Custom Datasource Field Name

Thread ID:

Asked On April 18, 2019 02:23 PM UTC


I have a spreadsheet with sheet bind from a datasource with the option 'FieldAsColumnHeader' set as true. The problem is that it always get the field name as it is in the datasource (ex.: I have a field called "ItemCode" and I would like it to show in the header as "Item Code"). Is there a way to customize the fields name that are shown in the header? It would help in the process of localization too.
