Reply to: ShowEditButtonInAttributeInspector and list of possible values in DTDJuly 17, 2017 at 10:12 pm
What you are asking for is not currently possible with any release up to and including the current release of XMetaL Author Essential and Enterprise (12). For enumerated attributes it has been assumed there would be no need to provide an additional UI. But perhaps you have a special use case that shows it is needed.
So, with the current design you would need to change the declaration for the attribute to be something other than an enumerated list of values.
What do you need to display in a custom UI that the drop down list does not provide? If you can provide some detail perhaps I can translate that into a feature request for an upcoming release (ie: earliest possible version would be 13). The more detail the better.
If you prefer not to discuss this here (perhaps there is some corporate or other information you cannot share that would help us understand) then please submit a feature request through XMetaL Support.
