Hi all,

I have a Graphiti Diagram with several different types of pictogram registered. I then use the standard org.eclipse.ui.propertyPages extension point to allow the "Properties" menu item to bring up properties pages for these pictograms.

However, when the properties pages are shown, the title always has the form:

Properties for PE: org.eclipse.graphiti.mm.pictograms.impl.ContainerShapeImpl@7a374e41 (visible:true, active: true).


I'd clearly like to insert my own meaningful title, rather than the default toString() behaviour.

Other than overriding the whole peCreateService() mechanism and creating a ContainerShapeImpl-derived class that has an improved toString(), are there any recommended ways of insert my own properties title?

Thanks,
Peter.

I dont know if its the best solution, but the other way around could be to implement your own propertysheet?
