I’ve often day-dreamed about a nice-to-have in the EMF editor: the icons for EReferences showing containment.
(Ignore my choice to not center-justify the text in the icon as is done in the original, I could go either way on that.)
The five properties I change the most often on EReferences are: Name, EType, Lower Bound, Upper Bound and Containment. The first two are shown in the text of the EReference item, the next two in the icon, and containment… nowhere.
Am I alone in thinking it would be nice to have this information be conveyed in the icon?
Edit: Hallvard wrote in this post’s comments that perhaps the arrow I created should be for the non-containment. I’ll let others have the debate about what the icons should be. I simply wanted to put out there the idea of different icons for containment and non-containment. I could probably get used to whatever the choice might be.
