If you put a text box widget on a page, an html id will be generated by Mendix.

The modulename, pagename and the name you give to your widget will be part of the id. Automated testing tools can use that to identify fields while running tests.

Is that what you were looking for?


In the textbox you can write {1} and after that add an attribute which will be shown. If you want a 2nd attribute to be showed, you use {2}. So for example you an write:

Hello I am {1} and I am {2} years old (where first attribute can be linked to a username and 2nd attribute to an integer of age).
