Hi, does anyone have any ideas how to set a diagram node to display as an
image?

Thanks in advance,

Hi

I use a custom figure.

In your Figure Gallery > Figure Descriptor > Rectangle > Custom Figure

In the properties of the Custom Figure:
Name: as your want
Qualified Class Name:
org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.draw2d.ui.render.figures.ScalableIma geFigure

Then generate etc.

Now you'll see some error on the files XXXPart.java

look for the method CreateContents()

and put something like this

URL url = this.getClass().getResource("");
ScalableImageFigure name_your_put = new
ScalableImageFigure(RenderedImageFactory.getInstance(url),tr ue,true,true);

this.add(name_your_put);


Try this

Thanks for your reply!

Just wondering, do you know of a way to do this before code generation?
The model I am working with is still undergoing change, so I currently
have to change my model and regenerate the code on a weekly basis, because
of this don't want to be editing the code after generation if I can avoid
it.

I'm rather supprised that GMF doesn't allow you to select an image (in the
place of a shape) for a node, I would have thought many people would want
this sort of functionality!

Thanks in advance,
Gary

You can set @generated NOT flag to the modified function or modified the template used for generation.

You can open a bug to ask for this enhancement.

Hi, a quick question!

-in the code you suggested, do i put the image url as shown below?
URL url = this.getClass().getResource(" --my image url-- ");

also what does 'RenderedImageFactory' reference in the lines below?

ScalableImageFigure nodeFig0 = new
ScalableImageFigure(RenderedImageFactory.getInstance(url),tr ue,true,true);

using eclipse ganymede, cannot import
org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.draw2d.ui.render.renderedImageFactor y;
for use with the previously mentioned suggestion for replacing my nodes
with images.

Does anyone know of a solution?
thanks in advance,
Gary
