Hi,

I have the following problem:
A diagram contains packages which itself contain multiple classes and interfaces. If I initialize the diagram file via "Initialize XXX model diagram" all elements are arranged in one long horizontal line.

What I want is to arrange packages horizontal, but the contained classes and interface in a package vertical. (Maybe it will be nice to have one vertical list for the classes and a second one for interfaces next to this.)

Can anybody please tell me how to implement this behavior?

Thanks.

I tried to register the TopDownProvider via extension point org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.layoutProviders.
But the class only calls the super method and the result is exactly the same. I also tried to overwrite "layoutTopDown", but the method is never called.
I found out that in "layoutEditParts" the call of "createGraphLayout().visit(g);" relayout everything.

Can anybody help me please.

How can I arrange my diagram nodes in a top down fashion?
