Palette items as part of a toolbar [message #228762] Tue, 09 January 2007 17:14 Go to next message

I have a very simple palette with three items: select, create link,

this takes up a lot of real estate (yes, I have played with the
right-click palette settings).

I'd prefer to have these three tool items integrated into a larger
perspective or application-level SWT/RCP toolbar. Is this possible?

Ben,
I have just found a way to create
editparts from an action. It was exhausting
trying to find the way, but it turns out
to be only one line of code.

I created action like following:
and called action from context menu.

Hope this might help.

package project.actions;
import project.model.Node;
import org.eclipse.gef.EditPartViewer;
import org.eclipse.gef.requests.SimpleFactory;
import org.eclipse.gef.tools.CreationTool;
import org.eclipse.jface.action.Action;

public class InsertNodeAction extends Action{

public static final String ID =
"project.actions.insertnodeaction";

private EditPartViewer viewer;

public InsertNodeAction(EditPartViewer viewer){
this.viewer = viewer;
this.setId(ID);
this.setText("Insert Node");
this.setEnabled(true);
}

public void run() {
viewer.getEditDomain().setActiveTool(
new CreationTool(new SimpleFactory(Node.class)));
}
}
