Hi all...

I've only just recently started diving into some of the gooey goodness of Graphiti and have run into a small problem I haven't found an example for yet.

I have an open diagram in an editor that extends org.eclipse.graphiti.ui.editor.DiagramEditor. When I delete the file that's open, the editor should close as is done with other editor types in Eclipse.

I looked at implementing a solution similar to what's described here for MultiPageEditor, but obviously there's no AbstractTextEditor#handleEditorInputChanged() method to override.

Is there another method to override? It seems there's a Diagram Resource Set Listener in the DiagramEditorInternal class, but it's private and I don't see a good way to hook into that mechanism.

Thanks in advance for any help and guidance here.

Graphiti has an ElementDeleteListener in place that cares about closing the
editor when the diagram resource (file) is deleted. It works for the
tutorial and the other test editors we have. If this does not work for you
it sounds like a bug. Do you have an example how to reproduce?

Interesting. Ok, so it seems that for some reason we're never falling into the listener when we have the file deleted...

This is for the BPMN2 Visual Editor, which is coming to Eclipse soon... (https://github.com/imeikas/BPMN2-Editor-for-Eclipse/wiki)

I haven't been able to duplicate it using the samples, so I suspect that there's something in the code itself. We're extending the DiagramEditor class, so I'm wondering if there's a method we need to extend or a setting we're missing somewhere in there....

If you want to look at the code, it's all in git - you'll need the BPMN2 model (http://git.eclipse.org/c/bpmn2/) and the BPMN2 editor (git://github.com/imeikas/BPMN2-Editor-for-Eclipse).

The org.eclipse.bpmn2.modeler.ui.editor.BPMN2Editor class is in the org.eclipse.bpmn2.modeler.ui plug-in.

Any and all observations you may have would be great - as I'm a bit lost. Smile

Thank you!

Hi,

if i delete the file which actually contains the diagram
(in the .bpmn2 folder) the editor is closed properly.

So from the framework side it seems to be ok.

If you want the editor to be closed on model file deletion
you would have to implement a functionality yourself
or delete the diagram file automatically if the model file is deleted.

What do you think?

Best, Tim

There is a related problem with file renaming: the example diagram editor will close if you try to rename its file while the editor is open.

Is this a known issue?
