If you want to change the Column DisplayName (global) from AdaptedPropertyDescriptor for every entity.


public class FoundationModule : ModuleInit {  

    public override void AddServices() {

         Model.EntityPropertyDescriptors.Customers.CompanyName.SetDisplayName("Company");
         Model.EntityPropertyDescriptors.Customers.ContactName.SetDisplayName("Contact");
         ...
         Model.EntityPropertyDescriptors.Employee...

This work but is the best way to do it ?
Thanks

It's certainly a reasonable way to go, assuming doing when the Foundation module is loaded is early enough. 

Also, I'm not sure I'd put it in the AddServices() method.  Better to factor into a different "AdjustColumnDisplayNames()" method.
