How to display front end names in Calculated fields

raviteja asked on September 11, 2023

Hi Team,
 The formula is shown with backend field names (e.g.count("AWB") * count("SHP_REC_KEY") ) rather than the frontend field names, it might cause the difficulty for report receiver or even owner to read how the calculated fields are composed. 
Is there an a way to display front end names instead of DB names?

Hello, Raviteja!
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Kindly note that it is possible to show the measure's caption instead of the uniqueName in the Calculated Values pop-up using the useCaptionsInCalculatedValueEditor property. It can be defined in your report as follows:

report: {
    options: {
      useCaptionsInCalculatedValueEditor: true,
      //other options properties
//other report properties

We have prepared a JSFiddle sample for visualization:
Hope you will find our answer helpful.
Feel free to contact us in case of any other questions.
Kind regards,
