Edit Parameter Kind

You can edit operation parameter kinds such as [in], [inout] and [out] directly from a diagram element by element, using the Element Keywords and Classifiers menu. This enables you to rapidly assign the parameter directly from a diagram. To use this feature follow the steps below:

  1. In Enterprise Architect, open the diagram containing the element.
  2. Click on the element, and on the operation to edit within the element. The item line is highlighted in a lighter shade (the default is white), to indicate that it has been selected.
  3. Right-click on the item. The context menu displays.
  4. Select the Edit Selected menu option (or press [F2]) to enable you to edit the item directly from the diagram. The name of the item is highlighted.
  5. Right-click on the item name to display the context menu.
  6. Select the appropriate menu option for the parameter kind value: [in], [inout] and [out]. The diagram is updated to reflect the change.
