I have created a list and deployed it to the SharePoint site. (It is SharePoint 2010 on-premise, but I think the process is same the for 2010 and 2013)
Later on client wanted to change the display name of couple of columns/fields. So, I made changes in those columns'/fields' display names (and in descriptions of those columns) in Schema.xml and updated wsp on that site (
I found that in NewForm.aspx the fields didn't change their display names. It shows the old names on new item form but it did change the descriptions of those fields.
Am I missing something? Why wouldn't the display names of fields change but descriptions do just fine?
Can anybody point in the right direction?
Update: When I check in List settings, I can clearly see that the display names are changed in the columns section. But the NewForm and EditForm show the old names.
