Does anybody know whether it is possible to deploy an add-in using ClickOnce Security and Deployment?

The goal is to
- enable users to install an add-in without admin rights
- update the add-in automatically when it has changed


Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / MDGs and strict connector syntax
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:10:15 pm »
We have a connector validation implemented for our MDG.

How can we make sure that...
Step 1: when the strict connector syntax in ON, this only applies to UML and not to stereotypes derived from UML
Step 2: when the strict connector syntax is switched ON/OFF, our MDG-specific connectors are validated/not validated (same as for BPMN)



Suggestions and Requests / Enable tooltips on HTML reports

We would like to see element notes when hovering on elements in generated HTML reports.

End users sometimes want to create several views of the same element on the same diagram.
They also want to tell which connector needs to be visible for each view on the element (diagram object).
They don't want to create a "virtual connector". How could they think about such terminology when searching the documentation?

1) Bug: The documentation provides documentation on the implementation i.e. "virtual connector"
It should instead on the end user's feature i.e. getting several views on the same element on the same diagram.

2) Questioning the implementation
Why not creating virtual diagram objects instead of "virtual connectors". These virtual diagram objects would not visible in the project browser (like text, boundary etc...)??
Users would then explicitly hide the connectors they don't what to see for the virtual object.
So it would be also more flexible for the end-user.
And it would be a direct implementation of the requirement.

So that we can
- Export only changed elements (and import in other tools)
- Create reports on last changes

If we could also have the author that would be even better

Thank you Geert and Arshad

We can find the default property types in that table:
select * from t_propertytypes

And the tagged value in that table:
select * from t_objectproperties where property = 'vision'

and we have the possible values in the Notes column with equivalent access through the API.

I was hoping there would be some predefined validation. It is really weird that something as basic as that isn't available in the API.

But what API can we use to perform the validation (in a C# program)?

We can't find any equivalent to "Validate" in the "TaggedValue" class:

The Validation features in the Project class are not looking useful either:

Since the tagged value type (e.g. enumeration, date...) has been defined in the MDG there should be something at run time that uses these definitions for validation????

Before importing elements from an Excel file, we would like to check whether the imported tagged values are compliant with the type defined in the element stereotype (part of a MDG).

Does anybody know how to validate the to-be-imported tagged values at runtime?

Prerequisite for reproducing the problems
- Create a package PV1 with 3 diagrams each showing same elements.

- Clone package PV1 as new version PV2

- In PV2...
- Open cloned diagram D1 and filter to version
- Create a new element ENEW
=> PROBLEM 1: ENEW is greyed out, though this is clearly a change.

- Clone an element ECHANGED. The element is properly cloned and it is no longer greyed out.
- Open cloned diagram D2 that shows same elements as D1
=> PROBLEM 2: ECHANGED is greyed out, though it has been clearly changed.

Though I think Sparx really needs fix this problem anyway.

Get a variant of this syntax (http://mysite/?guid={xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx}) to get the url of the generated IMAGE.
I mean ONLY THE IMAGE (png). No frame and no project browser.

HTML report of the Sparx model repository is generated every night

Integrate html report page images into other web sites (SharePoint and WordPress) using some stable urls to these images.

Hi Geert,
As I explained we need a url of the page image only (without any frame, without any tree browser).

HTML report of the Sparx model repository is generated every night

Integrate html report page images into other web sites (SharePoint and WordPress) using some stable urls to these page images.

Is there any existing variant of this syntax (http://mysite/?guid={xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx}) to get the url of a generated image?
Or is there any reusable Web Style template content/code that would do the trick?



Great idea!
Thank you Geert.
