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.

33
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: http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/automation_and_scripting/taggedvalue.html

The Validation features in the Project class are not looking useful either: http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/automation_and_scripting/project_2.html

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????


34
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.

Scenario:
- 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.

36
Though I think Sparx really needs fix this problem anyway.

REQUEST
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.

CONTEXT
HTML report of the Sparx model repository is generated every night

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

38
Hi Geert,
As I explained we need a url of the page image only (without any frame, without any tree browser).

MY QUESTION
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?

Thanks

Alain

Great idea!
Thank you Geert.

When a tag grouping is changed in an MDG the Synchronized Stereotype function does not update the grouping on existing elements.

(almost a) work around: Move existing elements to a diagram.
However when there are hundreds of elements than Sparx freezes when dragging the elements on the diagram. Equivalent to Sparx CRASHING.

This bug makes Sparx EA look like a toy. Users are very disappointed.

This is our third request since 2016 for a descent work around (program, script.. whatever).

Bugs and Issues / Re: Virtual Connectors do not execute Shape Scripts
« on: December 13, 2017, 09:46:59 pm »
OK. Let's say it is an incomplete implementation and as a result, virtual connectors are useless when MDGs are used.

I wonder what is the percentage of users that do not use MDGs?

Bugs and Issues / Virtual Connectors do not execute Shape Scripts
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:28:10 am »
When we create a virtual connector, only the original item is displayed as requested by the shape script.

The ghost is ill-mannered as it simply ignores the shape script. I mean the ghost doesn't bother and it shows as a UML element.

Is there a trick for taming the ghost in the shape script or is it simply a bug?

If it is a bug (ghosts can also have bugs), will this be fixed for version 14?

Cheers,
Alain

Users very often have to maintain several diagrams that share common elements including their layout.

When we drag a source diagram 1 into target diagrams 2 and 3, one additional option (besides "diagram frame" etc...) would be to
- drop the laid out source diagram objects from diagram 1 into the target diagrams 2 and 3 (not a picture)
- keep the target diagram layout synchronized with the source diagram layout
That way, in each target diagram 2 and 3 we can re-use the layout of the source diagram 1 and add specific elements and connectors.

In other words, in each specific target diagram, we should be able to re-use a source diagram as a "dynamic layer of connectable diagram objects".

Example 1:
- Shared/Common part of the diagram:  Business Function Landscape
- Specific diagrams: Information owned by functions, Organizations performing functions, Applications supporting functions, Domain architect in charge of function, functional heat map, roles that belong to functions...

Example 2:
- Shared/Common part of the diagram:  Organization structure
- Specific diagrams: Organization Managers, Organization Locations, Organization-owned Applications
