Custom Tooltips for Decorators [message #901795] Tue, 14 August 2012 15:29 Go to next message

Hey all,

Is there a way to create a custom tooltip for a decorator? I'm adding error/warning decorators to shapes and would like to (eventually) provide quick-fix capabilities. That said, my immediate problem is displaying multiple statuses for a single shape.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Rob

Rob,

currently Graphiti only supports strings as tooltips (in general for all
shapes, but also for decorators). There's an open enhancement request to
open that up: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=352115.

For now I would suggest to display the error text (in case of more than one
concatenated) as a tooltip on the decorator. The quick fix operation could
also be triggered by registering a quick fix custom feature and adding it to
the speed buttons that appear on hovering over the shape. Does that help
with the multi status thing?

Michael

Hey Michael,

Thanks for the response. I am concatenating the status text together and it doesn't look too bad. (I preface each line with " - " so it doesn't look like a big blob of text.)

Using a custom feature for quick-fix seems like a nice workaround. It will probably be a while before I get that fancy, so I'm good for now (just planning for the future).

Thanks again,
Rob
