Regarding LinkTypes In Ax 2012


Can I Know Why Sales order/Purchase Order Form uses Link Type Property As “DELAYED”.

Thanks For Quick Reply.

Thanks & Regards,


The delay insert a pause while navigating through the main table records, which cause a delay in updating the related child table records in the form, which further results a faster navigation. PurchTable and Sales Orders are forms where it is generally expected to have a large number of records(orders), where Delay option will give you a faster navigation rather than Active where the child records are expected to be updated immediately when the main table record is selected(which slows down when you are scrolling to see a record among the multiple records)
