Behavior Call Arguments

You define the arguments of a Behavior Call using the Arguments dialog, which you display by clicking on the Edit button on the Call tab of the element Properties dialog.


  1. In the Name field, type the name of an argument to map to the behavior.
  2. In the Parameters field, click on the drop-down arrow and select a behaviors parameter from the list of parameters associated with the behavior.
  3. In the Value field, set any required value.
  4. If a diagram is displayed, and if required, select the Show in current diagram checkbox to add an Action Pin on the diagram.
  5. Click on the Save button.
  6. If appropriate, click on the New button and repeat steps 1 to 5 for another argument:parameter mapping.

If you attempt to map a newly created argument to a parameter that is already associated with a different argument, Enterprise Architect identifies the mapping and prompts you to confirm that you intend to change the association.
