Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to reuse a xtext grammar in my GMF Editor. In my GMF Editor, I've got a Node, containing a label, where I would like to reuse a xtext grammar:

index.php/fa/16168/0/

Furthermore, Syntax Coloring, Content Assist and Validation should be supported, while the xtext grammar has got rules where elements from the EMF/GMF editor ecore are part of it.

I'm wondering now what's the best and cleanest way to realise this. Additional, it would be great if there is a tutorial describing this, as I'm not that familiar with Xtext.

Cheers,
Phil

There is no simple and absolutely bullet proof way to do this, so there
is no tutorial.

Have a look at Yakindu Statechart Tools
http://statecharts.org/
They have a solution for their usecase.
