Hi,

I have basically three questions:

first, I would like to know if it is possible to filter the classes shown in the FeatureEditorDialog (opened for example by a reference widget in the properties sheet) so that it shows only classes present in a specific metamodel.

My second question is how to edit the "Ecore" default properties tab.
I've read the article https://www.eclipse.org/sirius/doc/specifier/properties/Properties_View_Description.html but it I couldn't get the Override option to function.

When I use extend, it duplicates the properties tab. But when I use override, it doesn't do anything.

I would like to edit the default properties sheet, so that "Documentation" and "Annotation" are hidden. I also would like to make some changes on the widgets, especially the existing reference widget. It would be great if I could apply a filter on it (first question).

Third: Why can we override all widgets except reference?!

Best regards,
Amine

No it is not possible to filter the classes provided by the dialog. If you need to filter them, you have to create your own custm widget based on the Reference widget. Have a look to the documentation to see how to create a custom widget :

You can hide properties sheets thanks to the org.eclipse.eef.properties.ui.eefTabDescriptorFilter extension point : https://eclipse.org/eef/#/documentation/2.0.0/developerguide/eeftabdescriptorfilter
Sirius uses this extension point to filter the semantic & default tabs : https://git.eclipse.org/c/sirius/org.eclipse.sirius.git/tree/plugins/org.eclipse.sirius.ui.properties/src/org/eclipse/sirius/ui/properties/internal/filter/SiriusTabDescriptorFilter.java

Hi Mélanie,

such elaborate answers are always appreciated. Many thanks.

As an improvement suggestion, I think that it would be nice to add a field in the properties of the reference widget, that allow the user to filter the classes shown in the dialog.

In the mean time, I will try to create my own reference widget by extending the class EEFExtMultipleReferenceLifecycleManager and overriding the browseButtonCallback method.

Best regards,
Amine

While investigating the bugzilla created by Mélanie to try and fix it, I was unable to reproduce the bug: when I try both extension and overriding of Ecore Tools pages work. I've attached the sample project I made with the detailed steps I used to try and reproduce the issue. Amine, if you have more details about what's different in our settings please comment on the ticket and I'll look again.

Hi Pierre-Charles,

I followed the instructions at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=519566 but I couldn't find the Bugzilla-51956 Viewpoint when trying to select a viewpoint for my modeling project. I only get the usual "Design", "Archetype" and "Review". Are you sure you uploaded the right project? Because I don't see any VSM in the project that you uploaded (see screenshot)

Best regards,
Amine
