I've customized my palette icons with large and small icons, but these changes do not seem to carry over to the model assistant popup menu. Should they? If not, how can I make the popup menu use my new icons and names. I did see a reference to gmf best practices slides at eclipsezilla but the link is broken. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi,

as far as my experience is this should happen automatically. However if you want to debug what is happening you can set a breakpoint in PopupBarEditPolicy.

Hello Nick,

GMF uses the icons of the ElementTypes and not of the Palette for the Modeling Assistant. You can change them in your plugin.xml.

Regards,

Andreas

Hi,

maybe it could even be as simple that you can exchange the icons in your generated .edit plugin. But I am not 100% sure about that.

Thanks. I made the changes in the plugin but it doesn't seem to work. I noticed that even when I put a bad path in for the icon path I don't get any error. Similarly, when I change the name properties in plugin.properties these names are ignored as well.

thanks,

Nick
