I spend the whole day for customizing the look of my nodes. Some things worked, where other things didn't. The following image should give you an overview what I want to achieve:


I tried already a lot of different things, but it doesn't seems to affect the look (except stuff like another border style..). This is an excerpt og my gmf graph, which Eugenia generates for me:


The upper image (Or) is the compartment for the below image (Feature, fooooo)


I achived the horizontal alignment with this piece of code:

// for horizontal alignment
ConstrainedToolbarLayout ctl = (ConstrainedToolbarLayout) result.getContentPane().getLayoutManager();
ctl .setHorizontal(true) ;

Any Idea how to apply my desired changes for the look?

Ok, I solved the problem with height by adding a prefered size attribute. The problem with this is that you have to define a x and y value. When the length of my label is now longer then the defined x value, the label will be cut.

Before I've defined a prefered size, the node (which is containin the label) was growing automatically to the right size. Is it possbile to get this behaviour back?
