Hi Jens,

The buttons on the toolbar are probably actions that your editor
contributes to the toolbar. In your action #run() method (or the one that
executes the action) you can create your dialog or message and depending
on the result from the dialog/message run the action accordingly. You
could look at GMF's logic example from M7 for "Modify Ports Color" on the
context menu for LEDs and circuits as examples.
