Display custom attribute with titles for Value and Description

Display custom attribute with titles for Value and Description. Without titles, it is hard for users to figure out which is value and which is description of the value.

    Hi Weiren - you're referring to our Reference Data Management capabilities, correct? Today, we show the Code and Value within the ui as the [Code] - [Value]. Once you click on that item, you will see the Description as an attribute on that value. I've attached a screenshot of the UI here. The description is very clearly separate from the code and value. Is the issue you've raised here about how we list [Code] - [Value]?

    Let's take an example that you have defined data as show in the following table format. When "Blue/Red" and "Yellow/Black" are presented to user for selection, there is no title of "Description,/Value", so a user have no idea, for example, if Yellow is a Value or Description?

    Hi - I'm not quite sure what you mean by this feedback. Can you provide more information or send over a picture of what you're thinking, so I can imagine what your proposing?
