Access an attribute label (set in the editor) from a java extension


Philipp H (53214) | asked Aug 23 '16, 9:18 a.m.
 Hi everybody,

I wrote a java server extension that checks if a linktype/reference field is filled.
Now I want to send the user an error message and would like to make it say
"Field is not set".
But how can I access the label of the field? (label set in the editor)


Thanks!

(Oh and also this will be my last question, so thank you all for your support, you were a giant help. Especially you Ralph :) )

I wrote a file with the ids and their aliases and put it in a HashMap<id,alias>.
That works too.

I would try com.ibm.team.workitem.common.model.IAttribute.getDisplayName()

Good luck Philipp.

 Ok that works,

would you know the equivalent for Linktypes?

Because com.ibm.team.links.common.registry.IEndPointDescriptor.getDisplayName() only gives me the name that's in the linktype plugin/extension and not the label from the editor

Sorry, no idea then. I tried the same path, but don't have a testbed.
