n an independent ViewPart I managed to get the EObjectNode selected in the OutlineView. I now need to get the EObject it refers to but I can't see how.

Hi,

have a look at org.eclipse.xtext.ui.editor.outline.impl.AbstractOutlineNode.readOnly(IUnitOfWork<T, EObject>)

I have seen the object selected in the outline is a AbstractOutlineNode.
I can't see how to use the readonly method to get the related EObject. I understand from some blogs i found on the Internet that IUnitOfWork i used to get an EObject from the DSL editor. Is it exploitable to this purpose as well? How should I used it?

Thanks for your kind help

Regards

No,

i just help you to do work on it.

if you want to process it further.

(1) your iresourcesetprovider to obtain a resourceset for the project
(2) ask the resourceset for a resource with the objects uri (with trimmed fragment)
(3) use to get the object from the resource with org.eclipse.emf.ecore.resource.Resource.getEObject(String) and the fragment

This is the answer I was looking for

if (selection instanceof IStructuredSelection) {
        Object first = ((IStructuredSelection)selection).getFirstElement();
        EObjectNode enode = (EObjectNode)first;
        ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
        Resource inResource = resourceSet.getResource(enode.getEObjectURI(),true);
        MyEcoreElement element = (MyEcoreElement)inResource.getEObject(enode.getEObjectURI().fragment());
        //....  
 }


Regards

Hi

No. Christian told you about IUnitOfWork, which is fundamental to
correct use of Xtext. (Xtext doesn't use URIs just to make your life
difficult; it's to protect you from unsafe access to the EObjects. The
IUnitOfWork provides the safe access.)

At best your approach requires a model reload; it may not be a loadable URI.

At worst you get a stale copy.
