Hi Philippe, 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 field's feel...
>> 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. -- Carl Read
