Multiple stereotypes for Requirement elements
« on: June 20, 2009, 06:58:20 am »
The Stereotype Selector help page shows how to select more than one stereotype for an element. I cannot figure out how to get to the Stereotypes dialog from a Requirement element properties dialog. Anyone know how?

Also, the Requirement dialog presents Type rather than stereotype. I can type in the stereotype but I'd like to get the stereotypes in the pulldown rather than the type list. Any tips?

Thanks,
Dan

Try:

1) select View Properties
2) Open the Drop Down List on Stereotype
3) select "browse other stereotypes"

Maybe that brings you to the point you want.

Cheers, OneCent

Ah, thank you, OneCent. The trick is to use the Properties view panel rather than the context menu Properties... dialog. It looks like each time I select a stereotype it gets added to the list and selecting the blank line erases the currently displayed one.

Is there a way to view the list of stereotypes I've added to the element?

There is an interesting interaction between stereotype and type. Depending on which stereotypes I add, the type sometimes changes.
