Hi,

I'm working with a fairly large EMF model where we do not want any "creation icons" to be generated (those in <edit>/icons/full/ctools16). So I went ahead and set the "Edit > Creation Icons" property in the genmodel to false. By the way, we are not using the any creation commands, so the "Edit > Creation Commands" is also set to false.

But when I re-generate the edit-code, every ItemProvider gets the following override:

    /**
     * <!-- begin-user-doc -->
     * <!-- end-user-doc -->
     * @generated
     */
    @Override
    protected boolean shouldComposeCreationImage() {
        return true;
    }

This sort of defeats the purpose of setting the property to false, since now I have to override this to return false in every ItemProvider.

This behavior seems to have appeared in EMF 2.6 and later.

Are there anyway of avoiding this, i.e. not getting the shouldComposeCreationImage method overide?

Thanks,
--Fredrik

This just means that when it needs creation icons, it will compose them
from the icons of the objects themselves...

Is there really a problem or are you assuming it's a problem?

Thanks for the quick response.
I was just assuming that it was a problem - sorry about that Wink

Now done the change and gotten rid of the extra icons.

Thanks,
--Fredrik
