General Board / Where is my pattern that has been embedded to MDG?
« on: September 20, 2018, 04:11:59 pm »
I created an UML profile with a bunch of stereotypes.
I also created a pattern in which classes of these stereotypes are used.
Profile and pattern are added to an MDG.

When importing this MDG to another model I see the toolbox offering my stereotypes -> As expected :)
What I am missing is my pattern.
Where is it?
Does my MDG need something additional to make the pattern usable and selectable somewhere?

General Board / Re: Empty tags of a class not shown in diagram
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:40:20 pm »
OK, thanks Simon :'(.

Inserting such a space would might be an option, but I would have used displaying empty tags for a quick overview of which tags are still empty.
I decided to add a red colored circle as decoration via a shape script if one of the tags are empty ("red bubble --> something is missing").

If showing tags is activated in a diagram OR in teh individual "show compartment visibility" of an element (e.g. class):
Why are only tags with filled out values shown in EA 14.x?
How to show all (really all) tags of an element (no matter if the tags are filled with values or not)?

As qwerty write EA 12 showed all tags, but EA 14 does not, only the filled ones (EA 13 behavior?).

Simons approach worked well.
Many thanks for that.

General Board / Create read-only tag in an UML profile
« on: September 14, 2018, 11:58:39 pm »
does anybody know how to make a tag read-only?

We created an own UML profile with some stereotypes for classes.
For one stereotype I would like to make one tag "read-only". The tag has a default value, and it would be nice if the user, who creates a class of such a stereotype cannot change the value of that tag.

I just observed that EA 14.1 does not display tags with no value (empty tags) in a diagram, even if the compartment visibility is set for tags (or even inherited tags).
As soon as I give the empty tags a value they are displayed.

Is this behavior normal/intended?
How is the behavior in EA version <= EA 14.0?

I would like to see all tags, even those with no value, if compartment visibility is set for tags.

since a long time (>> 1 year) I have a really annoying behavior when creating a message/call in a sequence chart.
Today it really makes me >:( >:( >:( >:(.

When creating a message between existing messages the message jumps down after creation.
Sometimes it is located at the very bottom, sometimes somewhere in the middle of the diagram.
I always have to move it with press Alt-key to the intended location.

This does not happen the created message is the last in the sequence.
The behavior is the same in EA 12 and 13 (14 not yet tested).

Any idea what might cause this behavior?
Or even better: how to get rid of this?
I do not think this is intended.
A re-installation did not help.

General Board / Re: Where are user passwords stored?
« on: April 20, 2018, 12:19:22 am »
I found the new password storage.
It is in table t_xref. All entries with name = 'SHA-256' are passwords of users in table t_secuser (passwords that have been created with EA version >= 11).
The guid of a user can be found in t_xref.client.

Maybe this information also helps anyone else :).

It is true that there is still a column named "passwd", but that is the old password hash that has been used before EA 11.
Somehwere else are the new SHA hashes,but not in t_secuser

General Board / Where are user passwords stored?
« on: April 19, 2018, 07:43:12 pm »
In EA 11 Sparx has changed to a SHA hash of the user security passwords.
Along with that change, the storage location of the user passwords has changed. Before the passwords where in table t_secuser, now they are somewhere else.
Does anybody know where the passwords are stored?

General Board / Re: Weird copy/paste diagram behaviour
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:52:06 pm »
OK, copying the diagram content instead of the diagram itself should have been my idea :).
That works for us. It even is faster than copying a diagram incl. content.

But nevertheless the observed behavior, as linked by Nizam, is really weird and illogical.

Thanks a lot.

General Board / Weird copy/paste diagram behaviour
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:15:20 pm »
I observed a strange behavior when copying and pasting a diagram than I cannot explain (EA 13.5 and EA 12.1).
Source diagram:
- contains class elements
- contains instances of classes
All elements are in the same package as the source diagram.

Newly pasted diagram (paste as shallow copy):
Good: The diagram also contains classes and instances, and the classes refer to the original elements (links to them).
Bad: The instances are copies of the "original instances". So in the project browser now I have copies of all instances. The new diagram now links to the duplicated instances, instead of linking to the original ones.

Any other copy method (deep, smart) does also duplicated the elements in the diagram, as expected. But this is not what I want.

Any idea if this behavior is normal? And (more important) why is this normal?
Any idea how to get a copy/clone of a diagram, without duplicating the elements in the copied diagram?

How about this:,37561.msg235657.html#msg235657

Maybe the code from the last post helps.

General Board / What is a "property"?
« on: July 31, 2017, 11:42:24 pm »

since several weeks I am asking myself the hell is a "property" when dropping a class element in a diagram.
When dropping a class element in a diagram a dialog appears asking of what kind the dropped element shall be created: Link, Instance, Child, Property.

Links, Instance and Child are perfectly clear.
I just don't know what a property might be.

Can anyone bring light into my darkness?
All explanations in the internet did not really help (maybe bad explained or I am too stupid for that).

Many thanks :).
Tag grouping is OK for me. Not needed tags can simply be left empty.
