The PromotedActionCategoriesML property is multilanguage enabled, so it can contain a list of text strings in different languages. The string that is used is selected according to the user's language settings. For more information, see Multilanguage Development.

Promoted actions appear in the action bar on a page. You promote an action by setting the Promoted Property to true. You use the PromotedCategory Property to set the category of an action, which allows you to group similar actions under a common caption. You can choose between 20 categories: New, Process, Report, and Category4 through Category20.

By default, the category names are used as the captions in the ribbon. You use this property to customize these captions. The new caption names must me expressed as a string list, where the first three places correspond to the captions of the New, Process and Report categories, respectively, the fourth place to Category4's caption, the fifth to Category5's and so on.


Any empty spaces in the string of promoted action categories are removed. This means that PromotedActionCategories = 'New caption,,,Category4 caption'; is interpreted as PromotedActionCategories = 'New caption,Category4 caption';. To maintain the sequence, you must fill in any empty spaces by, for example, using Category4, Category5 etc.
