Hi all,

I want to integrate the property sheet generated by EMF.Edit in my Graphiti editor. However, neither the tutorial nor the example projects contain any example how to do this, and the method described in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=357632 does not work any more due to API changes. If someone already has managed to solve this, could (s)he provide the working relevant source code and plugin.xml excerpts?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dénes,

I've had a similar problem some time ago. I ended up using EEF (tutorial for Graphiti: http://eclipsercpdev.blogspot.com/2011/10/use-eclipse-eef-as-property-sheet-for.html) which works well even now with new API changes. Only problem is that you cannot make a property widget for any containment with upper bound 1. This is a major problem form me and now I'm considering switching to hand written prop sheets or some sort of integration of these two.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Vladimir

Hi Vladimir,

thanks for your reply! I also tried EEF, but when I Initialize EEF models from my genmodel, the generation throws an exception, which is kind of a showstopper issue, that's why I want to go with the good old EMF.Edit-generated code.
