The types in this namespace help you to define tools that work with more than one DSL model. ModelBus provides a mechanism for defining a reference to an element in a model file. This can be used, for example, to make links from one file to another. For more information, see Integrating Models by using Visual Studio Modelbus.
This defines the AdapterAlreadyRegisteredException class, which is thrown to signal duplicate registration of the same IAdapter instance.
This defines the AdapterCreationException class, which is thrown when a call to CreateAdapter() fails.
This defines the AdapterManagerAlreadyRegisteredException class, which is thrown to signal duplicate registration of the same IAdapterManager type.
This file defines the AdapterManagerNotRegisteredException class, which is thrown when a ModelBusAdapter manager is requested but is not registered.
This defines the AdapterNotRegisteredException class, which is thrown when a ModelBusAdapter is requested but is not registered.
Exception type thrown when an adapter manager is asked to handle a type of adapter that it does not support.
Exception type thrown when an adapter manager is asked to serialized type of ModelBusAdapterReference that it does not support.
Class to provide a MEF-based way of configuring the ModelBus
Custom attribute used to indicate that an adapter manager supports any arbitrary LogicalAdapterId. Using this attribute on an AdapterManager implies that the AdapterManager can be used generically to support multiple different Adapters or multiple different Models. The MEF based ModelBus ConfigurationManager will query such AdapterManagers to discover which AdapterIds they support at runtime rather than just rely on MEF meta-data thus allowing the AdapterManager to dynamically support arbitrary models.
Custom attribute used to indicate that an adapter manager handles a particular type of adapter
Custom attribute used to indicate that a ModelBus part works in a particular ModelBus host.
Exception class for invalid adapter manager exceptions
ModelBus allows tools to interoperate in a loosely coupled fashion.
A ModelBusAdapter is an object that serves as a bridge between the ModelBus and the underlying model. ModelBusAdapter instances are created by ModelBusAdapterManager, and the operations a ModelBusAdapter exposes are defined by the ModelBusAdapter contract of the ModelBusAdapterManager.
The ModelBusAdapterManager is used to create instances of the supported ModelBusAdapter, and manage their lifetime. Derive from this class to create a ModelBusAdapterManager for your own DSL.
Base class for all adapter references
This defines the ModelBusException class, which is the base of all exceptions used by ModelBus architecture.
Encapsulates a reference to a model. The following variants are supported: reference to a model; reference to an element in a model; reference to a model and a view of that model; reference to an element in a model with a view.
Custom DomainProperty serializer to serialize/deserializer ModelBusReferences
Converter that can convert ModelBusReferences to strings.
This defines the ModelBusResetException class, which is thrown when Backplane.Reset() fails.
ModelBusView is an object obtained from a ModelBusAdapter for a Model. The ModelBusView allows the client to create, access and manipulate the design surface or editor for the model.
Wraps a domain-specific language model. Derive from this class to create an adapter for your DSL.
Standard DSL implementation of an adapter reference.
This is a pluggable class that a ModelBusAdapter can use for configuring management of the underlying Document represented by this ModelBusAdapter.
This defines the PresentationAlreadyCreatedException class, which is thrown when a call to CreatePresentation() is made on a service that already has a presentation of the given type.
This defines the PresentationCreationException class, which is thrown when a call to CreatePresentation() fails.
When a ModelBusReference is serialized, the serialized string can be made relative to some context information such as a file path. When the string is deserialized, you can provide the same context or a different context. ReferenceContext is a dictionary that stores the context information. The set of keys and types stored in a context depend on the class of ModelBusAdapter that you use.
This defines the ReferenceFormatException class, which is thrown when a reference does not conform to the correct format.
Represents a basic DSL based model adapter.
Class the holds the adapter manager's supported type and it's display name
This defines the ViewOperationException class, which is thrown when an creation of ModelBusView or an operation on a ModelBusView instance fails.
Obtain an instance of this type from a service provider and use it to obtain an adapter that can be used to open another model.
Interface implemented by ModelBus adapters that expose the root element of the model.
Interface implemented by ModelBus adapters that expose the store.
The service interface for the Visual Studio ModelBus service.
