Geometric Shapes Example


This guide describes the geometric shapes example in the SDK.  This example demonstrates a very simple editor for creating geometric shapes and some basic capability for editing and rendering them..




This example plug-in is named org.eclipse.gmf.examples.runtime.diagram.geoshapes.  It allows creation of a simple editor based on a resource file with extension *.geo.  The editor is actually a container for the geometric shape capability defined in the plug-in org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.geoshapes.  There is no extended contribution in the examples plug-in except for the providers for creating the diagram views and EditPart for the diagram editor.  The geometric shapes functionality is actually contributed by the org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.geoshapes plug-in.


Refer to this example if you need:

  1. How to set-up a resource based GMF diagram layer editor based on a specific extension.
  2. How to inherit notation based functionality that is provided for by the diagram layer.
  3. How to integrate the property view into your editor.
