Change the GUI caption of a meta attribute

Is it possible to change the GUI caption of a Enumeration meta attribute.

 

Current name is "Mode".

I want to change it to "" so that only the list will be displayed  (without the name of the metaattribute)

 

Thx

I think there is a way. I'll just have to check if I did this in the past.

 

You could try in the meantime to add this to the attribute concerned ,Name("") to see if the label is gone.

Stijn, thanks for your answer.

 

Do you mean trying to add ',Name("")' in front of my metaattribute, in the _parameterization setup of the Metapropertypage ?

 

If so, this turns red as a syntax error

no add it at the end of the specification for the attribute on the propertypage.

 

run a query to find examples

 

select metapropertypage where _parametrization like '#Name("")#'

Any idea how to change Date format from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyy?

 

Any help would be appriciated.

Re: Change the GUI caption of a meta attribute

the date format is determined by your localization parameters of the pc (control panel => region and language) I believe.

Hi,

 

About the GUI caption, try adding a backslash \ in front of the name of your megaattribute name.

 

For example, in application, you have metaattribute "Application Stereotype", rename it for "\Application Stereotype"

 

It is usually used to remove the end of a name (for example: My Data \Do not shot this part) But if you put it at the beginning, it should do the trick.

 

See image in example.

You can also specify the date format on the Language object.
