Text Editor Incorporating Images [message #217536] Wed, 07 June 2006 16:16 Go to next message

Hi there,

I'm wondering, does GEF support some sort of text editor which allows one
to insert images and/or some kind of special character? I would like to
represent a user-selectable variable in a block of text, so I need some way
of either treating a string like a single character (to, say, delete it) or
to insert a (hopefully clickable) image as a character. Does anyone have
any ideas on this? Thanks so much.

GEF includes a text example that should be able to support what you seek :)

In the end, everything are just figures ;)

Cheers,

I ended up looking at the StyledText widget; it seems to be the core
component that supports this functionality (kinda). But I am having a load
of trouble getting the GEF samples up and running (from source, that is).
Is it just me, or is there no easy way to do this? It is easy to
"install the samples" which just seem to be a way to test out the
functionality of a GEF editor, but as far as I can tell, the only way to
load the source is to delve into the Eclipse plug-ins folder where the
samples are installed, get the zip, extract it, create a new plug-in
project, move in the GEF and Draw2d JAR files, and ... ? That's where I'm
at right now, with it not finding a whole bunch of other regular Eclipse
dependencies.
Am I just a moron, or is this not really streamlined yet? Thanks in
advance.

You need to learn how to use the PDE to import plug-ins as source project.
