Hi,

i have a problem:
I have created a graphical editor using GMF. Now i want to make it possible to create new elements via a button instead of drag and drop via the palette.
I have no idea where i have to add the button for creating new elements and how the elements can be created.
The elements should be visible in the diagram after pressing the button!

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
Philipp

Hi,

to create such a model element you can use CreateUnspecifiedTypeRequest http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/rsahelp/v7r0m0/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.gmf.doc/reference/api/runtime/org/eclipse/gmf/runtime/diagram/ui/requests/CreateUnspecifiedTypeRequest.html . This is what the tools in the palette also use. The main question is now where you want to place the button for adding your new model elment.

Hi Ralph,

thank you!
The button should appear below the palette.

Best regards,

Philipp
