Hello everybody,
I'm working on the integration of Papyrus Properties View framework with WindowBuilder. These views are described with XWT, but with custom widget.

I succeed to render your exising property view with WindowBuilder (hacking it to bypass a ClassLoader problem and continue to work, I just add to windowbuilder a dependency on Papyrus ).
I succeed to add our widgets in the palette using the wb extension point, but I don't understand how to make work it :
- creation is not allowed
- widget can't be selected in the UI. WindowBuilder only understand the composite object.

Our widgets are not instance of Composite, they wrap it and provide a method to create it.

Please do you have some ideas about the process to follow to :
- get my widget selectable in the wb UI
- allow to creation

Here an example of your xwt file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Composite xmlns="http://www.eclipse.org/xwt/presentation"
	xmlns:creation="clr-namespace:org.eclipse.papyrus.infra.properties.ui.creation"
	xmlns:j="clr-namespace:java.lang" xmlns:ppe="clr-namespace:org.eclipse.papyrus.infra.properties.ui.widgets"
	xmlns:ppel="clr-namespace:org.eclipse.papyrus.infra.properties.ui.widgets.layout"
	xmlns:umlXtext="clr-namespace:org.eclipse.papyrus.uml.properties.xtext"
	xmlns:x="http://www.eclipse.org/xwt"
	xmlns:xtext="clr-namespace:org.eclipse.papyrus.infra.widgets.xtext.creation">
	<Composite.layout>
		<ppel:PropertiesLayout></ppel:PropertiesLayout>
	</Composite.layout>
	<Composite>
		<Composite.layout>
			<ppel:PropertiesLayout></ppel:PropertiesLayout>
		</Composite.layout>
		<ppe:StringEditor input="{Binding}" property="UML:NamedElement:name"></ppe:StringEditor>
		<ppe:StringEditor input="{Binding}" property="UML:NamedElement:label"></ppe:StringEditor>
		<ppe:StringEditor input="{Binding}" property="UML:NamedElement:qualifiedName"></ppe:StringEditor>
	</Composite>
	<Composite>
		<Composite.layout>
			<ppel:PropertiesLayout numColumns="2"></ppel:PropertiesLayout>
		</Composite.layout>
		<ppe:BooleanRadio input="{Binding}" property="UML:Classifier:isAbstract"></ppe:BooleanRadio>
		<ppe:BooleanRadio input="{Binding}" property="UML:Class:isActive"></ppe:BooleanRadio>
	</Composite>
	<Composite>
		<Composite.layout>
			<ppel:PropertiesLayout></ppel:PropertiesLayout>
		</Composite.layout>
		<ppe:EnumCombo input="{Binding}" property="UML:NamedElement:visibility"></ppe:EnumCombo>
		<ppe:MultiReference input="{Binding}" property="UML:StructuredClassifier:ownedAttribute"></ppe:MultiReference>
	</Composite>
	<Composite>
		<Composite.layout>
			<ppel:PropertiesLayout numColumns="2"></ppel:PropertiesLayout>
		</Composite.layout>
		<ppe:MultiReference input="{Binding}" property="UML:Class:ownedOperation"></ppe:MultiReference>
		<ppe:MultiReference input="{Binding}" property="UML:Class:ownedReception"></ppe:MultiReference>
	</Composite>
</Composite>

Since 2 days I continued on my problem. I created :

  • java class "*ComponentInfo" extending org.eclipse.wb.internal.xwt.model.widgets.ControlInfo
  • *.wbp-component.xml file, in which I register my java class as <x-model> and I added <parameter name="XWT.hasModel">true</parameter>
    Now I get ClassCastException because my editors can't be cast as Control.
    Of course I could duplicate and adapt the ControlInfo class to fix by problem, but I would like to know if there is another way for that ? I already tried to add this king od thing in my component.xml file, but without success


    		<parameter name="viewer.control.method" value="getControl" />
    		<parameter name="Wrapper.method">getControl</parameter>
