Hi

I can add a new line in a table view using a context menu (left side of the screenshot). But I can't do it in an empty table view (right side of the screenshot):

index.php/fa/37864/0/

Hello,

How did you add this contextual menu? Through custom code? Maybe it is a problem of context here as you have no selection the context should be set to the semantic root of the table.
You should also probably add "Create Line Tool" in your table description in order to have the same action in the main toolbar.

Best regards,
Steve

It is a standard contextual menu. I've just added a "Create Line Tool". I think the problem is that "Create Line Tool" is active only in a context of an existing line, and not available in the context of a whole table.

To reproduce the problem you can either open an empty table view (without any lines), or open any table view, don't select any lines, just right-click on a table:

index.php/fa/38034/0/

Hello,

I thought this could have been because of some custom code, but indeed, you are right, as the contextual action requires a context, you can't use it on an empty table. Meanwhile, I had a similar question on this post: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/1826903/#msg_1826903
You can check my answers there, but the idea is that, the "Create line" tool will have the same limitation concerning the contextual menu of an empty table, but the tools will be available in the main toolbar.

Best regards,
Steve
