I'm trying to set the default grid line color, line style and whether or not the grid should be on top. These properties don't seem to be constants in IPreferenceConstants, but I do see the relevant constants in WorkspaceViewerProperties. So, I'm trying this code in my DiagramPreferencesInitializer
   * @generated NOT
  public void initializeDefaultPreferences() {
    IPreferenceStore store = getPreferenceStore();
 store.setDefault(, SWT.COLOR_BLACK);
    store.setDefault(, false);

    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SHOW_CONNECTION_HANDLES, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SHOW_POPUP_BARS, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_ENABLE_ANIMATED_LAYOUT, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_ENABLE_ANIMATED_ZOOM, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_ENABLE_ANTIALIAS, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_LINE_STYLE, Routing.MANUAL);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SHOW_RULERS, false);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_RULER_UNITS, RulerProvider.UNIT_INCHES);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SHOW_GRID, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SNAP_TO_GRID, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_SNAP_TO_GEOMETRY, true);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_GRID_SPACING, 0.125);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_PROMPT_ON_DEL_FROM_MODEL, false);
    store.setDefault(IPreferenceConstants.PREF_PROMPT_ON_DEL_FROM_DIAGRAM, false);

The IPreferenceConstants get picked up as defaults but the others don't. Any suggestions?

Hello there,

This is correct there are no IPreferenceConstants for those properties.

In order to achieve the expected results I had to add the following code under the (it does not work if you simply place it under initializeDefaultPreferences..)

	protected void addDefaultPreferences() {

Hope it is useful.

Best, Nikos.
