Title: Event to provide project browser & traceability window w/ icon defined by addin
Post by: adepreter on April 20, 2019, 12:39:41 am
The traceability window is still ignoring MDG icons and this is confusing end users.

One generic way to solve it and to allow extensions at the same time is to provide an addin event that we can use to provide the icon that we need.
The icon could then also reflect the state of any element property or tagged value.

We wouldn't need any add-in events at all. EA already knows how these elements are supposed to look (it works in the project browser).
They simply have to use that mechanism in the traceability window as well.
