Title: Show stereotypes in browser
Post by: Uffe on September 24, 2020, 08:30:39 pm
Hello,


There is an option to show or hide stereotype names in the browser window. It would be useful if this were more fine-grained.

At present, you can only switch it on/off globally. I'd like to be able to select
... sterotype presentation independently of one another. (So checkboxes, not a dropdown list.)

And yes, diagrams do have stereotypes although they're not commonly used. But they're in the metamodel, and should be available for presentation.
Default off, I'd suggest.


It could also be useful to introduce another special attribute to the «metaclass» class in profile models, something like _HideStypeBrowser. This would hide the stereotype name in the browser (regardless of the switches above).
Possibly it could be interpreted in conjunction with the «stereotype» class icon attribute, so that you could only perma-hide a stereotype name in the browser if you have specified an icon for the stereotype.

Kind of thing?
