Making Labels of Links Resizable and Multiline [message #553637] Wed, 18 August 2010 08:35 Go to next message

Hello all,

i have a Link with a label in my Editor. I am trying to let the label be
multi-lined and also resizable.

By inserting the code "fFifureXXXLabel.setTextWrap(true)" inside the
Method "createContents()" of the LinkEditPart i already achieved, that
the label wraps, when a new line begins.

Furthermore, i changed the EditPart of the Label to install a
"ResizableShapeLabelEditPolicy" for the PRIMARY_DRAG_ROLE. This results
in having the possibility to resize the label, but resizing of the label
doesn't work at all. When i try to resize the label, the only thing that
changes is the location.

I would like to have that the label wraps, when the width of the label
is smaller than the length of the line.


I don't have any problems like these when have a label inside a figure
like an Rectangle. Then the size of the label just depends on the size
of its container. But i really don't get how i can achieve to let a
label for a link be resizable, that is not inside a container.


Best regards,
Arne

Hi Arne,

have you managed to resize your labels in the end? I seem to be having
the same problem...

Regards,
Chris
