what is best practice in renaming (sub)menu items?

  

in the Silk UI online workshop a renaming of submenu items is suggested. I changed the x,y expression.value in the menu link from GetMenuItem(Entities.MenuItem.HomePage).MenuItem.Caption into literal value "List Orders", but then the menu in the database has a different caption from the literal one. How serious is this inconsistency? How to change the caption in the menu database? 

Hi Ton,

Changing the submenu or menu item name is a design option. By default we use the MenuItem and MenuSubItem static entities with the attribute caption but as far as you keep the consistency on all menus there is no problem on changing it to a different value.

The Caption attribute of you static entity can only be changed on service studio by editing the static entity. Static entity values should not be changed directly on database. Changing the caption on service studio will change the value on database.
