Hi all,

I need get location (x,y) of node on diagram. Couse when i regenerate diagram i want to put this node to same location (i want to store location to model.)


I must transform one of my element via java as;

TextInput newElement = FormFactory.eINSTANCE.createTextInput();
				UIFieldElementUtil.copyOfUIFieldElement(newElement, element);
				parent.getOwnedObject().add(ECollections.indexOf(parent.getOwnedObject(), element, 0), newElement);

when i create newElement i want to set its location to element's location.

So i want to ask u how can i get view location and set view location ?

the notation view elements of edit parts store bounds. These give you the location. Also the figures of editparts store this information. It can happen that you need to translate the values to absolute positions.
