Hardcoded string literal in a UI form

Reports any instances of hardcoded strings in your UI forms.

Hardcoded string literals are usually errors in an internationalized environment. This inspection does not report empty strings and strings consisting of only whitespace.

The quick-fix transforms a string literal into a reference to a property in a resource bundle.

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.
