You've probably got this far, but to share a string between fields
just give them the same string in the layout. ie...
>> str: ""
>> view layout [field str field str]
That's only half of what you want though. I would think editing the
fields' feel/engage function would be required to get them to update
together. See the block after 'key in engage. Try this to see a
>> view layout [f: field]
>> probe f/feel
Others will have to tell you precisely what to do there though. Hope
that helps to get you on your way, though.
