Override Attribute Initializers

Note that for elements that have attributes you can also override an inherited attribute's initial value, using the element context menu option Advanced | Override Attribute Initializers to display the Override Attribute Initializers dialog.

In this dialog, select the variable name and enter a new initial value.

If required, type a note in the Note field.

When you display inherited attributes, Enterprise Architect merges the list of attributes from all ancestors and merges the attribute initializers, so that the final child Class displays the correct attribute set and initial values.
