Hello,

From my experience with Sirius I think that it would be nice for usability purposes to be able to open in a pop-up/wizard only the semantic tab of the Properties view (without the rulers or appearance) by double-clicking (using Double Click Descriptors I suppose) on an representation element (digram, table, tree...).

I read some documentation about opening eef wizard on double-click herehttps://www.eclipse.org/sirius/doc/viewpoint-eef.html#OpeningEEFwizardonadoubleclick, but I found it difficult to integrate with EEF. Can't one just make the semantic tab show up as is?

Regards

Hello,

A solution could be to create a Double-Click tool that will next
delegate the job to your own Service or Java Action (instead of the EEF
Java Action) that will open the properties view. Unfortunately, there is
no default Java Action provides by Sirius to open a properties view wizard.

Regards,

Florian

Hello and thank you for your help.

Do you think it would be easy to remove the semantic and style tabs in the properties view? I mean, why would the user want to change these settings? If there is a way to only have the semantic tab (ideally without the semantic label at all..) things would perhaps become more simple to the user.

Kind regards

Hello,

The Sirius EEF adapter provides an extension point to hide Sirius
built-in sections.

Take a look at the documentation in Sirius > Sirius Specifier Manual >
Using the Extended Editing Framework with Sirius > Optional tasks (tabs
optimization) > Hide Sirius built-in property sheet sections (and the
corresponding tabs)

Regards,

Florian

Good afternoon,

Thank you for the reference.
In which plugin.xml should I define those extension points?
The one from my specification plugin (the same containing the .odesign file)?

Regards
