Filtering Matrices
« on: September 29, 2017, 11:20:04 pm »
Matrices can be filtered by (element) Type -  e.g., Actor, Class, Component and so on - but is there a way to also filter the contents of a matrix by stereotype. To give some context to the question, the stereotypes I have in mind are extensions of the base classes using a UML profile.

In a nutshell we are ending up with matrices with too much superfluous data, if we could filter by stereotype they will just have the relevant data.

Note the source of the row or columns of the matrix could be a selected package or a search. If you select a search, you can specify the search filter using the parameters you want, as the stereotype and any other.

That's the route we've taken.

We've found we use a lot of TVs to enable us to control which items appear on which matrix.

Thanks Arquesoft and Paolo. Will give a try.

Paolo - what do you mean with TVs.
