This depends on what you really asking for. A graphiti editor normally
works by creating one or more diagram elements for each underlying model
element. This is done using add features, like what Andre suggested.
This code then ensures that child shapes for a child model element is
inserted into the parent shape for the parent model element. The
activation of add features can be triggered/called in several ways:
- from a create feature, to ensure a shape is created for a new model
- from an update feature, to ensure a shape is created for a more
element (that somehow appeared)
- from an add feature, usually for the parent, to ensure shapes for all
children are created
If you want to create model elements (automatically), you use create
features, but these are normally triggered by user actions, e.g.
dragging an element from the palette etc.
Hope this helps.
