Draw2d for UML sequence diagram lifelines [message #206599] Wed, 04 January 2006 08:43 Go to next message

Hello,

I am working on a sequence diagram editor which is able to show diagrams
like UML sequence diagrams. FOr this I wanted to use GEF with Draw2d.
But I cannot find a full coverage documentation for Draw2d.

Especially which figures to use for which purpose would be very helpful.
I have especially problems with rendering the lifelines. I thought I
might be able to use a label together with a polyline, however, this
does not work.

Does anybody has hints to helpful documentation or maybe has already
imlpemented a sequence diagram editor and can give me help ?

Thanks in advance,
Lars Ehrler

Maybe I can solve my problem, however, I need to calculate the size of a
label depending on the text in the label. One might think the method
getTextBounds() is the one I need, but there is an exception:


Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.eclipse.draw2d.FigureUtilities.setFont(FigureUtilities.j ava:369)
at
org.eclipse.draw2d.FigureUtilities.getTextDimension(FigureUt ilities.java:87)

org.eclipse.draw2d.FigureUtilities.getTextWidth(FigureUtilit ies.java:205)

at org.eclipse.draw2d.Label.getTextLocation(Label.java:431)
at org.eclipse.draw2d.Label.getTextBounds(Label.java:419)
[..]

Does anybody know how to fix this ?
Thanks,
Lars

Try this code:

FontData fd =new FontData("Arial",10,SWT.NONE);
font = new Font(null,fd);
Dimension dim = FigureUtilities.getTextExtents("text",font);

Hi Lars,

I have the same problem. I must implement a sequence diagram.
Have you found any example, resources or a solution?

greetings

Hi,

Perhaps you could create a Wrapper figure for the lifeline that will have
two figures as it's children: 1) the rectangle for the lifeline head where
you will add the label to 2) the polyline figure for the rest of the
lifeline.
Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Alex
