How to manually mark editor dirty? [message #595681] Fri, 17 April 2009 07:57

Hello everybody,

I have a - hopefully simple - question concerning the isDirty handling
of an editor developed within the Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment:

Some of my model elements do have complex properties which are objects
themselves, containing again complex properties, like this:

public class ModelElement implements Serializable {
private Property myProperty;

public class Property implements Serializable {
private Property subProperty;
private int fieldThatMayChange;

Now I need to manually mark the editor dirty when some one of the fields
(in the Eeample fieldThatMayChange) of those complex properties change.
How can I achieve that? Do I have access to the editor and it's
"firePropertyChange(PROP_DIRTY)" somehow? There's probably no direct
access to that method as it's protected in the GraphicalEditor class.

Thanks for any reply!
