How do I know what the data element name is?

How do I know what the data element name is?

In trouble shooting a template, you need to know the data element names.  Obviously.

But looking at an interview, the data element names are not always obvious, especially if you have used «Caption»s.

Another situation is with ChooseFromDataSource, and ChooseFromFile (and the Include… variants of those commands), where XpressDox generates a special data element name.

The way to find out what the data element name of any control on the interview is, is as follows:

  1. Put the cursor into the control in question.
  2. Press <Ctrl> and <Alt> together.

The name of the data element (and also any condition applying to it) will be shown in the Help area at the bottom of the interview form.
