I'd like to create a floating image button similar to what is currently in XSD Editor (upper left corner). How can I achieve this is in Graphiti? I haven't looks at XSD Editor code, but I presume they are keeping track of coordinates delta when viewport is panned or scroll bars are used to change coordinates of the button?

Here is my unoptimized solution - setFocus in method in DiagramEditor:
	public void setFocus() {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		GraphicalViewer graphicalViewer2 = getGraphicalViewer();
		FigureCanvas control = (FigureCanvas) graphicalViewer2.getControl();
		control.getViewport().addPropertyChangeListener(new PropertyChangeListener() {
			public void propertyChange(PropertyChangeEvent evt) {
				Point p = control.getViewport().getViewLocation();
				DiagramEditPart part = (DiagramEditPart) getDiagramBehavior().getContentEditPart();
				Diagram model = (Diagram) part.getModel();
				EList<Shape> children = model.getChildren();
				ContainerShape shape = (ContainerShape) children.get(0);
				GraphicsAlgorithm ga = shape.getGraphicsAlgorithm();
				int x = p.x;
				int y = p.y;
				System.out.println(x + ", " + y);
new SetCommand(getDiagramBehavior().getEditingDomain(), ga, AlgorithmsPackage.Literals.GRAPHICS_ALGORITHM__X, x));
new SetCommand(getDiagramBehavior().getEditingDomain(), ga, AlgorithmsPackage.Literals.GRAPHICS_ALGORITHM__Y, y));

This code will always keep the Shape you control static when editor's canvas is resized:
I still need to smooth things out as there is quite a bit jerkiness going on when editor is scrolled. But so far I got what I needed.
