Gmfmap figure components [message #196259] Wed, 09 July 2008 09:58 Go to next message

Hello,

is there an 'advanced' tutorial/howto that explains the different
components that can be used to define figures in the gmfgraph file?
Some of the questions I would like to get answered from that tutorial:

Explanation of the different figure components like Polygon, Scaleable
Polygon and Template Points. How to create complex figures -> how to
combine the various components.

In one of the tutorials is a small part showing how to import svg files
- I prefer composing the figures directly in the gmfgraph file with
points and lines.

Where can I get these information? Google, the newsgroup and the
Eclipsepedia have only partial infos.

Thank you in advance
Jens

Hello Jens,

Well, .gmfgraph model figures are similar to draw2d figures and should be
"self-descriptive" :-).
I can suggest you to try org.eclipse.gmf.graphdef.editor plugin - a WYSIWYG
editor for .gmfgraph model.

Alex,

thanks for your quick answer.
I am quite new to eclipse/gmf so I have some problems getting that
editor running.

I downloaded the GMF Experimental SDK (only reference to
org.eclipse.gmf.graphdef.editor I found) but how can I use it?
Added the files to the eclipse features/plugins folders, restart
eclipse. Tried to open the .gmfgraph file with the editor, but cannot
find the appropriate.
Or should there be an option to create a diagram file?

Thank you in advance
Jens

Hello Jens,

Yes. You should be able to create new .gmfgraph diagram or initialize it
using existing .gmfgraph file.
