|Window Builder Custom Toolkit [message #758184]

I'm in the process of creating a new window builder UI toolkit for a custom ui library i wrote (My UI Toolkit should use the XML window builder model so equivalent to the UiBinder GWT plugin)
So i created a new eclipse plugin extending the main wb extension points and provided the following sample model and corresponding edit parts:
1- PanelInfo, PanelEditPart and PanelFigure for a panel object
2- ButtonInfo, ButtonEditPart and ButtonFigure for a button object
In these classes, i've implemented all the necessary methods (createFigure, getModelChildren, refreshVisuals, etc ...)
Then in my design page parser class, i built a PanelInfo object and added to it two ButtonInfo objects using the addChild method:
PanelInfo panelInfo = new PanelInfo(editorContext, panelInfo.createComponentDescription(editorContext), PanelInfo.createCreationSupport());
ButtonInfo buttonInfo = new ButtonInfo(editorContext, ButtonInfo.createComponentDescription(editorContext), ButtonInfo.createCreationSupport());
ButtonInfo buttonInfo1 = new ButtonInfo(editorContext, ButtonInfo.createComponentDescription(editorContext), ButtonInfo.createCreationSupport());
The problem i'm having is that only the panel object is being correctly displayed and not the buttons (The buttons appear as a black very small square on the panel top left edge).
If in my parser class, i only return a ButtonInfo object, that button is correctly displayed.
Could you tell me please what's wrong and how to fix this?

My UI Toolkit is not based on Swing, SWT or GWT, it's completly independent.|
Actually, I have a project with my own UI Toolkit. Then, I created some Widgets, Composites, etc. To facilitate the programation, I want to use a palette to generate the codes of th GUI.
So I want to create a plugin depends of windowbuilder.
For example, I have a project where I want to add a palette. So I select new Project Palette, I enter my project in the first section, but in the second section my UI Toolkit doesn't appear.
You know wich extension point is concerned?
Thaks for your time
PS: Where I can find a complete documentation on windowbuilder pro?
