Preferred node size vs preferred node container size [message #1786496] Fri, 04 May 2018 12:23 Go to next message

Hi,

When I create a new element represented by a node-container, sirius auto-sizes the node-container nicely, so that it's content/labels are fully shown, but when I create an element represented by just a node, no auto-sizing is performed, and the labels are truncated with ellipsis.

I don't know why the container works well and the node not. Maybe I miss something in the description model, maybe there's a trick, maybe it's a sirius limitation?

Thanks for help.

Hello Felix,

It's a known problem, the only thing you can do is change the Size computation Expression in the Advanced tab of the style defined on node mapping.
This behavior can be explain because a container is an object that can contain other things, while the node can't contain anything.

Regards,

In other words, I have to compute the size myself. It doesn't sound logical that one size can be calculated by the runtime, and the other can't. I will have a look.

It may not be logical, but that's how it was implemented.
As I explain, it was planned for the container but not for the node. This is why for the container, the size is initialised by default by value -1 and for node by value 3.
