Stereotype Visibility

You control the visibility of applied stereotypes using three options in the diagram Properties dialog. Select:

  • The Show Element Stereotypes checkbox to show or hide all element stereotypes in the current diagram
  • The Show Feature Stereotypes checkbox to show or hide all attribute and operation stereotypes in the current diagram
  • The Use Stereotype Icons checkbox to display icons, instead of strings, for those stereotypes that have icons defined.

The example below shows how a Class would appear having multiple stereotypes applied to it:

Use Stereotype Icons disabled: displays all the applied stereotypes in a comma-separated string within gullimets.

StereotypeIconDisabled

Use Stereotype Icons enabled: displays icons for those stereotypes with icons defined. Stereotypes without icons defined are still displayed in the comma-separated string.
