Double-click on editpart - need to invoke editor command [message #180888] Wed, 11 May 2005 11:21 Go to next message

I react to the double-click event on editpart with code:

public void performRequest(Request req) {
if (req.getType().equals(RequestConstants.REQ_OPEN)){

The problem is, that gef code is in "edit" package, but editor classes
are stored in "editor" package - implementation based on ibm's redbook.

Double-click event should open properties dialog, but in editpart there
is no entrypoint to lookup editor, i have no idea how to request execute
command by editor.

How should i implement such functionality?

best regards,

I'm not exactly sure what you want to do, but if all you wanted was to
invoke an editor action/command from within your editpart, you could do

IEditorPart editor =
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().getActiveEditor();

ActionRegistry actionRegistry =

IAction action = actionRegistry.getAction(<your action id>));

if (action != null && action.isEnabled()) {;


hope this helps,
