I am trying to open a GMF editor from another GMF editor. both of these GMF editors are in different Ecore models and packages. Can anyone help me to solve this problem. For eg: I want to open GMF editor(2) from right click of an element in GMF editor(1) .GMF editor(1) is from df.ecore and GMF2 editor(2) is from df1.ecore.

Hello,

The detailed steps are described at the Diagram Partitioning - Usecase 2 "different type" article.

Regards,
Michael

Thanks for the reply.
I cannot use the diagram partitioning because there is no link from df to df1 and I cannot change the existing design. Both the ecore files are independent of each other. Is it possible to have such kind of functionality of opening a GMF editor from another editor which are independent of each other. Please anyone help me out with this.

Hi Michael,

Diagram partitioning does not really work in my case because I have a constraint that I cannot change the design of the ecore model, which means there is no relationship from df to df1.

But there is a reference relation from df1 to df. Is it possible to open the diagram of df1 from the diagram of df.


Regards,
SPRao

Hello,

To my understanding this is not actually GMF question.

If your problem is that you can't find "interesting" df1 elements based on choosen df-element, I would suggest you to do either of the following:

- change metamodel to add readonly transient references intp df which are opposite to the references of interest from df1 to df
- use EMF Search component
- implement micro-search manually, by traversing all of the important DF1 resources, and caching their outgoing references pointed to DF instances

However, once again, to my understanding this is not specifically GMF problem -- you would face the same issue working with only the Tree editors, without any GEF at all.

Regards,
Michael
