Hi,

I have a complex (Bean) model like:

MainObject
- childSingleA
- grandChildMany1
- grandChildMany2
- ...
- childManyA
- childManyB
- childSingleB
- grandChildSingle1
- grandChildMany3
- ...
- ...

All the childs must be shown inside a TreeViewer.

A good approach to get all the childs from a class, I think, is to work
with a combination of DelegetingListProperty and MultiListProperty.

This works well, with all multi child relations.

But how can I also add my single childs into the list of child nodes of
the treeviewer?

Greetings
Heiko

In the factory you can return a WritableList and do the list updateing
yourself.

Hi Tom,
thanks for your fast answer. I have seen such factory example with an
own factory implementation in one of your older blog posts, but it was
not my preferred way.

Even after my post I look into the IListProperty implementations and
based on these, I build my own "SingeltonListProperty", and it works
well at the moment.

Maybe this is a good extension to the existing classes, or should one of
the consisting expand this possibility.

But you're the professional, what do you say?

Greetings
Heiko
