Title: Custom Toolbox Creation
Post by: Polymorph on August 11, 2016, 01:34:52 am
I am defining a custom toolbox by creating a MDG Technology.

I have successfully created a toolbox using the Profile Helper (see http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/modeling_tools/create_toolbox_profiles_using_.html (http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/modeling_tools/create_toolbox_profiles_using_.html)) and have managed to drop elements from it onto a diagram  :D

However, if I try to add an element directly to the browser (Right click | Add Element), although I can find my MDG toolbox, there are no elements listed in it  ???

I've clearly missed a step somewhere but I have no idea where!

Any help would be appreciated (thanks for your continuing support - I seem to be monopolising this forum at the moment!!!)

The new element dialog doesn't list packages.

So the only way I can create packages using my toolbox is by creating a package diagram and then dropping my custom element onto it?

I guess, that the point is "an element is not a package" and vice versa. You could expect your packages in the "New Package" dialog, but that does not have a stereotype drop down.

As previously stated Sparx doesn't seem to let you add packages through the browser. One way round this could be to set it up as a model pattern through your MDG?
