Put constant inside binding


There is a way inside binding to put some constant

instead of

  new sap.ui.commons.TextView({
  text: "{FILENAME}",

  new sap.ui.commons.TextView({
  text: constant "{FILENAME}",


IMO, Sai's solution is good.

However, we have to be careful if the text is localized. Then it is better not to do string concatenation but have a sap.ui.model.resource.ResourceModel to defined the format.

then you can do

var oTextView = new sap.ui.commons.TextView({
    text: {
       parts: ['i18n>localizedStr', 'FILENAME'],
       formatter: function(localizedString, filename) {
           return localizedString.replace('{0}', filename);

Where i18n is the resource model and example of localizedStr is

constant {0}
