Problem Description:

Text Property inside UI Element Label is not displaying output of a method used in combination with a text in an expected manner.

Sample Code:

Alloy index.xml file content:
			<Label textAlign="centerAlign" text="'Version:' + Ti.App.getVersion()"></Label>
Alloy index.js file inside controller:

Output: 'Version:' + Ti.App.getVersion()

Expected Output: Version:1.0

Scenario 1:

Output is: 'Version:' + Ti.App.getVersion()


Output is : 1.0Version This output the value as expected but if we prefix some text before the method, it consider the whole as a text and displays it inside label rather executing the method. I have tried with some other methods like Ti.getVersion() and it is the same behavior. Please let us know if any other info is required.
