try
{
	client.register(ctx, contract);
	Console.WriteLine("items registed on Trans Id: " + contract.InventTransId + " with " + contract.Qty + " quantities.");
	Console.ReadLine();
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
	Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Ex: {0}", ex.Message));
	Console.ReadLine();
}

If it cause error, message would return like this

It’s quite hard for 3rd party developer, especially they don’t have right to access AX server.

Anyway, we can get meaningful error message by doing below steps

  • Check that box in AIF inbound ports

	Console.ReadLine();

}
catch (System.ServiceModel.FaultException<ItemsRegistration.RegRef.AifFault> aifFault)
{
	//FaultMessageList[] list = aifFault.Detail.FaultMessageListArray[0];
	InfologMessage[] list = aifFault.Detail.InfologMessageList;

	foreach (InfologMessage message in list)
	{
		Console.WriteLine(message.Message);

	}
	Console.ReadLine();

}
