Hello
I'm generating a GMF editor from an ecore model. I have some parent object
that should be placed on the diagram - lets call it A. It can have one
object B and 0..* objects B. I've specified that condition in Ecore model,
but generated diagram does not obey that, and I have to place object B by
myself. Moreover, I'm able to place more B-objects than one.

How can I force such object's multiplicity?

Marcin

Hi Marcin,

Cardinalities defined in the ecore model are not translated by GMF into
validations automatically. You have to take further manual steps for that.

If you want to automatically create a B if A ist created, you can modify
doDefaultElementCreation() in your ACreateCommand class to
programmatically add a B object to the newly created A object.

To validate the cardinalities you can use GMF's validation functionality
which is introduced here:
