Re: Change field name in current selection box conditionally

The current selections box always shows the field names as they are in data model and not customizable.

Think of using a text box with functions GetCurrentSelections(), or better GetFieldSelections() - in this case you have enough flexibility to show they way you want.  But you lose functionality like changing selections, lock/unlock, clear selections, which you have in the real current selections box.

See here some alternatives: Current Selection Alternatives but like mov mentioned they all have disadvantages compared with a native current selections box.

Re: Change field name in current selection box conditionally

My requirement: rename filed Product to [USER Product]  at current selections.

May be you can rename the filed as required filed with out distubing the existing filed name.

In my scenario I followd the below staps

Load

Prd_01 as Product

ftom table1;

So I modified this way

Load

Prd_01 as Product

Prd_01 as [USER Product]

ftom table1;

now instead of showing Product listbox i am populating [USER Product] list box. so that I can show USER product filed at Current list box.

HTH.

Thanks
