In AOT, you can find resources node

Select resources node and right click; select Create from File, specify the file location
for the new resource

file. After that you can use this resource file in Axapta without specifying an absolute
file path in your

local/server system.

First, pick up the resource node from AOT;

Then generate a temporary file for this resource file;

Finally specify the temporary file path for controls.

Here comes an example to show how to use a resource file as a background image of
a given form.

ResourceNode resourceNode;
FilePath imagename;
resourceNode = SysResource::getResourceNode(resourcestr
if (resourceNode)
resourceNode. AOTload();
imagename = SysResource::saveToTempFile(resourceNode);
throw Error(“No file exists.”)


You can try “Resources” node to achieve your requirement.

Just Add a new resources under “Resources” node in AOT, than use following X++ code to access that image..
