Passing Multiple Records from one form to another through Args in Dynamics Ax 2012

The Scenario is when I select multiple lines in grid from Form A, those records will be passed to FormB and there FormB will received the all those records and filter it and will show.

Step 1: Make one SampleTable which has three fields named (SIno, name, AddressCity).
Step 2: Make FormA with datasource as SampleTable and drag the datasource fields into the design Grid.
Step 3: Drag one button and override the click method and write the following code.(Make sure property:MultiSelect is Yes)
step 4: Make one Display menuitem of FormB.

void clicked()

int recordsCount;
SampleTable _sampleTable;
container con;
Args args;
str multiSelectString;

args = new Args();
recordsCount = SampleTable_ds.recordsMarked().lastIndex(); // gets the total records selected
_sampleTable = SampleTable_ds.getFirst(1);

while (_sampleTable)
// storing recid of selected field in container
con = conIns(con,1,_sampleTable.RecId);

// converting container to string with comma separated
multiSelectString = con2Str(con,’,’);

_sampleTable = SampleTable_ds.getNext(); // moves to next record
// passing string
// calling menu item
new MenuFunction(menuitemDisplayStr(FormBMenuItem), MenuItemType::Display).run(args);

step 5: Make FormB with datasource as same table for which you take for Form A i.e., SampleTable and drag the fields in to the
Grid of design part.
step 7: write the following code in to the init method of FormB.

public void init()
container con;
int i;
str multipleRecords;
// getting string value from caller
multipleRecords = element.args().parm();

// string to container
con = str2con(multipleRecords,”,”);

// for sorting
for(i = 1;i<= conLen(con) ;i++)
