Hi,

I am currently working on a basic GUI builder, i need some info
regarding draw2D. I have gone through the visual editor project but could
not figure out the way they draw the figures on the GEF editor. I need to
draw the figures in such a way that the look is exactly the way it will be
when i run the app.

For example when we create GUI in SWT there will be a shell which contains
a group of widgets, in the same way i need to picture this on the editor.
Is it possible please let me know

Regards,
Sheldon

They use screen-scraping. They launch the actual GUI (at some coordinates
off the screen) and take a screen capture. They use this image as the
background in the edior and then use editparts with transparent figures in
the editor. Info about where these invisible figures should be placed is
derived from the model or the GUI that was launched (in case of automatic
layouts). You should follow up your questions on the vep newsgroup.
