Status of GEF with MultiEditorPart [message #180410] Thu, 05 May 2005 02:14 Go to next message

I would really like to use GEF in a multi-page editor.

An earlier post entitled "SelectionActions and MultiPageEditorPart" flags
this as "not supported", and references:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=46207

I note that this bug is now resolved, and it looks like the code was
released in 3.1M5 (?).

I don't really understand the details of this new nested part framework,
and so am wondering about implications - is the idea that this will help
me (the client developer) to produce a multi-page editor with a GEF page,
or is the idea that GEF will build on this infrastructure to provide 'out
of the box' support in the future? If the latter, is this being actively
worked on by the GEF crew?

Thanks,

Jason.

The resolution in "LATER", meaning some future release.

You can use GEF inside a MultiPageEditor, a view, or even dialogs. You can
create your own graphical editor implementation from scratch, or you can try
workarounds to the known problems as discussed in previous threads.

Hi Jason

I was wanting to the same thing, with the MultiPageEditor being
automatically generated by EMF.

I found that there are considerable diffiulties as a result of
the different perspectives of Viewer, SelectionSynchronizer
and OutlinePage. But I sort of got it going for an EDiagram.

However I recognised that the underlying classes need an API
revision and since this may be an area where the GMF project
gets involved, why waste time now? I pushed the multi-page
aspect aside, and got on with improving EDiagram.

If you want my side-lined classes, you can have them, but
I certainly wouldn't say they were fully functional. Expect
a tedious time finding out where reimplemented occluded
inherited variables manage to get used after all.

Regards

Ed Willink

In this bug report, there is a reference to a document:

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/%7Echeckout%7E/plat form-ui-home/components-proposal/ComponentFrameworkProposal. html#top

entitled:

"Component Framework Proposal" Draft Revision 1.0.4
By Stefan Xenos and Nick Edgar
Last modified 2004/11/05

which sound like something that fits my particular problem well.

How can I find out the status of the support code for this proposal and
how I can participate on making it a reality?

Thanks,
Kevin
