I have the copy/paste working using UUID's and that all appears to work
fine, however, upon paste, I would like to change the value of an
attribute so it does not conflict with the one it was copied from...


So I copy this element...
<element name="abc" xmi:id="asdqweasd..." >
...
</element>

and on paste I want it to be:
<element name="copy of abc" xmi:id="lkjlkjdfa..." >
...
</element>

where name is what I want to change, xmi:id is already changed for me...

I'm failing to find a way to hook into to perform this operation...
Thanks in advance for any input..

Hello All,

I'm using Copy/Paste feature of GMF 2.0 for my GMF editor.
But upon paste, I would like to change the value of an attribute(like uuid
to unique uuid) so that it does not conflict with the one it was copied
from.

I checked the imlpementation of CopyOperation Class and PasteOperation
Class.
But i'm not able to find where should I make the change to handle unique
attribute generation.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Shwetha
