I have a problem working with a plugin, though I'm not entirely sure there is a solution.

I want to create a repository connector for which it is possible to configure the format of the items in the task list. I seem to have been able to do this by setting an read-only attribute called "SUMMARY" on the TaskData, which maps to TaskAttribute.SUMMARY. This attribute is built from the custom format the user has specified.

This works great, however the underlying task to have a real title. TaskAttribute.SUMMARY seems to map to the tasklist, and also the title of the task in the task editor, as well as part of the tooltip text. This means that the title in the editor is now read-only and can't be edited. I can't make this attribute read-write, as it is built from multiple fields, so wouldn't really map well back to the underlying object.

It there a way I can specify the title in the tasklist, separately from the title that is used in the editor, such that the title in the editor can be the raw underlying title, which is editable, yet the tasklist uses my compound custom title?

Thanks in advance for your help.
