A Rating scale is a method that requires the user to assign a value, a number of star or heart, to the rated object.

A rating control is recognized as a text attribute but it displays as a number. It's only applicable for Form Builder.

Binding is also only applicable for form builder. A rating field can be reset to bind with any other text input controls on this form.
