FormControlEventArgs e)
        FormButtonControl callerButton = sender as FormButtonControl;

                  FormRun form = callerButton.formRun();

                  FormButtonControl btnPickList ="WHSPickListShipping") as                 FormButtonControl;



Happy Learning !!

As per requirement of client, PAN number should be display on vendor list page. I have created a display method on VendTable and added to vendTableListPage design

display PANNumber_IN getVendPANNumber()
    TaxInformationVendTable_IN      taxInformationVendtable_IN;

    select firstOnly PANNumber from taxInformationVendtable_IN
        where taxInformationVendtable_IN.VendTable == this.AccountNum;

    return taxInformationVendtable_IN.PANNumber;

After adding fields on Design, Save and compile the form.
**Most Important**
Go to the front end i.e. AX Client, Accounts Payable/ Vendors, the vendor list page form will open, Right click on form then Click on Reset button. After this you have to close the form and reopen again.
