We have implemented the Custom layout for sirius diagrams. With the help of below link.

The Custom layout is not getting invoked as we also have kieler layout in our project which is required for other diagrams. Always the control is passed to kieler layout.

We have debugged and checked both our custom layout provider and kieler layout have 'HIGHEST' priority.

Can anyone help us with this?

It is difficult to say why kieler (now called Eclipse Layout Kernel) get the priority but we are currently working on a better integration of ELK in Sirius (see

ELK v0.3 has a GMF connector providing DRAW2D layouting registered with Highest priority.

If you have not a higher priority for your provider but the same one, the first or last compatible provider is used and in your case it is not yours.

I think ELK should not set the highest priority for its GMF connector.

The only solution is to not have this connector installed.

In our integration we have our own Sirius connector that will allow to use any ELK layout algorithm. But the problem will be the same if you install the ELK GMF connector.
