Name field - disappeared from RTC 2.0 client


Kevin Zemanek (2454825) | asked Sep 10 '09, 10:39 p.m.
Context:

RTC 2.0
Eclipse client
Web client
Various custom attributes

We just upgraded from RTC 1.0.1.1 to RTC 2.0. We have added a number of custom attributes to different work items. Today I noticed that for at least 1 work item type the custom attributes "Name" field (basically the prompt) is no longer displayed in the Eclipse client - but it is on the web client.

Is anyone else seeing this issue?

Hi
In RTC 2.0, the 'label' of an attribute (or a presentation) is not shown when this presentation is the only one in a section - we assume that the section already describes its content. You can always override this behavior by adding a property to the presentation with key 'labelVisible' and value either 'true' or 'false'. The web and eclipse UI should be consistent, if they are not, please file a defect with a screenshot and if possible your process spec.

Thanks for the help.

Hmmm....in order to maintain release-to-release compatibility, shouldn't the key "labelVisible" and value "true" have been set by default as part of the update? This is an unexpected behavioral change.
