hi,

i am new in emf technologies, so i don´t know where to start. i got some basic introductions, i did some tuts and examples.

Now i want to start to create an GMF Editor. This gmf editor has 1 view, which i use to draw some basic shapes and export this as an svg Image.

http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.modeling.gmf/m sg02104.html
In this case there is no semantic model here. But i want to display some Properties like Position, Color, Border and so on.

Are there some EMF technologies what i am able to use, like EEF for my property views?

thanks,

thomas

Thomas,

I'm not sure how EEF interacts with the tabbed properties view used by
GMF... Have you followed one of the GMF tutorials yet?

Hi,

You can use EEF with GMF tabbed properties views. With GMF 1, you just
have to check "GMF specific properties views" in the Gen Edition Context
properties in the eefgen file, with GMF 2, check "Generic properties
views descriptors" and set the "descriptors contributorID", the
contributor ID of the properties views.

Cheers,

i followed some tutorials, but i think its too early for me to use eef! But there is 1 Question,

I need to export my editor (just 1 with simple shapes) as a svg or pdf file. if right-click on my editor there is a context menu called "File" -> "Save as Image". I need this action (or whatever it is) also in my Menu "File"->"Save as Image" just for a better usability.

Thanks for the reply

Hi,

i generated the eef code with "GMF specific properties views"
however, what should be done next? how it should be incorporated with the generated .diagram project? I tried to replace the code generated in the xxx_properties.plugin.xml with the sections corresponding to them in the diagram's
plugin.xml and changed the contributorId, but I got an exception, so I am almost sure i did something wrong.
If you know if there is a tutorial for this one as the one now existing, but for GMF, it will be great. Thanks a lot !

I think you use the 0.8 version of EEF and the generated GMF specific
properties views was experimental.

Can you try try with the 0.9 version of EEF avaiable here :
http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/emft/eef/updates/milest ones/0.9

In this version you haven't difference between standard generation and
GMF generation. The only think you have to do is to ensure that the
descriptor contributor ID (attribute of you Gen Edition Context in the
eefgen model) is the same that your GMF tabbed property sheet
contributor ID.

> If you know if there is a tutorial for this one as the one now existing,

If you want to keep the 0.8 version can you give me the entire stack
trace please ?

Hi Goulwen ,

thank you

the previous time I was indeed using 0.8 version and I was getting the following error:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui.views.properties.tabbed 4 2 2011-04-13 00:51:25.750
!MESSAGE Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in: "org.eclipse.ui.views.properties.tabbed".
!STACK 0
java.lang.NullPointerException
at se.kth.ics.eat.abstractmodeler.diagram.prm.properties.PrmFor malismBasePropertySection.setInput(PrmFormalismBasePropertyS ection.java:90)

Now I updated to 0.9 and I am getting an error on generation. In the org.blabla.properties package generated, it generates the following line:

IPropertiesEditionProvider provider = PropertiesEditionComponentService.getInstance().getProvider( eObject);

and says those cannot be resolved as types. I saw that they are removed from the 0.9 implementation,so I am really surprised how come it generates that code. Actually, at the first generation it says that there is a problem and the classes from this package are out of sync with the file system. Please,give me advise what to do next.

Regards, Stanislav

Hi stanislav,

It seems that you generate your properties code with EEF 0.9 but you
want to use it with a platform on EEF 0.8. It's the only reason why you
can have such a bug.

Hi Goulwen,

I am not quite sure if you understand what happened in my case.
I removed the old EEF 0.8 and installed the 0.9 version (Helios, GMF 2.1)
Then in a new workspace i added the *.genmodel file and generated the code with only the "GMF specific views" option, added the contributorId and generated the code. For generation I am sure it uses 0.9 as it goes times faster than the 0.8 generation. Then the generated files in the *.properties files contain all the same error.
I tried to generate them for the normal editor project and they work perfect.
I also put into comments the errorous code and then I saw that GMF run those files.

Is EEF dependant on the EMF version used to generate the *.genmodel? (not probable, but still)
Or maybe for the GMF generation I need to use something more?


Thank you very much again,

Regards, Stanislav

Ok, I see the problem, the "GMF specific views" option is deprecated now
:) It generates an invalid code. Just uncheck this option, regenerate
and use the standard "PropertiesEditionsSection" in your GMF modeler.

Thank you for your answer.
I did what you told me, but I am not sure what do u mean with "and use the standard "PropertiesEditionsSection" in your GMF modeler."

At first, I just added what was in the generated prm_properties.plugin.xml
on the place of the corresponding sections in the diagram plugin.xml

This did not work as I expected, as I haven't fulfilled what you said : "and use the standard "PropertiesEditionsSection" in your GMF modeler."
I saw that someone had similar problem:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&goto=50364 2&

so I added the filter to the properties sections in the xml like that:

<propertySection
class=" org.eclipse.emf.eef.runtime.ui.properties.sections.Propertie sEditionSection "
filter=" org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.properties.filters.ShapeE ditPartPropertySectionFilter "
id="prm.section.PrmAttribute"[
tab="Base">
<input
type="prm.PrmAttribute">
</input>
</propertySection>

This however works partly. Only for some modeled classes.
So, I guess I am doing the thing in a wrong way.

Can you please be more specific?

Thank you again in advance,

Regards, Stanislav

Hi,

I have the same problem property sheet. Is it important to replace some content the plugin.xml in the .diagram project by the one generated by EEF ?
Where the EEF model has to be generated ?

Thanks.
