Wednesday, April 20, 2005 5:21 AMI am looking into extending the CD to use it as the GUI for my code generation tools. I wanted to:
1) Add custom (code generation) objects to the class designer tool palate
2) When my custom objects are dropped on the designer surface I would like to provide a range of custom properties/actions on them
3) Support custom types of relationships between these objects
4) Interrogate the class diagram to extract the custom objects and their relationships
Can anyone offer some advice on where to start? I realise that the API's for the CD may not be documented, I plan to reverse engineer any relevant code and check it out this weekend to see i there is any way I can acheive this...any direction would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have a good answer right now, but in some time (a week or two I hope), there might be more information available on the subject - I'll make sure to reply here when and if that happens.
