Hello,

I have a GMF/Obeo designer modeler and I use EEF for my property sheet.
I would like to implement a listener on an EditPart of my diagram which will show an EEF view of my choice.

I know how to catch the event on my diagram, but I can't figure out how to active the EEF view.

Do you have any idea?

Regards,

Xavier

Xavier,

Here's how we open the properties view for double click in the Sample
Ecore Editor.

public void mouseDoubleClick(MouseEvent event)
{
if (event.button == 1)
{
try
{

getEditorSite().getPage().showView("org.eclipse.ui.views.PropertySheet");
}
catch (PartInitException exception)
{
EcoreEditorPlugin.INSTANCE.log(exception);
}
}
}
});

Hello,
Thanks Ed, but in my case the property view is actually opened.

My problem is that when I click on an edit part of my diagram which is actually binded to nothing of the semantic model, but if someone click on that edit part I would like to display a particular EEF view (i.e the property sheet of a given model element) so that (s)he can edit it seamlessly.

Anyway, thanks for your advice it helped me to understand some useful stuff.

Regards,

Xavier

I tried to override the PropertiesEditionSection.resolveSemanticObject(Object object) as described here : http://eclipsercpdev.blogspot.com/2011/10/use-eclipse-eef-as-property-sheet-for.html in order to return the desired EObject when I click on my EditPart of the diagram.
But the view is not updated accordingly. Only the title is updated.

Any idea?

Regards,

Xavier

Sorry, my bad, it's the opposite : But the title of the view is not updated accordingly. Only the view is updated.

Hello?
Is the solution I implemented is the best way to do it?
I'm not sure because I had to code it with introspection in order not to introduce cyclic dependencies between edit plugin and diagramming one.

Any idea people?

Regards,

Xavier

Hi Xavier,

It's a good way to do that. I don't understand why this cause a cyclic
dependency with your diagram plugin ?
