Tags Generalization
« on: April 27, 2005, 12:25:25 am »
Hi,

I'd like to design a UML model, with a Use Case Diagram. I have two Actors, for example Parent and Child: Parent is the parent of Child (Child generalize it).
Parent has a tag named "rights" valued "read".
Of course, Child inherits it, and if I set a new value to rights, it'll overwrite the Parent's value. (For example with "write".)
But what I want is the following: I'd like to preserve the Parent's value and ADD to it the Child's new value, for example: "read"+"write". I'd like to use them together.
Could you help me with some idea, how can I do that?

Thanks a lot,
Agnes ???

Why not have the tag(s) be Read and Write and the value is set to Y or N for both?

Because it's a more difficult: our system is more complicated, and we don't want to use separated tags for every value.

Try "Allow duplicate Tags" from the options. In that way you see both tags (parent AND child). Actually it does not join both, but you see both.

Where can I find this? ("Allow duplicate Tags")

Thanks,
Agnes

Tools / Options / Objects / lower right checkmark
Somehow hard to find (like most options)
