UI Text

Hi Community,

Best practice advice please.

Previously when adding text to a ui such as titles, column heders, labels etc I will create 'objects' of the text and this 'objects' are used by the ui instead of simply writing free format text into the UI.

This is to avoid having to change a label in 40 places when the software owner changes his mind on a attribute name etc.

How do we do this in OS. Secondly it helps with multiple language support.

I am not looking for a runtime option but a generation time solution

"The replace all occurences with"


"Find and Replace"

looks like a blunt method but there is not a way on resticting on property type.


you can use the resources when going multilangual.

sadly, it's every text by itself, but it's rather easy to change it.

Thanks J, just checking I was not missing something.
