How to pass static string to the control

Simple requirement. Want the consumer of the control to specify a hardcoded string e.g. relationship_name during configuration time.

 

Have tried setting the usage="input" on the property but this way the control does not appear at all.

 

What the is the recommended way to achieve this?

Re: How to pass static string to the control

Since we do not have the unbound controls supported yet you will need to have one dummy bound field to b able to show he control in config UI. So net net two properties in manifest, one bound and another input.

Re: How to pass static string to the control

I did a custom control which asks for a JS regex to be passed as a string on form design while configuring the control. My control was ok and I used this regex for data validation. I may be incorrectly understanding you but looks like using a  property of type "SingleLine.Text" with "input" as usage we can do it. So it may be another thing stopping your control to appear. One more thing that was helpful was after initial (basic) testing, I started testing in D365 form.
