Hello there,

I customized my feature labels in the generated edit plugin via plugin.properties .
This doesn't always work as expected, however: Sometimes feature labels are used, sometypes type labels. So I looked at getCreateChildText() in the generated item providers and found that boolean qualify ignores some of my features.

How does the code generator determine whether features 'qualify' or not?

Martin,

It depends on whether the different features can share the same type of
instance.

Many thanks Ed,

now I see what all these features have in common: They aren't shared.
Do I have to modify their getCreateChildText() methods or is there another way to enforce qualify?

Martin,

There's no property to force the qualification, so changing the code is
the only way.

Thanks Ed,

Is there anything else I need to know when changing my code?
Why is qualification enabled only on shared features?

Martin,

So that the user doesn't just see duplicate entries with no idea why
they're different; they create the same type of object but for different
features.

Ed,

Thank you very much, now I understand.
I don't know if I'm the only one interested, wouldn't it be useful to have a genmodel option to control qualification?

Martin,

You mean to always produce qualification for all cases, never produce it
for any case, or produce it only for cases where there is ambiguity?
The issue seems related to

Ed,

yes, it's related. I would be happy with the solution shown in the mentioned bugzilla,
but I'd rather prefer a genmodel option to explicitly pick one of the three behaviors you mentioned.
