Defining the Appearance of the Generated Language Designer

You can define how the elements of your domain-specific language designer will appear on the diagram and in the Toolbox, the DSL Explorer, and the Properties window. For the diagram, you can customize the shapes that represent the model elements, the shape decorators (graphics or text that are used to distinguish kinds of elements), and the diagram surface itself. For the Toolbox, you can specify the icon, pointer icon, tooltip, and other properties of the tool. For the DSL Explorer, you can show or hide nodes and customize the appearance of the nodes. For the Properties window, you can specify whether a property is displayed, whether it is read-only, and to which category it belongs.
