Compile backwards

Today I noticed that Type hierarchy browser in AX 2012 R3 allows you to compile types backwards:


Context menu in AOT supports only forward compilation.

It’s possible that the feature is there for some time and it just took me long time to notice it, because I normally don’t compile code from Type hierarchy browser.


  1. Nice, never noticed this neither.

    As you suspected it’s in AX2009 also.

    • Thank you for letting me know about AX 2009.
      It’s a little thing, but it may be useful from time to time.

  2. I’m bit confusing and haven not noticed in ax2009.
    Could you tell me is there in ax2009 also
