A long shortcoming in the automatic generation of domain-specific modeling (DSM) editors has been the lack of user experience, in particular, user interaction adapted to its user. The current practice relies solely on the abstract and concrete syntax of the language, restricting the user interaction with the editor to a set of generic interactions built-in the tool. We claim that the interaction with the editor should also be tailored to the domain or user profile to increase the user experience. Although there are multiple viewpoints of interactions (e.g., I/O devices, behavior of the editor), each aspect of the design of a DSM editor should be specified at the right level of abstraction for its user expert. In our work, we anchor the semantics of all these aspects in a Statecharts model that controls the DSM IDE. However, since the different viewpoints are expressed in radically different languages at distinct levels of abstraction, their transformation to Statecharts is quite complex. In this paper, we focus on the semantic anchoring of all these languages based on a RETE algorithm to provide the user with a custom interaction with the DSM editor. Our implementation shows that we can produce correct and responsive results by emulating existing DSM editors.
