Hi all,
Is it possible to create an Eclipse View with editing capabilities
provided by GEF ( to act as editor but in a view )?

The outline view is a good candidate to start with, since gef provide a
class to be embedded in the outline view (ContentOutlinePage). You can
do anything you'd do with an editor with it. However, it need to be
binded with an editor which will provide an instance of this class when
asked for a IContentOutlinePage through getAdapter(Class). Nevertheless,
it shows well that it is possible to create a view with editing
capabilities.

Other then the outline view, I think it could be pretty easy since
basically all you have to do is to set the control of the view with the
control of the gef viewer. I've never done this though...

Hi,

all you need to use GEF is an SWT Control...So you can use GEF with an
Eclipse View (ViewPart). Look at this example, that may help:

Cheers,
