New AX 2012 intrinsic functions

Two new intrinsic functions were added in AX 2012. One to reference datasources of queries and another one to reference form controls:

Just want to remind the benefits of using intrinsic functions comparing to plain strings:

  • If the referenced object changes name the problem will be detected in compile time

  • The reference will be reflected as a cross-reference, making the dependencies more transparent
