Add Variable Name to Assign Window

Service Studio
On our radar
It would be nice to see the Assign Variable Name as part of the Assign Window Title when you are setting an Assign Value.  In the attached Image, I am setting one of the Employee Assign Values.  But Which Variable???

This will make it easier to remember which value you are currently assigning. In complex scenarios, you can have multiple value assignments in a single assign widget and the variable names could be quite long and legible if they all start with LoooooooooooongFormName.List.Current.LoooongishEntityName

Merged this idea with 'Service Studio's editor window title should reflect field being edited' (created on 08 Jul 2019 16:17:13 by João Heleno)

When editing parameters, the editor's title should reflect the value currently being edited instead of the name of the element that has said parameters.

I agree with you, as I think it would make assignments less error-prone by giving an immediate visual indication of what's being assigned.


Cheers!

Great idea, although I think there is already a similar idea created for this... Just can't find it right now...
