Tagged Value Substitution Macros

Tagged Value macros are a special form of field substitution macros, which provide access to element tags and the corresponding Tagged Values. They can be used in one of two ways:

·Direct Substitution
·Conditional Substitution

Direct Substitution

This form of the macro directly substitutes the value of the named tag into the output.

Structure: %<macroName>:"<tagName>"%

<macroName> can be one of:


This corresponds to the tags for attributes, Classes, operations, Packages, parameters, connectors with both ends, elements at both ends of connectors and connectors including the attribute end.

<tagName> is a string representing the specific tag name.




Conditional Substitution

This form of the macro mimics the conditional substitution defined for field substitution macros.

Structure: %<macroName>:"<tagName>" (  == "<test>" )  ? <subTrue> (  : <subFalse>  ) %


·<macroName> and <tagName> are as defined above
·(  <text>  )  denotes that <text> is optional
·<test> is a string representing a possible value for the macro
·<subTrue> and <subFalse> can be a combination of quoted strings and the keyword value; where the value is used, it gets replaced with the macro's value in the output


%opTag:"opInline" ? "inline" : ""%

%opTag:"opInline" ? "inline"%

%classTag:"unsafe" == "true" ? "unsafe" : ""%

%classTag:"unsafe" == "true" ? "unsafe"%


Tagged Value macros use the same naming convention as field substitution macros.
