I am in the process of writing a form-based editor for an XML file and I
want to use WTP's XML editor as the source view. I found a way to get at
the XML DOM of the editor and I am able to push changes from the
form-based editor to the source view.
Couple of questions...
1. How does one listen for changes to the DOM (in order to update the
2. Is there a trick/utility for handling formatting when creating
content? I know how to do it manually by adding various whitespace
sections to the DOM tree, but I'd rather not re-invent the wheel if the
wheel already exists. :)

As for some of the DOM nodes, you might want to look at the
EMFDOMAdaptor, which I think will get you in the direction you want to
go, as it keeps an EMF Model and DOM model in synch, so that changes to
one get propopogated into the other. Might be able to do something
similar in your situation, or at least it might give you some ideas.

I believe that is taken care of for you automatically, but I could be

I'm also in the process of writing a form-based editor for an XML files
controlled by XSD schemas. Would you be willing to share what you've
learned with me. I would really appreciate sight of your model etc as you
appear to have already explored the areas I'm finding difficulty with.
I've looked at the PDE Schema editor but I really need the model to run
from the DOM as you appear to.
