Creating a request [message #227167] Thu, 30 November 2006 07:25 Go to next message

Hi,

May I know how do I create a new Request type and where and how do I send
the Request so that my Command in my EditPolicy can handle it?

Or are the number of Request fixed and I can only create my own Commands
to handle the Request?

Thanks :)

Hi,

You can create as many new requests as you like - there is no limit.
Requests are sent to edit parts to obtain a command for the request, to be
able later on to execute the command and, hence, deliver changes to the
model.
Requests can be created by various user actions: clicking on actions on
the popup menus and tool bars, drag and drop, mouse clicks on figures etc.
Requests are created by:
1) tools - subclasses of AbstractTool
2) actions, i.e. actions contributed to tool bars

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Alex

Per previous comment:

Requests can also be created inside edit policies to obtain subcommands.
