Is it possible to replace the circled-letter with an <<interface>> stereotype?

asked Nov 14 in Question / help by Omar Assadi
I was wondering if there is any way to switch from the circled "I" for interfaces with a stereotype instead. At the moment, I've sort of done an ugly hack of "hide circle" followed by "interface IObjectSerializer <<interface>> { ... }".

Alternatively, is there any way to define a procedure that will let me automate this a bit more? Or is it possible to alias the "interface" keyword with my own that already has the stereotype?

To be honest your 'hack' is already pretty minimal, you turn off circles once, and then add <<interface>> to each interface - seems a reasonable payoff for your end result.

However, you could write this macro:

!unquoted procedure interface($i)
interface $i <<interface>>
!endprocedure

Which would let you write your interface as:

interface(IObjectSerializer)

Note that instead of "hide circle" which hides circles for everything you can use "hide interface circle" to only hide it for interfaces, or "hide <<interface>> circle" to only hide for your interface stereotype.
