WrappingLabel question [message #235915] Fri, 10 July 2009 09:51 Go to next message

Hi all

I have some editparts that just contain one label to display the name of a
model element. This label is generated as WrappingLabel and shows up just
fine.
But, unfortunately, the label seems to fill the whole figure of the
containing editpart's figure, so when I resize the figure, the label
inside resizes with it, so it always takes up the whole figure space.

How can I tell the label to only take up as much space as it really needs
for its icon and text? I want the rest of the containing figure to be
"free space" so I could see its background and click or double-click on it
(e.g. for opening sub-diagrams).

Thanks for any hints

Hi Norbert,

Perhaps you can set a maximum size dimension on your label in the gmfgraph definition.
