Hello everyone,

I am currently developing a GUI using for a rapid prototyping tool using graphiti, and I have a question about anchors.

My question is: is it possible to activate the directEditing of a text encloses in an BoxRelativeAnchor?
Indeed, as shown in the image below, in my GUI each "port" has a label, and I would like to make it editable using a direct editing feature.

index.php/fa/12012/0/

I already tried to add a direct editing feature, similarly to what's done in the Graphiti tutorial, but it seems that the getDirectEditingFeature of the feature provider is simply not called when I click on the label of my port.

Is there a solution ?

Thanks for your help,

Karol

Karol,

I don't think this is possible currently. Anchors are not real shapes (what
turned out in the meantime to be a not so good design decision...) so it
would probably need some extra code in the Graphiti framework to enable
direct editing on anchors. A workaround could be to place an extra shape
with the text just besides the anchor.

Would you please file an enhancement bugzilla for the feature request for
direct editing of anchor texts?

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your answer, sorry for my very late reaction, I was very busy and had to put aside the development of my GUI.
I just created an enhancement request on bugzilla, it is the first time I do that so I hope everything is OK.

Thanks,

Karol
