Transform Template Parameter Substitution

If you want to provide access in a transformation template to data concerning the transformation of a Template Binding connector's binding parameter substitution in the model, you can use the Template Parameter substitution macros.

Intermediary Language

Template Parameter Substitutions are represented in the Intermediary language as:

     TemplateParameterSubstitution

     {

          Formal { FormalProperties }

          Actual { ActualProperties }

     }

For example:

     TemplateParameterSubstitution

     {

          Formal

          {

               name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionFormal%%qt%

          }

          Actual

          {

               name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionActual%%qt%

               %TRANSFORM_CLASSIFIER("Class", parameterSubstitutionActualClassifier)%

          }

     }

Formal Properties or Actual Properties

FormalProperties and ActualProperties are zero, or one instance of one of these properties:

  • name
  • classifier

Transform of Parameter Substitution Actual parameter

If the Actual parameter is assigned a String Expression, it will transform as Actual name. You can assign the Actual Classifier if you know the GUID:

TemplateParameterSubstitution

(

Formal

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionFormal%%qt%

}

Actual

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionActual%%qt%

classifier=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionActualClassifier%%qt%

}

}

If you want the Actual parameter to be transformed so that its Classifier is assigned with an element that is transformed, then use TRANSFORM_CLASSIFIER or TRANSFORM_REFERENCE, as shown:

TemplateParameterSubstitution

{

Formal

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionFormal%%qt%

}

Actual

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionActual%%qt%

%TRANSFORM_CLASSIFIER("Class", parameterSubstitutionActualClassifier)%

}

}

Or

TemplateParameterSubstitution

{

Formal

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionFormal%%qt%

}

Actual

{

name=%qt%%parameterSubstitutionActual%%qt%

%TRANSFORM_REFERENCE("Class", parameterSubstitutionActualClassifier)%

}

}
