Hi,

the EA Example model has the media player to explain SysML concepts with EA.

The IBD shows for a property '<name> / <type>' like ' cpu / Processor - TMS320VC5507'. I would expect simple the name like 'cpu'.

If a select 'show element type' than I see the type with the well known ':' like ' cpu / Processor - TMS320VC5507:Processor - TMS320VC5507'.

How does that come and is there a possibility to switch it off.

Thanks in advance,

Helmut

You should get that notation for properties being displayed on an instance.

<slot> / <role> : <type>

An IBD isn't working with instances, so you shouldn't be seeing that notation there.

(The notation is described in UML 2.5 section 9.8.4 and is demonstrated in figure 11.21)
