Open External Tools
When configuring custom tools in Enterprise Architect, by selecting Tools | Customize > Tools, you can:
|·||Specify the custom tool (application) using the Command field|
|·||Define a file to open using the Arguments field|
This configuration opens the file c:\Temp\Customer Account.cls using Wordpad. If you save from within Wordpad the initial directory is c:\Temp.
If there are any spaces in the paths in the Command, Arguments or Initial directory fields, you must enclose the whole path in double quotes. For example:
"c:\Temp\Customer Account.cls" must have quotes, but c:\Temp\CustomerAccount.cls does not have to have quotes.
This example opens the file c:\Temp\Customer Account.cls using Visual Basic (VB). As VB is not installed with the operating system, the whole file path for VB must be included in the Command field; you can locate and select this path using the ( ... ) (Browse) button. Again, if you save from within VB the initial directory is c:\Temp.
