Tagged Value Types

Tagged Values are used in a variety of places within Enterprise Architect to specify additional information about an element or connector. The Tagged Value Types tab of the UML Types dialog enables a Technology Developer to rapidly create Tagged Values, using a range of predefined structured Tagged Values to create structured tags that adhere to a specific format. For example, for model features that use the predefined tag Boolean you can use the Tagged Values window to assign a value of True or False and no other value.

You can also add default Tagged Value names and create predefined reference data Tagged Value types and custom masked Tagged Value types.

Any Tagged Value names created display in the drop-down lists of Tagged Value names in the Tagged Value dialogs for elements, operations and attributes. For more information regarding the use of Tagged Values see the Tagged Values Window topic.

To display the Tagged Value Types tab, select the Settings | UML menu option to display the UML Types dialog, and click on the Tagged Value Types tab.


For further information on adding and modifying Tagged Values, see Tagged Value Types.


You can transport these Tagged Value Type definitions between models, using the Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options on the Tools menu. Tagged Value Types are exported as Property Types.
