Hi

I implement vex in a dialog.

I wonder if there is a way of getting a properties window with the attributes (or any other way to access attributes).

It's easy to access elements via the
org.eclipse.vex.ui.internal.handlers.AddElementHandler
but couldn't figure a way to access the attributes.

Many thanks

Shay.

Hi,

attributes are currently only editable in the properties view. There is nothing like the content assist for elements.

You may want to take a look at org.eclipse.vex.ui.internal.property.ElementPropertySource which gets the attributes for an element in the properties view.

The main points here are
final List<AttributeDefinition> attributeDefinitions = validator.getAttributeDefinitions(element);
to get all possible attributes for a given element and
element.getAttribute(attributeDefinition.getName()
which returns the value for an attribute.

Hope this helps to get you started, regards
Carsten
