Model Validation Broadcasts

Perform Model Validation from an Add-In

Using Enterprise Architect broadcasts, it is possible to define a set of rules that are evaluated when the user instructs Enterprise Architect to perform model validation. An Add-In that performs model validation would involve the following broadcast events:

  • EA_OnInitializeUserRules is intercepted in order to define rule categories and rules.
  • EA_OnStartValidation can be intercepted to perform any required processing prior to validation.
  • The following functions intercept each request to validate an individual element, package, diagram, connector, attribute and method:
  • EA_OnEndValidation can be intercepted to perform any required clean-up after validation has completed.
