Hi

I have a model similar to the following:
class A {
    SomeType value;
    AnotherType context;
}
class B {
    A a1;
    A a2;
}

I generate editor with EMFForms for instance of class B and have defined a custom renderer for feature A.value. However, the behavior of the renderer depends on the contents of A.context field. This means, that my renderer needs access to the exact instance of A (either a1 or a2) that this renderer is editing.
In EMFForms 1.5 this was simple. getViewModelContext().getDomainModel() in renderer contains exactly what I needed.
In EMFForms 1.6 that same call always returns instance of B.
My question is: Is there a simple way to access the instance of object being edited in renderer (a1 or a2 in this case)? And I can't use TreeMasterDetail here, because all controls must be visible on screen at the same time. I can think of a couple solutions, but they will probably have a very high chance of stopping working in next EMFForms release.

Best regards
Radek Stachowiak

Hi Radek,
In EMFForms 1.6 we introduced an EMFFormsDatabinding Service.
You can retrieve the currently edited instance in a renderer using it:
final IObservableValue observableValue =getModelValue();
//final EStructuralFeature structuralFeature = (EStructuralFeature) observableValue.getValueType();
final EObject eObject = (EObject) ((IObserving) observableValue).getObserved();


The reason for the more "ugly" code is our attempt to make the emfforms renderer more independent of EMF as a data model.

Cheers,
Eugen

Hi

Thanks for the reply.
I also found this solution in one of EMFForms classes Smile
