Preventing Display Of Elements In Session Explorer

rgoffena

Hi all,

 

Is there a way to prevent data elements from being displayed in Session Explorer?

 

Ball has a project where custom elements are displayed in the Elements tab of Session Explorer, but the users will never need to interact with those custom elements via Session Explorer.

Actually having these particular custom elements displayed in Session Explorer could even confuse or intimidate/discourage users from using Session Explorer.

 

Thanks for any info,

There is not a way to disable their display. You can make them children of another element and they will be hidden by default. Part of the reason for showing all data elements in the session explorer is to prevent orphaned elements. In the past we’ve had problems where elements became orphaned with no view, etc. The only way to clear them (so the dataset can be opened again for example) was to exit and restart the application. We may be able to put something in to make is more obvious that an element should not be deleted (such as graying it out…attempts to delete it would display a “nag box”). The other possibility is that you listen for element delete signals and if any element in your element set is deleted, remove all the elements and views (i.e. treat it as if the user had closed the main window for your data)

I believe in this case these custom elements are really services and should be changed over to singleton plug-ins.
