Create a new method in runtime

Some one may need to use codes to create or edit a method in Axapta.
Here is an example to show how to create a lookup method for a form’s field in runtime.

    static void CreateFieldMethod(Args _args)

        TreeNode tn1,tnAddr, methodsNode;
        MemberFunction memberFunction;
        str source;

        //Thanks for Max Belugin’s comments,
        //it is really good to use Verbatim String as well.
        //The reason why I use escape characters here is
        //because this line of code is copied from standard Axapta application 🙂
        tn1 = infolog.findNode(

"\Forms\Address\Data Sources\Address\Fields\AddrRecId");

        tnAddr = infolog.findNode( "
\Forms\Address" );
        methodsNode = tn1.AOTfindChild( ‘Methods’ );
        memberFunction = methodsNode.AOTfindChild( ‘lookup’ );
        source =
@"public void lookup(FormControl _formControl, str _filterStr)
                                super(_formControl, _filterStr);
                         }" ;
        memberFunction.AOTsetSource(source, false);
