    No. There were flirting between Barbara/Batgirl and Dick/Robin when they work together in Batman Family comic (Dick was a College student at that point). Tha was pre-CoIE.

    In Post-CoIE, Dixon will make a retcon, so Dick/Robin as a teenager has an unrequited crush on Barbara/Batgirl (which never happened in Pre-CoIE). They only develop a real relationship when they are adults.

    In Flashpoint, where Dick/Robin and Barbara/Batgirl start to fight crime as teenagers, we see they flirt in these adventures.

    There is no non-flashback stories with Dick as Robin post-CoIE.
    This is pre-CoIE:



    Dick was pretty much interested in her and they were close, but never had anything, they just flirting with each other.
    Also DC didn't really wanted this couple at the time.

    He did had a crush on her during his Robin days.



    Batman universe made a retrospective about their relationship here:

    Makes sense since like Tim Epps mentioned there she was too old and mature for him. At that time in that context a romantically relationship between the two would be very controversial.
