Hi,

With the help of Jan topic http://koehnlein.blogspot.com/2009/06/synchronized-editors-with-tmfxtext-and.html, i have succeeded in synchronizing both editors.
The problem that i have is that actually im working on a multipage editor, so, the property Same File for Diagram And Model is set to true and the domain and diagram files extensions have the same values, doing so , i found problems in remaking work the synchro stuff.

Any ideas how i could deal with the synchronization without actual parameters?

thanks

I cannot see how same file for diagram and model would ever work with
Xtext, as you'd have a mixed content (XMI, Xtext based text) resource.
I'd rather keep the two separated and register the editor to both
extensions.

Actually, you can get the same file for diagram and model to work, but it's not for the faint of heart. You have to specialize several Xtext classes like the XtextLazyLinkingResource, among others, not to mention several GMF classes and code generation templates. All in all about a dozen classes, some of which have to be injected into your Xtext editor. I don't recommend doing it unless you really really really have a pressing need, as well as time and an understanding of how these editors work. The solution is not guaranteed to work with future versions and it may even void your warranty. In other words, there is no nice, general solution Sad
