    New GPD Property Page

    Matt Jackson Newbie

      I am working on some GPD modifications, and am looking to make a property page for the decision node. I have created a test class that extends "PropertyPage" etc. Added it to plugin.xml, but when I right click on a decision it does not show. That makes sense because I cannot find anywhere where a property page is assigned to the the figure. (i.e. where do we say when right clicking on a figure popup the context menu. then when you click on properties if it is a decision node then show these pages?)

      Thanks

          Matt,

          <page
           id="org.jbpm.ui.DecisionWhateverPage"
           name="Whatever"
           objectClass="org.jbpm.ui.model.Decision"
           class="org.jbpm.ui.properties.DecisionWhateverPropertyPage">
          </page>


          This would be the way to contribute the page to a decision node. I am by the way very interested in this extension. I assume this will be usable for all jbpm users that use decision nodes. Would you mind to contribute it so that it gets included in the distribution?

          Regards,
          Koen

            Ok, so that code is what I am doing. When I right click on the decision node and select properties I do not see the new "Whatever" page. ..

            I will keep trying today. My page class must be missing something...

              Koen,

              I actually have another quick question for you. In the NodeHeaderFigure class, or any class for that matter, is there a way to get a specific node object instead of just the name and type. Is there a class taht will return a node given a name or type? I looked but could not see such a method anywhere?

              Thanks again

                No, you want to ask that info to the NodeEditPart (the controller), which has a reference to its model.
