Hi there! My first post. I'm starting my editor in gef, and I came across the following problem: how to display rulers on my editor? I've read API documentation about Ruler Composite and Ruler Provider and it seem's pretty easy to implement all the logics that have to me done. But i can't simply display the rullers, they won't show. I don't understand, should an empty Ruler Composite dispay a 'basic' empty ruler? Here is my code:

public class VisualEditor extends GraphicalEditorWithFlyoutPalette {

	RulerComposite rulerComp;
	
	public VisualEditor() {
		setEditDomain(new DefaultEditDomain(this));
	}

	@Override
	protected void initializeGraphicalViewer() {
		super.initializeGraphicalViewer();
		getGraphicalViewer().setContents(ContentHelper.getDummyRoot());
	}
	
	@Override
	protected void configureGraphicalViewer() {
		super.configureGraphicalViewer();
		getGraphicalViewer().setEditPartFactory(new VisualEditPartFactory());
		getGraphicalViewer().setProperty(RulerProvider.PROPERTY_RULER_VISIBILITY, true);

	}

	@Override
	protected PaletteRoot getPaletteRoot() {
		return new VisualEditorPalette();
	}

	@Override
	public void doSave(IProgressMonitor monitor) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub

	}

	protected void createGraphicalViewer(Composite parent) {
		rulerComp = new RulerComposite(parent, SWT.NONE);
		super.createGraphicalViewer(rulerComp);
		rulerComp.setGraphicalViewer((ScrollingGraphicalViewer) getGraphicalViewer());

		
	}

	protected Control getGraphicalControl() {
		return rulerComp;
	}
}

Hi Dark Diver,

looking at the Logic example, I thing you should provide a ruler provider:

LogicRuler ruler = getLogicDiagram().getRuler(PositionConstants.WEST);
RulerProvider provider = null;
if (ruler != null) {
	provider = new LogicRulerProvider(ruler);
}
getGraphicalViewer().setProperty(RulerProvider.PROPERTY_VERTICAL_RULER, provider);
		
ruler = getLogicDiagram().getRuler(PositionConstants.NORTH);
provider = null;
if (ruler != null) {
	provider = new LogicRulerProvider(ruler);
}
getGraphicalViewer().setProperty(RulerProvider.PROPERTY_HORIZONTAL_RULER, provider);
