Edward added a ShowTypes attribute, that when dragged in to a model, annotates
the ports with the types.

In vergil, go to the left hand actor pane and do Utilities -> Analysis -> ShowTypes

In Kepler, Tools -> Instantiate Attribute

Unfortunately, a green box without a name shows up, there is another bug for this:
bug #4903

There are many Ptolemy components not in the Kepler library; see bug #5589. It would be good to know which ones are appropriate for Kepler so they can all be added at once.

#2 Updated by Daniel Crawl over 9 years ago

ShowTypes has been added to the actor library.

As with instantiating manually, dropping it on the canvas results in a green box without a name.

I'm tentatively closing this bug. If people feel strongly that the default behavior of this actor should be that the label is visible, then I can reopen the bug and change it accordingly.

#4 Updated by Christopher Brooks over 9 years ago

I reopening this, the bug is that the ShowTypes attribute is not labeled
when it is dragged in the canvas inside Kepler.

In Kepler instantiating the ShowTypes attribute with
Tools -> Instantiate Attribute

also results in an icon with a wrench that has no name.

However, in vergil when I drag the ShowTypes icon it, it says Show Types.

This illustrates a generic bug that occurs with attributes in Kepler.

To close this bug, in Kepler the ShowTypes attribute should have its name

#7 Updated by Sean Riddle over 9 years ago

Fixed in commit r30795. The original cyan-colored Ptolemy icon should be visible when the actor is drag-instantiated from the library.
