Hi,

I have to create a new wizard plugin that integrates GMF Editor. I explain: in my wizard I'll have a button " model creation". When I click on it, it has to open GMF's editor so I can create a new model.
I am new in all this, and I really don't know how it can be done.
If there is any help I would be grateful Smile

Hi,

you could take a look at the code that is executed by the initialize diagram context menu entry that shows up when right clicking on an EMF model for which a GMF editor has been defined.

For all practical purposes, this will not be possible in 3.x (at least as far as true editors go). Eclipse4 allows for this exact situation, however we are still defining "editors" and GMF has not adopted Eclipse4 yet (for obvious reasons).

In order for something like this to work, whether an editor or a view, you would have to re-implement the GMF editor/view without extending from Edit/ViewPart. In which case, you really wouldn't be working with GMF any more but pure GEF.

So to answer your question, in Eclipse 3.x no, in Eclipse 4.x yes (but not right now).

Take care,

JD

Thank you Joseph,
Your answer was very helpful Smile

Now I've created my own GMF's editor, but I still have the same problem. I can't really understand the generated code and I still don't know which class to use , so I can call it to lanch the editor with my button.
