Problems with custom Activity Diagram [message #1747609] Wed, 16 November 2016 12:43 Go to next message

I'm trying to create my own tooling with a custom ActivityDiagram but can't get it to work.

In the attached project I have a very simple tooling with a Viewpoint configuration defining custom diagram along with a palette with one tool for Initial Node.

When dragging and dropping the my initial node on top of my activity diagram I get the following exception. However when dropping from the standard palette/tool it works.

When comparing my configuration from the one in org.eclipse.papyrus.uml.diagram.activity/model/activityDiagram.configuration I can't see any problem but obviously I'm missing something. Can anyone point it out?

Hi Patrcik,

Your palette is using an unknown elementype.
Replacing
<elementDescriptors elementTypeId="my.MyActivityDiagram.MyActivityPaletteToolDefinition.InitialNode.InitialNode_Shape"/>
by
<elementDescriptors elementTypeId="my.MyActivityDiagram.InitialNode.InitialNode_Shape"/>
should do the trick.

Regards,
Benoit

Ps : you may find inspiration in [1] to add unit tests and avoid similar problem

Hi,

I get the same exception. I triple checked my elementTypeIds and they are identical. I attach a minimal version of my project.
I also have another problem that might be related: when I click an item on my palette and move the cursor on the canvas I got the red prohibiition symbol. I believe that this means that this element cannot be applied on this diagram. However, I don't have any such restriction (I believe).

Any ideas?

Hi Athanasios,

Please open a new topic when you have a question.

I briefly checked your code and:
- your are using the same ids for your elementtypeset
- the viewpoint is missing an icon
- an icon is badly defined in your elementype set

Regards,
Benoit

Hi Benoit,

Thanks for your reply.

Regarding the problems that you mentioned:
Quote:
- your are using the same ids for your elementtypeset

I realised the identifier problem which I changed but no luck. The same problem exists.

Quote:
- the viewpoint is missing an icon


I added an icon but the problem still exists. Are icons mandatory?

Quote:
- an icon is badly defined in your elementype set


I am not sure which icon you're refering to but I replaced all the icons with some that I found in a plugin that works fine, just to make sure that this is not the problem and unfortunately I get the same exception.

I get these messages now:

PS.: I apologise for that. I thought that it is not best practice to start a new thread on a topic that is already discussed as I believed that the error I received was related to what the OP posted. I am happy for the moderators to move our discussion in a new post.

Apparantly, the problem was that I had the org.eclipse.papyrus.umldi.Class as specializedTypesId in my .typesconfigurations file instead of the org.eclipse.papyrus.uml.Class
