[Sorry for sending this a second time, but it seems my message was not sent]

Hi,

I am working on a Safe State Machine Editor and am trying to create
Figures that change their look based on the value of an attribute.

(For example: a state with attribute 'kind' set to 'INITIAL' is supposed
to be a small black dot, while a state with attribute 'kind' set to
'FINAL' is supposed to be a small black dot in a white circle.)

I found an article in the GMF-Wiki that explains how to accomplish this.
(http://wiki.eclipse.org/GMF_Tips - the section 'Making figures
sensitive to attributes of semantic elements')

I am supposed to make changes to the class
'<ThingIWantToMakeDynamic>EditPart', specifically to add a method to an
inner class named '<ThingIWantToMakeDynamic>Figure' and to override the
method 'handleNotificationEvent'.
However, I can find neither the mentioned inner class nor the method. I
have also searched through other files, but they seem to be missing.
Maybe I missunderstood something.

Can you help me?

Thanks in advance,
Matthias

Hi,

The edit parts should be in plugin/src/[yourpackage name].parts as
specified in the .gmfgen file. You should find your inner Figures there
as well.

Do you have success generated the diagram code from your .gmfgen?

Cheers Christophe

Ah, after generating the diagram code once again, I found everything.
Thanks for the hint :)
