I got stuck with a very strange problem while implementing dynamic tool palette.
My palette change its contents every time a shape on the diagram is selected, i do this by overriding the getPallete() method from ToolBehavior and immediately i got this error when drag and drop a tool from the palette.

When i debug this problem it turns out the getPaletteViewer() from ToolEntryEditPart returns null but have no idea what causes this.

protected boolean handleNativeDragFinished(DragSourceEvent event) {
			return true;

Anyone have any ideas what might cause this ? Sad

it seems you try to exchange the palette in an open editor. As far as I can
remember the details of the internal implementation on this, this is not
supported by GEF our of the box. Not sure if that is doable...
