Hi,
Can anybody describe how to add annotations to objects in GMF. I tried
adding annotations to the objects in the metamodel but its not working. I
want a situation where I can annotate my diagrams after running the
application.
Thanks

Hello Toyin,

Looks like you have to define corresponding containment reference to Annotation
class in your meta-model + define mapping to these annotations - corresponding
nodes will be visible on diagram.

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your response. I didnt understand, could you explain further.
How do I go about that or is there a way I could include eannotations
programmatically? I think it would be easier if you could explain your
suggestions further.
Thanks

Hello Toyin,

I meant: you have a domain model with EClass<DomainElement> and you can create
another EClass<Annotation> with EAttribute<annotationContents:EString> +
containment EReference<annotations> from <DomainElement> to <Annotation>.
Then you can create a mapping for <Annotation> and as a result you'll be
able to create DomainElements on diagram + annotations attached to it with
corresponding contents..

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your explanation. I tried it as described but the
EClass<annotation> came out as a shape (rectangle) in the diagram after
running the application. Please, do you have any sample meta-model with
Eannotations that could be of help. Pls send the url.

Thanks
Toyin

How would you like to visualize it? Property?
