Create Structured Tagged Values

To create your own Tagged Value based on a predefined structured Tagged Value Type, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the Settings | UML menu option. The UML Types dialog displays. Select the Tagged Value Types tab.
  2. Click on the New button.
  3. In the Tag Name field type an appropriate Tagged Value name.
  4. In the Description field type the purpose of the Tagged Value, if required.
  5. In the Detail field copy-and-paste or type the syntax of the predefined structured Tagged Value Type.
    In the example above (which is used in the definition of a field to enable a user to set a sports handicap) the predefined type is Spin, with the Upper and Lower Bounds set for the field values. (Spin is the Microsoft term for selection arrows in a variable field - the user clicks on the arrows to increase or decrease the value between the upper and lower bound limits.)
  6. Click on the Save button.

The Tagged Value type displays in the Defined Tag Types list.
