Hi,

I am trying for not showing any default property tabs from BPMN2.0

I read in the following java file snippet for reference.

PropertyTabDescriptorProvider.java file there is code snippet
PropertyTabDescriptorProvider#getTabDescriptors(...){
...
for (PropertyTabDescriptor td : desc) {
// Note that the copy() makes the Tab Descriptor IDs and Section IDs unique.
// This is important because the TabbedPropertySheetPage uses these IDs to
// look up the Sections.
String rtid = td.getRuntimeId();
if (rtid==null || rtid.equals(TargetRuntime.DEFAULT_RUNTIME_ID) || rt.getId().equals(rtid)) {
if (td.getConfigFile()!=null && !rt.getId().equals(rtid))
// don't include Default Runtime tabs that were defined in a config file
// if this isn't the Default Runtime.
continue;
// what's left is just the Tab Descriptors defined by the current Target Runtime
// and the ones from the Default ("None") runtime.
replaced.add(td.copy());
}
}
...
}



How to create the config file?
The file is expected under project/.bpmnconfig folder. I searched a lot but couldnot figure out solution.

I don't want to show the default runtime tabs for UserTask,ServiceTask and StartEvent object.

Thank you in advance.

you can replace a default property tab by the plugin.xml using the attribute 'replaceTag'.

This is an example configuration replacing the default eventTab of an CatchEvent:

.....
<propertyTab
            class="MyPropertySection"
            id="myid"
            replaceTab="org.eclipse.bpmn2.modeler.commonEvent.tab"
            label="Demo"
            runtimeId="my.runtime"
            type="org.eclipse.bpmn2.CatchEvent">
</propertyTab>
....

Hi Ralph,

Thank you for your quick response.

Replacement of Property tabs works as you have mentioned, but order of Tabs is not correct quite a few times.

Say for an example,
Defintions object has 5 property tabs. I want to show only 2 property tabs. So I can replace only 2 property tabs, but 3 property tabs still visible. I don't want to show any additional property tabs.

Let me know if there is a way to solve this problem.

Thanks
-Rakesh

Hi Rakesh,

no I don't think you can remove a existing property tab, because there is no extension behavior defined for.
@Bob: did you think this is possible?

A reason why you have 'to much' properties can be the profile type. You can switch to another profile or define you own profile to reduce the behavior of the modeler. See the tutorial here: https://wiki.eclipse.org/BPMN2-Modeler/DeveloperTutorials/ToolPalettes

Additional information how to implement property tabs can also be found here: https://wiki.eclipse.org/BPMN2-Modeler/DeveloperTutorials/CustomPropertyTabs

Thank you again for your quick response..

Can I go ahead and add this kind of behavior? I will define my profile and try to reduce the feature ennoblement and see if problem solved.

And challenging part is order of tab for custom model after it replaced.

Hi Ralph,
ModelEnablement has solved problem of TabOrder, though it is not the perfect way, but it is working out.
