Instead of displaying the value from the attribute's heading, such as
OrderId, you can replace these with more meaningful labels for the user, such as
The Control Hints section of the Edit Attribute dialog provides a centralized location to apply the desired control hint to the chosen data item. For example, you can customize label text and format type for a view object attribute.
The control hints mechanism supports these control hint properties that you can customize:
<JDeveloper_Home>/system n. n. n.../formatinfo.xmlfile.
After entering a value for Label Text in the Edit Attribute dialog, open the Property Inspector for the attribute you edited. In the Property Inspector, expand UI Hints. You should see the new label text you entered, and any other control hint property you may have customized using the Edit Attribute dialog.
Note: After adding label text for the view object attributes, you may not see the control hint label text on the Java visual editor immediately. You have to close and reopen the View project, then open Form.java to see the control hint label text you have added.
