Hi all,

I subscribe to the selection service using:

getSite().getPage().addSelectionListener(String id ,ISelectionListener listener);


This works fine as long as my GMF editor is not already open when Eclipse opens. I did set a breakpoint and found out that the editor is registering. When closing and reopening the editor this is fixed. How can I get around this behaviour?

Hi Ralph,

Set the listener on a spot that gets visited when the editor is opened. A
good place is the editors createPartControl method.

Regards,

Wim

Hi,

adding the view as selection changed listener in the editor's plugin would violate the principle of loose coupeling. Is there no way to achieve this in the view's plugin? I have the code in the views createPart method. But somehow it must be related to Eclipse, because it only works when closing and opening the editor if it was open when eclipse started.
