CLRInterop::getAnyTypeForObject Method

Converts a common language runtime (CLR) object to a value of the X++ anytype data type.

Syntax

client server public static anytype getAnyTypeForObject(CLRObject clrObject)

Run On

Called

Parameters

  • clrObject
    Type: CLRObject Class
    The CLR object to convert to an X++ data type.

Return Value

Type: anytype
An X++ anytype date type that has the value of the _object argument.

Remarks

If an attacker can control input to the getAnyTypeForObject method, a security risk exists. Therefore, this method runs under Code Access Security. Calls to this method on the server require permission. Make sure that the user has development privileges by setting the security key to SysDevelopment on the control that calls this method.

If the argument cannot be converted to an X++ data type, an exception of the Exception::ClrError type is thrown.

Examples

The following example sets the value of a CLR string to an X++ str data type.

{ 
    CLRObject clrObj; 
    InteropPermission perm; 
    System.String   clrStr = "Calculate total"; 
    str             s; 
     
    perm = new InteropPermission(InteropKind::ClrInterop); 
    if (perm == null) 
    { 
        return; 
    } 
    perm.assert(); 
  
    s = ClrInterop::getAnyTypeForObject(clrStr); 
    CodeAccessPermission::revertAssert(); 
}
