Hi there,
I couldn't get compartment item copy/paste work, even following the
instruction in
http://wiki.eclipse.org/GMF_Newsgroup_Q_and_A#How_to_make_co py.2Fpaste_work_on_compartments.3F

I searched the topic related with copy/paste and only found this
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.modeling.gmf/m sg16818.html
I also tried suggestions in that thread with no success.
Looks like copy/paste(especially within compartment) is still a challenge.

Maybe I missed something, could someone give me a hand!

Thanks in advance!

Paul

Ok, I managed making it work by exploring a little bit deeper. I post the
steps here in case someone else runs into the same issue.

1). *CompartmentEditPart.java, modify createDefaultEditPolicies() to
install a new edit policy
installEditPolicy(EditPolicy.CONTAINER_ROLE, new
ContainerEditPolicy());

2). Let *CompartmentEditPart.java implements ISurfaceEditPart(which is an
gmf internal interface)

3). Fork NotationClipboardOperationHelper.java like the Q and A suggested.

Now here are my new questions, could GMF team do something to
1). move ISurfaceEditPart from internal package to public
2). correct the code in
NotationClipboardOperationHelper.getSemanticPasteTarget so that no fork is
needed (since it involves the legal issue if we want to re-distribute GMF
code)

if they are in the plan, when is it going to happen? Galileo release?

Thanks,
Paul
