Hi,

I don't want the label editor to be started when I insert a new symbol
in the diagram. How can I do that?

Thanks in advance,
Kalin

Hi,

I have found some solution - I use static variable to indicate if the
new object should be labeled immediately after insertion. The variable
is set in the CreateElementCommand (I need this since I show some dialog
box there which indicates if an existing object is added or a new one is
created). Then in the performDirectEdit() method of the edit part I
check if the static variable is set and the clear it so the next time
the object can be labeled with F2. This has 2 disadvantages:

1) It is not object oriented, this static variable is a patch.
2) I rely on the sequence in which doDefaultElementCreation() and
performDirectEdit are called.

Is there a better way to do a conditional run of the label editor on
newly create elements? Perhaps there is some way to transfer a flag or
something. I saw that in the source code the label editor is *always*
started for newly created elements.

Cheers,
Kalin
