TaggedValues again

Hello,
When I add a tagged value programatically, like this:


if(model.getTaggedValues()==null)
  model.setTaggedValues(IModelElementFactory.instance().createTaggedValueContainer());
ITaggedValue tv = model.getTaggedValues().getTaggedValueByName(name);
if(tv == null) {
  IModelElementFactory.instance().createTaggedValue();
  tv = model.getTaggedValues().createTaggedValue();
  tv.setName("ParticularTaggedValueName");
  model.getTaggedValues().addTaggedValue(tv);
}
tv.setValue("ParticularTaggedValueValue");

it works, but there are problems with displaying Tagged Values tab in specification window. Is it something wrong in my code?

Jacek

Hi again Jacek,

I will talk to our engineers about your questions regarding plugin. I will come back to you as soon as possible.

Hello Jacek,

We have checked your code, and have several comments.

if(tv == null) {
   // this is meaningless (just create, no one has ref to the tagged value)
   IModelElementFactory.instance().createTaggedValue();
   tv = model.getTaggedValues().createTaggedValue();
   tv.setName("ParticularTaggedValueName");

   // This is meaningless as well because "tv" is created by 
   // TaggedValueContainer.createTaggedValue(), 
   // so "tv" is added into Container while create.
   model.getTaggedValues().addTaggedValue(tv);
 }

Although there are some statements that seems to be meaningless, we do not find any problem with displaying tagged values tab. Could you explain more, perhaps with screenshots, to show what the problem is?

Best regards,
Jick

Of course, you’re right. These lines are meaningless.
Should be:

			if(rm.getTaggedValues() == null) {
				rm.setTaggedValues(IModelElementFactory.instance().createTaggedValueContainer());
			}
			ITaggedValue tv = rm.getTaggedValues().getTaggedValueByName("ParticulerTaggedValueName");
			if(tv == null) {
				tv = rm.getTaggedValues().createTaggedValue();
				tv.setName("ParticulerTaggedValueName");
			}
			tv.setValue("ParticulerTaggedValueValue");

It’s difficult to show screenshots, because the tagged values tab simply does not appear.
The problem occurs only when creating new TaggedValueContainer.
