I wanted to create Forms Editor for my emf model, then I stumbled upon EMF Eclipse Forms Editor and integrated into my project. The Forms Editor works quite well, however in my case I wanted forms editor to be the only editor that understands my model and removed all other editors such as Selection, Parent and Tree. Unfortunately without these editors loaded first menu action listeners do not work properly in Forms Editor. One example would be that only one instance of child can be created per editor being open, the other is if model allows only one child of Type A let's say, in context menu Type A menu is not disabled unless I restart the editor. I tried to debug this behavior and even added code to initialize ViewerPane during PartListener call:
protected void hideTabs() {
		if (getPageCount() == 2) {
			if (getContainer() instanceof CTabFolder) {
		          ((ViewForm)viewerPane.getControl()).getContent().setFocus();
				 viewerPane.showFocus(true);
				 setCurrentViewerPane(viewerPane);
				((FormEditor)this).setActivePage(ScrolledPropertiesPage.ID);
				((CTabFolder)getContainer()).setTabHeight(0);
			}
		}
	}

Unfortunately none of my attempts worked. Has anybody utilized EMF Forms Editor before? Perhaps there is another working solution?

Thanks,
Alex

Did you have a look at the EMF Client Platform? It could be a "better alternative".

Yes, the component of EMF Client Platform, which might be interesting
for you is EMF Forms:

Thanks Erdal,

I did look at ECP about six months ago and it is interesting project. However back then I don't think support for Eclipse Workspace was working properly, something that I was interested in.

Thanks Jonas,

I posted my interest in ECP and back then you mentioned that support for master detail view might be in plans. Was there any progress in this area?

Hi,

the support for the eclipse workspace is actually independant of EMF
Forms. However, if the workspace support for ECP did not work for you,
could you kindly report, what was not working?

Regards

Jonas

Hi,

yes, master detail will be part of the 1.2 release, which will be
released in the beginning of next week. I am just writing the
documentation, I will post it here, so you can try it out.

I'll have to reinstall ECP and try it out again, but as I remember there were exceptions during finishing wizard with Eclipse Workspace selected.

Hi,

It would be great, if you could test it again and report the error!

Thanks

Jonas,

As of ECP 1.1.1 it's working fine. I was using 0.9 at the time I believe.

Thanks,
Alex
