Hello,
I have an EditPart I need to alter its location and background color.
I have managed to alter its location using:

	ChangeBoundsRequest request = new ChangeBoundsRequest(RequestConstants.REQ_MOVE);
		request.setEditParts(editPart);
		request.setMoveDelta(newLocation);

		Command cmd = editPart.getCommand(request);
		if (cmd != null && cmd.canExecute()) {
			cmd.execute();
		}


I have managed to alter the background color by:
editPart.getContentPane().setBackgroundColor(color);


But whenever I close and re open the application,the color changes I made goes away!

How can I commit the background color !

Hi Fatla,

you can change the background color of the figure by using the default diagram actions, via the diagram-menu entries or the colorappearancepropertypage.
Either actions trigger commands to alter the settings within the editpart's notation model. This way, the information get's persisted and is present after diagram-reopening.
If you just change the color by setting the editparts resp. figure's background manually, this change will not be persisted.

Regards
Thomas

Yes you are right about persistence.
I have manged to alter the location using the "ChangeBoundsRequest".

What kind of commands can I use to alter the color !
