Provide Base Enum name and element number and get the label of that element through X++

In this article you will be aware that how the get the label of an element of a base enum.
Prerequisite: You should have basic programming knowledge of X++.

I applied it on Ax 3.0

You can provide the base enum name directly using global method fieldnum() or you can provide it in a string using method fieldname2id() where you need to give table id and fieldname.

Steps are as below:
1) Open your Ax application then AOT.

2) Go to Jobs node and create a new job. Rename the job if you need. I renamed it to DictEnumElementLabel.

3) Now write the following lines...

static void DictEnumElementLabel(Args _args)
DictEnum de;
DictField df;
df = new DictField(tablenum(SalesTable),fieldname2id(tablenum(SalesTable),'SalesType'));
if(typeof(df.type()) == Types::Enum) //checks if Type == Enum
de = new DictEnum(df.enumId());

info(de.index2Name(3)); // print element label
info('Not Enum type');

4) Now run the job and you will get the label of element of the base enum 'SalesTypes' you specified.
