Hi,

I have generated my genmodel out of the Ecore.

The attribute "Label Feature" is set to "name:EString" by default.
But I want it to be another attribute, e.g. "shortName:EString".

Is there a way to do it for all elements using a script ? I don't want to set it by hand because the genmodel has several hundred elements.

Thanks

No, you'd have to write it using Java. Perhaps a object action you can
install in the IDE and apply to the GenModel.

Do you have so many different features called shortName?

Matthias,

Maybe doing a global search and replace on the XML using the text editor
will make it easy to do quickly.

Yeah maybe I could use a search and replace pattern.
But is there no way using a M2M transformation ?!

Matthias,

No doubt you can do some type of M2M thing, but you this isn't the M2M
newsgroup and I don't know how to do that.
