Disable Lable UI

Joachim Suehlo
I read it anywhere, but I can't find it anymore:
Is there a way to disable some of the standard UI panes of the label tool by GDL commands?

I think the only panel in the Label Settings Dialog you can affect by GDL commands is the "Symbol Label Custom Settings" panel. What you see there is defined in the User Interface Script of the Label.

Thank You Laszlo,
I found it now: it is in the compatibility options, see image.
It disables the Text Style Tab

Hi Joachim

There are many other UI elements that can be controlled via optional fixed named parameters. Especially frame control and orientation options:

But how can I prevent the label of having a pointer?
You cant just LOCK "LABEL_HAS_POINTER" (or hide).... even with the option Jochen found above.

Sorry runxel, that's not possible. You can give a 2d text feedback to the user to please turn it off or on.
