I am following this GenieBuilder tutorial on YouTube ( and am building a simple UI with a date picker and some paragraphs that I want to link to output data. I already wantd to fill in the names of the fields the data is linked to, like is done in the tutorial. When I bind the date picker to a data field, the paragraph text binding shows the same name, even when I did not set it. When looking at the html code, everything is just fine though so this must be a display bug I guess.

I'm not sure I understand the issue. The default text you have in the

component will be overriden by the text in the consumed_on and consumingvariables when the page is rendered in the browser. The nocode editor does not render the page, so it will not show the actual contents of the variables.

It's the way the fields are represented in the nocode editor. When I alter the data binding in the date picker and then click on the first text field, it is as if the data binding for that field has been set to the same value. In this case "consumption_date". To see the real values the data bindings are set to, I need to open the html file. It's confusing to work with in the nocode editor.

Thanks for the explanation. I've been able to reproduce the issue and there's definitely something wrong
