I have the following problem:
I get an itemname from a map transformation and than I want to check the value (open/closed) inside an if clause. This i my line to find the name in the map file.
val windows = transform("MAP", "raeume_2.map", raum) as ContactItem
But I get the following error from VSCode:
Cannot cast from String to ContactItem(org.eclipse.xtext.xbase.validation.IssueCodes.invalid_cast)
I have no idea what to do. I think the val windows is a string and needs to be converted to an “Item”.
Thank you for your help!
That’s correct. The task is not converting a string to an Item, but instead finding a pre-existing Item with a name matching your string, right?
There’s more than one way to do that.
