Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Classes in assemblies that are managed by the common language runtime (CLR) can be accessed in X++ code. This feature of Microsoft Dynamics AX is called .NET interop from X++.

.NET interop from X++ is useful when you want your X++ code to access the functionalities in a CLR managed assembly. This includes assemblies that are installed with the .NET Framework. It also includes any assemblies that you create with a language such as C# or Visual Basic.

The .NET interop from X++ feature works in the direction from X++ calling into CLR managed assemblies. For information about .NET interop in the other direction, see the following topics:
