How to draw lines between tree items [message #216967] Mon, 29 May 2006 16:18 Go to next message

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to make a eclipse plugin for the Dozer project
(http://dozer.sourceforge.net/).

I would like to do a source tree, with a target tree, in a editor, I'va
already done this with GEF Tree, or JFaces Tree, using a SashForm.

But When I want to use a PaletteRoot with a ConnectionCreationToolEntry
for connecting a source tree item to a target tree item, it doesn't work
;-((

The GEF or JFaces Tree is part of Widget object and not Figure object,
that's why it couldn't work !!

Well, I want to know if there is a simple solution to do (or solve) this
kind of thing ???

It seems very boring to do a TreeFigure who implements the IFigure
Interface, or to use a basic drawLine method !!! I prefer to use a
PolylineConnection to do the job ;-)

Well, hope that somebody could help me ...

Sincerely

Bruno

Take a look at the SimpleTreeExample example in the
org.eclipse.draw2d.examples.tree package. The org.eclipse.draw2d.examples
is only available from CVS. Refer to the GEF wiki on how to attach to the
repository.

Hi Stephen,

Thank's for having aswering ...

I've already check the draw2D tree example code. Well, I've began to
integrate it to a plugin, but it seems to me, that to do all from scratch
is so boring.

I'm amazed, that in the GEF framework, we couldn't not use a specific GEF
tree that implement IFigure interface !!!

Well, for drawing boxes (UML and so one), GEF is a good way, but when you
do some exotic stuff, well, use draw2D it a lot of time !!!

I'm a little diseappointed with GEF ... But, perhaps I want to do
something to mutch difficult ???

Sincerely

Bruno
