# CaptionClass Property

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013

Controls the caption that is used in the label of a field in a database table or in the label of a control on a page.

• Table Fields

• Page Fields

## Remarks

The data type of the C/AL expression must be either Text (maximum length 80) or Code.

Because this property lets you enter an expression, Microsoft Dynamics NAV must be able to differentiate between a literal string like 'DIM1' and a variable or function called DIM1. Every text string that you enter must be enclosed in ' ' or it will be interpreted as a variable or function. You must enter a value that results in a string. For example, if you want to enter 1 + 5, you must either enter '1+ 5', or FORMAT(1 + 5), which results in '6'.

The expression is then interpreted by trigger 15 in codeunit 1.

DIM1

This value produces an error unless a text variable exists with the name DIM1.

'DIM1'

OK. The caption is 'DIM1.'

'DIM'+FORMAT(2)

OK. The caption is 'DIM2.'

1+5

Error. The data type is Integer
