Calling/Opening AX form through X++

Sample piece of code to open AX form through X++

static void OpenForm_ThroughCode(Args _args)
{
    Args                            args;
    Object                          formRun;

    // open form
    args = new Args();
    args.name(formstr(FormName));
    formRun = classfactory.formRunClass(args);
    formRun.init();
    formRun.run();
    formRun.wait();
}

If you want to pass a record to open a form

args = new Args();
args.record(ProjTable::find('PR00001'));
args.name(formstr(FormName));
formRun = classfactory.formRunClass(args);
formRun.init();
formRun.run();

formRun.wait();

How to retrieve these args on caller form's init()

public void init()
{
    ProjTable   projTableLocal;   
    super();   
    projTableLocal = element.args().record();   
}
