the case is like that:
I have a diagram and a table, both contain same elements. Now I want to have a tool in diagram, the tool applies to all elements, through which tool I can navigate to the table and locate at the row of the implemented element. ara there any way to do this?

You would need to create a Java service to invoke from a custom tool to do this (it could be a "Popup Menu" tool that appears in the context menu for example, see

The basic idea for the Java services would be:

* Use DialectManager.INSTANCE.getAllRepresentations() (or another more precise methods if possible) to find the DTable representation you want to open & select.
* Then SessionUIManager.INSTANCE.getUISession(session).getEditor(theDTable) if the table editor is already opened, or DialectUIManager.INSTANCE.openEditor(session, theDTable) to open it.
* Iterate inside the DTable.getLines() (possibly recursively if you use sub-lines), to find the DLine (row) whose getTarget() points to the semantic element you are interested in.
* Finally, given the opened table editor and the specific DLine you want to be selected, call DialectUIManager.INSTANCE.selectAndReveal(theEditor, List.of(theDline));
