Change control's displayName in Javascript - Lightswitch HTML Client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Example:

    I have a Textbox (Question) Control with displayName "Question"

    In Javascript, on certain postrender method, when I do,

    contentItem.screen.findContentItem("Question").displayName = "Question Text";

    This change doesn't reflect on the UI. Any solution?

  • Hi,

    It seems that you can modify button name at the screen.created event, you can simply change the content item's displayName, we discussed similar issue before.

    for example:

    myapp.Browse.created = function (screen) {


            .displayName = "New Display Name";


    hope it helps.
