How to show a "map" in an editor [message #652184] Wed, 02 February 2011 17:28 Go to next message

I am trying to create an editor for an RCP app ( on Galileo 3.5.2) where users can visually see where they are in the process our application is trying to create.

The model of this application was written using EMF. In the model, there are tables that contain input data. When a user has filled in all the input data we want to be able to graphically represent that the input tables are complete and they can then run the model to produce output.

So in the editor there would be boxes and arrows representing the input tables, the model's action and the output tables. How would I go about displaying boxes and arrows and other types of graphical representations of logical structures? The users would like to be able left click/right click on the various screen elements to either run them or get more information.

I've used RCP for a few years but I've never had to create such elements. Can anyone point me in the right direction for further reading/research?

Thanks,

Jon

You can have a look at http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/gmp/

GMF tooling and runtime "...provides a model-driven approach to
generating graphical editors in Eclipse"
