how to Display friendly column names for externalists in bcs


  • Hi,

    If you are using SharePoint Designer you may set the name in "Display Name" property for specified column in ReadItem operation.

    If you create the External Content Type manually or in Visual Studio you should set DefaultDisplayName attribute for the TypeDescriptor of specified column.

    <TypeDescriptor TypeName="System.Int32" ReadOnly="true" IdentifierName="officeCode" Name="officeCode" DefaultDisplayName="Office Code" />
