Popup-list for different relations [message #946904] Tue, 16 October 2012 16:10 Go to next message

Hi everybody,

I'm a student using Eclipse to make a graphical editor for my masters thesis and as such am an Eclipse-amateur.

My graphical editor has 3 nodes: Goals, Actors and Operations.
Actors can be linked to Goals with a 'Responsibility' relationship.
Actors can be linked to Operations by one of 4 possible different relationships.

Because my tool has to be as userfriendly as possible, i use a single 'Relationship' creation tool in my Palette.

My problem is that i don't know how to let eclipse present me a popup-list with the 4 possible links to choose from when creating a relationship between an Actor and an Operation in the graphical editor.

I've heard it would have something to do with the ModelingAssistant, but haven't got a clue know how to tackle this problem.

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi,

if your meta model and mapping model are right you should not have to progam anything to reach this. Do you have 4 different connections in your meta model and for each a link mapping in your mappin model?

Thanks for the reply Ralph,

when it didn't work at first i tried enumerations and using relationships as seperate classes, but i went back to 4 simple references and now it works indeed!

Many thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon,

I've got the same problem like you first had. Can you maybe explain in a more detailed way how you have resolved this? Maybe you can show me your diagram?

Cheers,
Phil

Hi Phil,

maybe you could open a new thread describing you problem so that it can be solved.
