Filters for diagram extension [message #1722204] Wed, 03 February 2016 11:24 Go to next message

Hello,

I would like to create new filters on an existing diagram for my new viewpoint.
I cannot find how to do this as a diagram extension does not allow me to define new filters (through the odesign treeview).

How can I proceed ?

Regards,
Pierre

CompositeFilter (which produces filters in the tabbar) are children of
the DiagramDescription.

DiagramExtensionDescription can be used to provide additional layers
(with mappings and tools) to existing diagrams but not to provide
additional filters.

Currently, there is no way to contribute CompositeFilter to an existing
diagram unless you modify its DiagramDescription in the initial VSM.

This could be an interesting idea to complete the filters support by
filter provided by activated layers (which can be contributed by diagram
extension) or by diagram extension.

You might want to create a bugzilla to propose and details the need.
Nevertheless note that we have currently not planned to work on it in
the following releases.

Hello,

I am also interested by that !
I hoped it was possible as I have found in the online documentation:

"A Diagram Extension can specify the Metamodels of the semantic elements it represents if it supports types of elements which were not represented in the extended diagram. Inside a Diagram Extension, you can define validation rules, filters and additional layers."
(http://www.eclipse.org/sirius/doc/specifier/diagrams/Diagrams.html#diagram_extension)

Anyway, thanks for the clear answer !
Regards,

Dimitri

Sorry for this error in the documentation: you can effectively declares
new layers and new validation rules but not filters. There is a mismatch
around filters: between CompositeFilter and Concern:
. CompositeFilterDescripion can be specified as children of a
DiagramDescription are displayed in the tabbar.
. Concern is an old concept which used to be displayed in the old ui
(without the tabbar), Specifier had the possiblity to define it as a set
of CompositeFilter, ValidationRule and BehaviorTool to activate/launch
on concern activation. This concept is no more shown to the final user.

I have just created Bug 487304 to track the issue.

I was hit by this just now. I always wonder: Diagram Descriptions are
models, so maybe we can just 'extend' these original models dynamically
by updating them at runtime, in this case, just add a FilterElement.
I feel that this could potentially solve many of the current issues I
hit when extending existing diagrams. We would just need some sort of
transformation hook that would be invoked when the description is first
loaded from the .odesign file, and also verify if there are hidden
problems related to caching..

Thank you for your relies.

Felix, did you managed to do what you describe.
I don't actually know how to dynamically change the odesign model...

I was just sketching some ideas.. Have no time to try something as crazy
as this.. There are lots of obstacles to make this actually work and
even then, maybe it doesn't work at all.
