Hi everybody,

I am banging the head against this so I will ask to the experts for advice.

What I would like to accomplish is quite simple: open a wikitext editor
on some data that comes from the network and that is stored, let's say,
in a custom object.

Using
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage().openEditor(...,
"org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.ui.editor.markupEditor"); doesn't seem a
good idea beacuse apparently it accepts only FileEditorInput inputs.

WikitextSourceEditor seems and AFAIU, I should extend it, setting a
custom document provider that will create documents from my custom
objects, register it in plugin.xml and call it with openEditor.

Could you please tell me if this is correct or if I am missing anything?

Are there examples about applications using Wikitext on custom
not-necessarily-file-stored data?

Thanks,
Fabio

I do not know how it works, but what you are describing is what Mylyn does in the Task Editor. To my mind the "New Comment" editor uses WikiText.

Maybe you can have a look there.

WikiTextSourceEditor is what you're looking for if you'd like to open an
editor using an IEditorInput. You should extend it and register your
class using the Eclipse org.eclipse.ui.editors extension point.
Unfortunately there are no examples of its use.

If you're interested in embedding a wikitext source editor somewhere
(ie: not using an IEditorInput) then you should have a look at
org.eclipse.mylyn.wikitext.tasks.ui.editor.MarkupTaskEditorExtension
which does this for the Mylyn task editor.
