Hi,

Do I have to integrate a GEF-Editor (extending GraphicalEditorWithPalette) in RCP as a RDP-Editor or is it possible to add it as a view?

Thank you,
George

No, you can implement a viewer directly on an SWT canvas control.
Take a look at the ScrollingGraphicalViewer class:
http://help.eclipse.org/help32/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse. gef.doc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/gef/ui/parts/Scrolling GraphicalViewer.html

IIRC, the code inside GraphicalEditor is quite easy to follow for
creating the viewer manually, and the redbook has plenty of detail.

Up to now, i didn't solve the problem. I integrated my editor as editor. So I would appreciate if you could give me some hints...

Well: I have an existing RCP-Project. It contains a lot of views. To expand this project, I builded an editor with gef. The editor is just a small part of the whole project, and I want to add it as a plugin.
In the plugin.xml of MyEditor I added the following extensions:
1. an org.eclipse.ui.editors-extension for MyEditor
2. an org.eclipse.ui.actionSets-extension for adding an icon and a call action (because the MyEditor is not visible from startup)

run() of the action:
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().openEditor(input, MyEditor.ID);
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().showView(IPageLayout.ID_PROP_SHEET);

I need to open the properties-view (because it's not open).

This all works, but it looks awful an dwhen i cloase MyEditor, the editor is still visible and the properties-view too.

My problems with this:
I want MyEditor as a view, because it more easy to handle (position, visible, etc.) (I think so, out of an unadvanced perspective)
I want the property sheet to be closed automatically with MyEditor

br,
Georg
