How to save both model and diagram in the same file from "File - Save as" menu [message #482593] Thu, 27 August 2009 08:17 Go to next message

Hi all,

In our gmfgen, we've set the "Same file for diagram and model" to 'true'.
It works fine but when editing a diagram, then using the "File > Save As"
menu, it saves only the diagram part in the file. The model is referred
from it but I would like that both diagram and model are saved in the same
file.

Does anyone know how to do it ? Is there any method to override ?

Regards,
Jerome

Hello Jerome,

You need to modify ???DocumentProvider.doSaveDocument() [if (info == null)
branch].

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your answer.

I have to override the branch code in if (info == null). My understanding
is that I have to replace the following line :
final Diagram diagramCopy = (Diagram)
EcoreUtil .copy(diagramDocument.getDiagram());

by something equivalent to get the diagram and the model, isn't it ? If
yes, does exist an util method to do that ?

Regards,
Jerome

Hello Jerome,

Did you try EcoreUtil.copyAll()?

Hi Alex,

My problem is that in the "DocumentProvider.doSaveDocument", I only have
access to the DiagramDocument and it doesn't contain the domain data. So,
even the copyAll will return the diagram stuff.

Do you you know how to retrieve either the original file or the original
domain model ?

Hello Jerome,

You can call diagram.getElement() to receive referenced domain model element.

Hi Jerome and Alex,

Just redirct your own domain model's root model to any Resource's
contents, then save that resource.
If a diagram refers to your domain root model myModelRoot, resource is
the target file you need to save you model(may be as the same as your
diagram file).
As your discussed, in DocumentProvider.doSaveDocument(), get myModelRoot
from diagram, and resource.getContents().add(myModelRoot),
resource.save(null).

That all, try it.
