Applications → Working with Forms → Customizing Forms → Tips for Working With Forms → Using the String Builder Tool
The "string builder" tool lets you insert references to table fields and form controls, and insert references to grid data in grid-style widgets. This creates dynamic forms and widgets that are driven by application and grid widget data and the actions of the user. You can combine static data and dynamic data elements in the string. The dynamic data elements represent replaceable text that drives the appearance of input data. The dynamic data is either stored in the database table or on the form.
The string builder tool also enables you to associate a translatable string with a form control or widget. Once you have defined a translatable string on a custom form (via the Localization tab of the form Property Editor), the string is selectable anywhere the string builder appears on the form.
