If b=gcd(a,m)=1, we have: ax-km=1 According to Euclid's Extended Algorithm, then there are numbers which satisfy x and k. That is: ax≡1 (mod m) has solutions for x when a and m are relatively prime. Unique Solution Suppose x 1 is one solution and x 2 is another solution, then ax 1 ≡1 ≡ax 2 (mod m) So x 1 ≡x 2 (mod m). We can divide by a, because, from above, a and m are relatively. Since f(0) = 0, it follows that f will have an absolute minimum if xAx 0 for all x 6= 0 and it will have an absolute maximum if xAx Ax changes sign, then x = 0 will be a saddle point. This simple example suggests the fillowing definitions. We say that a real symmetric n×n matrix is. Our Living Language Ax, a nonstandard variant of ask, is often identified as an especially salient feature of African American Vernacular English. The usage occurs most frequently in the speech of Southern, working-class African Americans, but it occurs occasionally in the speech of working-class white Southerners as well.

In Microsoft Dynamics AX, the X++ language provides the as and is expression operators to control downcast assignments. Downcast assignments involve class or table inheritance.


For information about the terminology of inheritance, see Inheritance Terminology.

Assignment statements that implicitly downcast can cause errors that are hard for the programmer to predict or diagnose. You can use the as keyword to make your downcasts explicit. You can use the is keyword to test whether a downcast is valid at run time.

As Keyword

You can use the as keyword for assignments that downcast from a base class variable to a derived class variable. The as keyword tells other programmers and the compiler that you believe the downcast will be valid during run time.

As Keyword at Compile Time

Starting in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 or in a release to follow, the X++ compiler reports an error for downcast assignment statements that lack the as keyword.

As Keyword at Run Time

At run time, the as keyword causes the downcast assignment statement to assign null if the downcast is invalid.

Code Example for the As Keyword

In the following code example, the DerivedClass class extends the BaseClass class. The code example contains two valid assignments between its basec and derivedc variables. The upcast assignment to basec does not need the as keyword, but the downcast assignment to derivedc does need the as keyword. The following code would compile and run without errors.

Is Keyword

The is keyword ascertains whether an object is a subtype of a specified class. The is expression returns true if the object is a subtype of the class, or if the object is the same type as the class.

Is Keyword at Compile Time

The X++ compiler reports an error if an is keyword expression compares two types where neither is a subtype of the other, and they are not of the same type. The compiler reports a similar error for any plain assignment statement between two types where neither is a subtype of the other, and they are not of the same type.

Is Keyword at Run Time

At run time the type of variable that references the underlying object is irrelevant to the is keyword. The is keyword causes the system to check the object that the variable references, not the declared type of the variable that references the object.

Code Examples for the Is Keyword

The following code examples illustrate the conditions that control whether an is expression returns true or false. The code examples rely on the fact that the Form class and the Query class both extend the TreeNode class.

Code example


The X++ compiler issues an error.

The compiler ascertains that the Form class and the Query class are not part of the same inheritance hierarchy. Both the Form class and the Query extends the TreeNode class, but neither Form nor Query is a subtype of the other.

The Infolog displays 0 during run time, where 0 means false.

No supertype object can be considered to also be of its subtype class.

The Infolog displays 0 during run time, where 0 means false.

A null reference causes the is expression to return false.

The Infolog displays 1 during run time, where 1 means true.

An object is an instance of its own class type.

The Infolog displays 1 during run time, where 1 means true.

Every subtype is also of its supertype.

The Infolog displays 1 during run time, where 1 means true.

The type of the underlying object is what matters in the is expression, not the type of the variable that references the object.

Using Is and As Keywords Together

This is keyword is often used to safely test whether the as keyword will work.

Code Example

The following code example contains a common use of the is keyword. The as keyword is used after the is keyword verifies that the as keyword will the object. The is and as keywords are uppercase to make them more visible in this example.

Output to the Infolog

Test 1: (basec IS DerivedClass) is true. Good.

Test 2: (!(basec IS DerivedClass)) is true. Good.

Object Class is a Special Case

The Object class can appear as a special case in inheritance functionality. The X++ compiler has special logic to bypass type checking for assignments to and from variables that are declared of type Object.


You could misinterpret some X++ statements if you are unaware of this special case.

Some classes inherit from the Object class, some inherit from another class, and some do not inherit from any class. The Dialog class does not inherit from any class, yet the assignment and call statements in the following code example all work.

The assignment would fail at compile time if it had been bank4 = dlog3;, because the Bank and Dialog classes have no inheritance relationship to each other.

The X++ compiler performs only one small check on assignments to a variable that is declared of the Object class. The compiler checks to make sure that the item being assigned to the Object variable is an instance of a class.

The compiler does not allow an instance of a table buffer to be assigned to the Object variable. Also, the compiler does not allow primitive data types, such as int or str, to be assigned to the Object variable.

Root Items in Table Inheritance

All tables inherit directly from the Common system table, unless they explicitly inherit from a different table. The Common table cannot be instantiated. The Common table does not exist in the underlying physical database. The Common table inherits from the xRecord class, but only in a special way that is not appropriate for the is keyword or the as keyword.

As Keyword and Tables

When the as keyword is used to perform an invalid downcast among tables, the target variable references an unusable non-null entity. Any attempt to dereference the target variable will cause an error that stops the X++ program.

Is and As Keywords and Extended Data Types

Each extended data type has an Extends property. The style of inheritance that is controlled by this property differs from the style of inheritance that the is and as keywords are designed for.

(10) The wording of this verse in the original is very obscure; and we can only say of the rendering in the text that it seems to be preferred to any which it has been proposed to substitute for it. The mention of cutting wood in the preceding verse suggests the illustration from the axe, exemplifying how wisdom will serve instead of strength.

Iron.--2Kings 6:5; Isaiah 10:34; Proverbs 27:17.

Whet.--Ezekiel 21:21, where it is translated 'make bright.'

Edge.--Literally, face. We have often in Hebrew 'mouth of the sword,' for edge of the sword, but the only parallel for the expression 'face' in that sense is in the highly poetical passage in Ezekiel 21:16, just referred to.

Must he put to more strength.--'Make his strength mighty,' the words being nearly the same as in the phrase 'mighty men of strength' (1Chronicles 7:5).

Verse 10. - If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge. The illustration at the end of the last verse is continued. The 'iron' is the axe used in cutting wood; if this be blunted by the work to which it is put, and he, the laborer, has not sharpened the edge (Hebrew, the face, as in Ezekiel 21:1), what is the consequence? How is he to carry on his work? Then must he put to more strength. He must put more force in his blows, he must make up for the want of edge by added power and weight. This is the simplest explanation of the passage, which contains many linguistic difficulties. These may be seen discussed at length in the commentaries of Delitzsch, Wright, Nowack, etc. The translation of Ginsburg is not commendable, 'If the axe be blunt, and he (the tyrant's opponent)do not sharpen it beforehand (phanim, taken as an adverb of time), he (the tyrant) shall only increase the army.' The Septuagint is obscure, Ἐὰν ἐκπέσῃ τὸ σιδήριον καὶ αὐτὸςπρόσωπον ἐτάραξε καὶ δυνάμεις δυναμώσει, 'If the axe should fall, then he troubles his face, and he shall strengthen his forces (? double his strength);' Vulgate, Si retusum fuerit ferrurn, et hoc non ut prius, sed hebetatum fuerit, multo labore exacuetur, 'If the iron shall be blunted, and it be not as before, but have become dull, it shall be sharpened with much labor.' But wisdom is profitable to direct; rather, the advantage of setting right is (on the side of) wisdom. Wisdom teaches how to conduct matters to a successful termination; for instance, it prompts the worker to sharpen his tool instead of trying to accomplish his task by an exertion of mere brute strength. The gnome applies to all the instances which have been mentioned above. Wisdom alone enables a man to meet and overcome the dangers and difficulties which beset his social, common, and political life. If we apply the whole sentence to the case of disaffection with the government or open rebellion, the caution given would signify - See that your means are adequate to the end, that your resources are sufficient to conduct your enterprise to success. Septuagint Vatican, Καὶ περίσσεια τῷ ἀνδρὶ οὐσοφία, 'And the advantage to man is not wisdom.' But manuscripts A and C read, Καὶ περισσεια τοῦ αηνδρίου σοφία: Vulgate, If ax=b is inconsistentPost industriam sequetur sapientia, 'After industry shall follow wisdom.'
