I have a Graphiti diagram representing scientific functions as rectangle. Each function has a Latex documentation. The user can change the documentation with a dialog box. When the dialog is closed, a "png" image is generated from the Latex entry. Is it possible to display this image into the rectangle representing the function ?
I try to use the ImageProvider but images have to be packaged with the plugin and the ImageProvider looks for images only in the plugin path. In my case, images are generated at runtime, during the use of my graphiti editor. I can build an swt image but not a Graphiti one. Any Idea ?

I haven't tried that, but IAbstractImageProvider has a method
addImageFilePath that you can access from your own subclass. It should also
be possible to add images at runtime (but not to remove them again).
Thanks for your help.
I have tried this method but the path must be relative to the plugin.
It seems that you can't load an image from the runtime project home (the project used by the user of the plugin).
