Has anybody implemented matisse style contraints based layout using GEF &
SWT? Like to know if there are any algorithms that are open source.

Thanks,
Venkat

has had a similar layout, FormLayout, since 2.0. There is no draw2d layout
like this, but it would be an easy port. There are no edit policies in GEF
for editing a form layouts.

Correction, it uses GroupLayout.

Randy,

I think I was not too clear on my question. What I was looking for is if
anybody implemented in GEF, when drag and drop items from palette, it
shows lines to position the new item horizontally or vertically aligned
with other items. Internally it may use FormLayout, but what I am looking
at is whether I have to draw the snap lines myself or there is some
support from within Eclipse?

Last I heard Eclipse is going to implement this type of layout, so I am
confused when you say it is same as FormLayout.

Thanks,
Venkat

The Eclipse project with the greatest need for this behavior would be the VE
project, since they support building SWT GUIs, which could use a formlayout.
You might ask on their newsgroup.
