Hello all,

The scenario that I want to make is :

When selecting model elements from the palette , messages are displayed to guide the designer in making the right choices. These messages explain how to use/model the selected elements (indicate the association to be used between two events, explain the usefulness of the element in the model, etc.) to increase the quality of the generated models and applications.

How can I create this kind of message for each element of the palette .Any hlep/ hint is much appreciated

I have tried the documentation and the behavior section but in vain.

Best regards.

Do you mean selecting "model elements on the diagram" or "tools in the palette"?

You can add a listener or provide your own edit parts to react when a diagram element is selected or the mouse is over it. You can also modify your tools to add popups displaying messages. I guess that you would need to also have a button to activate/deactivate all these helps and hints for users that does not need it.

In my opinions, it would be less work to improve the modeler itself to be more user friendly (tool labels, variations on mappings and colors, fewer element to display per representations...) and some documentations on how to use your modeler.

Best regards,
