Do you have a plan or workaround to add/get a text of a line using API?

I am trying to add a text over the line, and I understand that the current API do not support text over the line.


Two questions:

  1. Do you have a plan to add an API to control the text over the line?
  2. Do you have any workaround to add text?

I am currently trying to add an independent Text close to the Stickers.

Hi @Takeshi Mizumoto,


I have added this requirement into our backlog. This will be prioritized by our Product Managers for future developments. 

  1. I will come back to you when I have more information, this is not planned for the moment and not high in priorities
  2. The only work around I could think about would be to use a text widget and to place it on the line but it is not ideal especially if the line might be moved around… 

Hello @Anthony Roux 


Thank you! I understand. Until the implementation finishes, I will manage with the workaround.

Hello @Anthony Roux ,

It's been 10 months since your previous answer. Is there any news about getting text on a line via the API?

It would be very useful to be able to get a line’s label at least. In my case, I have got manually created diagrams so I can’t use the workaround by placing a text widget on the line to read it back later.
