The reason for this design is that when we tried to keep the parents of expressions in the data model we ran into issues in the expressions view. In the expressions view the user can type in an _expression_ such as "f.a" and we were not able to re-create the parents of this _expression_ they way we did when user expanded the elements in the tree.-----Original Message----- From: cdt-dev-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:cdt-dev-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Marc Khouzam Sent: Montag, 12.

Subject: RE: [cdt-dev] DSF (GDB only?) question: Can an IExpressionDMC be aparent of another IExpressionDMC As you point out above, you can't have IExpressionDMContext be a child of another IExpressionDMContext, at least not with DSF-GDB. Each _expression_ is independent if its parent. For example for f a b The expressions are f f.a f.b where f.a and f.b don't know they are children of f, except from their _expression_ string.
In the view model the tree itself holds the parent-child relationships. During the content update you can examine the parents of an element by looking at IViewUpdate.getTreePath(). When building a delta you can do the same thing by looking at the parent delta and its parents.Yes, I can understand this. I there something like a parent-child relationship on the view model side? I started looking at the IVMContext, but couldn't find something. It must be somewhere, otherwise the views wouldn't show trees, right?
The reason why I ask is I'm trying to implement IVMNode.buildDelta in GDBVariableNode for an event that requests more children for a variable/_expression_ provided by a pretty printer.
