Is there a way to design an application where you can right-click on an
element and then click on a botton in the context menu to replace the
element with another one? Please help.
Thank you

Hi Toyin,

I did this by deleting the selected element and then creating a new
element where the old one was. Try the "Insert Topic" tutorial on
http://wiki.eclipse.org/GMF_Tutorial_Part_3 to learn how to create new
elements based on selecting an option in a context menu.

To create a command to delete an element:

DestroyElementRequest request = new DestroyElementRequest(element, false);
Command deleteLinkCmd = sublink.getCommand( new
EditCommandRequestWrapper(request) );
