Eclipse Graphiti, How to create “CustomFeature's create & get all Elements”?
I have 2 questions, maybe somebody can give me an idea how i can do this
I've created new "testFeature" extended from AbstractCustomFeature and can call it in my Diagram. How can i get a List which contains all Elements from the Diagram?(i want to update their names and colors at start and later)
My second question is: I'm trying to add some Elements to the Diagram without drag and drop them from the palette.
For example i have some Elements saved in the Diagram and my "model say i miss 3 Elements in the Diagram". I want to write an Custom Feature, which draw/put missing Elements in the Graphiti Diagram with just one/two clicks, maybe i need to use Zest at this part? but at the beginning i just want to put few elements without drop them from the Palette, how can i do this?
Maybe somebody can give me direction?
Thanks for your help!

Is the object already created, inside the EMF model, and you only want it to add its graphical counterpart to the diagram? If so, you need to instantiate and execute yourself your corresponding XXXAddFeature class.
Elsewhere (more probable, if you want to mimic some drag-n-drop from the palette), you must call the proper XXXCreateFeature, which will add ("create", in Graphiti parlance) the element to the model (typically, the create body will at the end invoke addGraphicalRepresentation() which will also add the corresponding graphical element to the diagram by calling, internally the appropiate XXXAddFeature).
