EMF Compare/Specifications/FiltersConfiguration

Evolution Specification: Filters Configuration

Summary: Provide a way for user to enable/disable filters.


Each time EMF Compare UI is launched, the same filters are activated. It would be nice if the user could disable/enable filters.

  • When a user select/unselect a filter in EMF Compare UI.
