For a given Sirius diagram, is it possible to somehow provide the user with some global settings or flags, which will then be used in the model to display information in one way or the other?

For example, I would like to provide the user with a single global flag (true or false) which will result in the label of certain element types to be shown in different ways.

I tried to use Layers, but it does not seem to be the right approach. All I want to change is the value of the label, depending on some global user setting.

Hello Jad,

I think the simplest way is to define a static attribute in a service class in Java for your need. I hope it works for you.

Best.

Hi

Thanks, but I am not exactly sure how to make use of such as service class.
It seems that the settings would then disappear once the session ends.

I was thinking of user preferences that can be maintained even when user restarts Eclipse. Something very similar to what Eclipse provides through Windows-->Preferences.
