I have a RCP application which has a multi page editor with first page as xtext editor. I want to add second page as GMF based diagram editor.

1. Is it possible to use same file as input to both editors? The editorInput of multi page editor is a file editor input which referes to my model file. Will this editor input work well for graphical editor as well?

2. Is there an example somewhere which demostrates this?

Thanks
Arvind

Hi Arvind

This used to be very difficult. I found a solution about four years ago
as part of the GMT/UMLX support but I'm afraid I've forgotten all the
details of the incompatibilities. MultiPageEditorPart seemed inflexible.

The distinction between editors and views is eliminated in e4, so the
3.x problems may vanish in e4, or at least may have a much simpler
solution. I suggest searching for the successors of MultiPageEditorPart
and any associated examples.

Regards

Hi Edward,

Thanks for your quick reply. I am using XText version 2.1. Will this work fine if I migrate to e4 or do i need to move to higher version of xText?

Also can you tell me what is the alternative to MultiPageEditor in e4

Thanks
Arvind

Hi Arvind

I'm afraid that I cannot help further. Like many other Eclipse
committers, I check that my code will work on e4, but I do not exploit
the facilities of e4 since we cannot mandate that all our users switch
to e4.
