EMF Edit ItemProvider getText method always returns a default string? [message #1468052] Mon, 10 November 2014 14:35 Go to next message

Hello,

I a have an Xcore (1.3) model and I am generating Edit code from it, too.
When I look in one of the generated ItemProvider classes the method getText is generated as follows:

	@Override
	public String getText(Object object) {
		String label = ((GroupViewMappingDescription)object).getName();
		return label == null || label.length() == 0 ?
			getString("_UI_GroupViewMappingDescription_type") :
			getString("_UI_GroupViewMappingDescription_type") + " " + label;
	}


When the label is empty a default string is return which is fine, but why is the label prefixed with a default string in the other case?

Can I do something about that behaviour (which I find strange by the way) without touching the generated classes?

Thanks
Jan Rosczak

Jan,

No, that's just the way it is...
