I am trying to show a dialog and then get a hold of the part contained in the new dialog so I can update it with data. Here is my code so far.

MUIElement dia = modelService.cloneSnippet(application, "edu.illinois.mobius.core.jobserver.dialog.nodeConnectionTest", null);
		SimpleConsolePart console = null;
		if(dia instanceof MDialog) {
			MDialog d = (MDialog)dia;
			Monitor mon = parentShell.getMonitor();
			Rectangle monitorRect = mon.getBounds();
			d.setX(monitorRect.x + (monitorRect.width - d.getWidth())/2);
			d.setY(monitorRect.y + (monitorRect.height - d.getHeight())/2);
			application.getChildren().add(d);
			d.setOnTop(true);
			
			PartImpl partI = (PartImpl) d.getChildren().get(0);
			console = (SimpleConsolePart)partI.getObject();
		}
		
		if(console != null) {
		// Update the console
		}


I am getting warnings about trying to access the PartImpl class because it is a discouraged access. Is there another way to get ahold of the part that the new dialog contains?

Well, that was an obvious mistake. Sometimes you have to look at problems with fresh eyes, I guess.

Here is the way to get the part without getting the discouraged access warnings.

MUIElement dia = modelService.cloneSnippet(application, "edu.illinois.mobius.core.jobserver.dialog.nodeConnectionTest", null);
		SimpleConsolePart console = null;
		if(dia instanceof MDialog) {
			MDialog d = (MDialog)dia;
			Monitor mon = parentShell.getMonitor();
			Rectangle monitorRect = mon.getBounds();
			d.setX(monitorRect.x + (monitorRect.width - d.getWidth())/2);
			d.setY(monitorRect.y + (monitorRect.height - d.getHeight())/2);
			application.getChildren().add(d);
			d.setOnTop(true);
			
			MPart partI = (MPart) d.getChildren().get(0);
			console = (SimpleConsolePart)partI.getObject();
		}
		
		if(console != null) {
		// Update the console
		}
