For me, I can't use GefEditor#directEditType() because it sends a
default selection event. I need to do some validation before the default
selection is sent, so here's what I do instead:
SWTBotText textControl = gefEditor.bot().text();
Of course, I have this wrapped in an helper method.
Now, if you want to edit a child of an edit part, then you would have to do:
SWTBotGefEditPart child = editPart.children().get(0);
Helper.edit(child, gefEditor, newExpression);

For this you won't need the gef component. It is simple SWTWorkbenchBot
work: get the view (Properties), activate/show it, search for widgets
inside it, do some edition.
Hope this helps.
