Default naming of input widgets based on binded attribute

17

For the sake of automated regression testing and improving developer efficiency it would be great if the automated naming of widgets would be updated. Now a developer needs to manually assign descriptive values to names of widgets which relies on the consistency of the team members at the cost of development time. Instead of getting textBox1, datePicker2  automatically assigned as the name of the widget, assign a more functional name to the widget – upon initial binding data – with e.g. the name of the attribute perhaps prefixed with the name of the entity. 

 

Example

  1. Add a textbox via the toolbox or drag and drop an attribute
  2. Bind data via the connector
