Hi!

I have two questions/problems with the properties view:

1. The FeatureEditorDialog and the combo boxes for editing properties with multiple selection values collect these values in the whole workspace, but I have a project based application and want only show objects (as values) from a specific project in the dialog and the combo boxes. Is this possible?

2. Referenced objects should also be shown in the properties view. I select a element and get whose features (with ItemPropertyDescriptors) in the property view. Now I search for a simple possibility to add referenced objects of the selected element in the properties view too.

The structure should look like this:

Property | Value
object.feature1 | value1
object.feature2 | value2
+object.referencedobject1
-object.referencedobject1.feature1 | value1
-object.referencedobject1.feature2 | value2
+object.referencedobject2
-object.referencedobject2.feature1 | value1
-object.referencedobject2.feature2 | value2

Best regards,

Michael

You can specialize the property descriptor's getChoiceOfValues method.
Have a look at ETypedElementItemProvider.addETypePropertyDescriptor.

Have a look at
GenBaseItemProvider.GenItemPropertyDescriptor.createProperty ValueWrapper.
This is how the GenModel (Generator editor) supports this for references
to the Ecore model (e.g., GenPackage's ecorePackage reference).
