Is there an API that can do a direct update on data on DB?

General Board / RightToLeft char in EA
« on: January 24, 2017, 03:25:43 am »

I am saving data to the description property (Notes), but EA as a default put it from LeftToRight.
When entering EA description box and clicking Shift+Ctrl it does move from and RightToLeft and saves it that way.
Does anybody know what character can be added\removed in the AddIn to do it automatically?



I am inserting new elements underneath a package.
Each time the new element is entered in the first position.
Then I can move them in EA up or down to change their order.

1. Does anybody knows where EA holds the sequence number (in DB?) of the position for each moved element?
2. Is there a specific API that I can use to change the sequence from AddIn?


General Board / API for closing or opening a package
« on: January 10, 2017, 08:55:25 pm »

Does anybody knows if there is an API that closes a specified package on the model browser tree
and API that opens a specified package on the model browser tree?



The problem:
I am creating a report and I need to have 2 values (each from a different query) presented in one fragment

Is it possible to put 2 queries together in one fragment? If yes, can someone give a simple example what the correct way that it should be done because currently I am only able to put one.

General Board / Location of element description in DB
« on: November 16, 2016, 04:55:59 pm »

Does anybody knows where the description part of the element exists on DB?


I am trying to add a fragment with SQL query I have created to a template I have also created.

In order to to that I followed the following user guide instructions:

or to be more specific:

In the Content panel, at the appropriate point within one of these sections, right-click and select the Insert Template context menu option.
The Select Template dialog displays.

When clicking right click, I am only getting the System Templates and not the one I have created.

Does anybody know how I can see the custom ones?


General Board / Generating a report for a specific diagram
« on: November 04, 2016, 08:08:20 am »
I am trying to generate a report through customize template I have created.
I want to run it on a specific diagram has a unique name (and only on that diagram)

I have notices that you can generate report only to a package, and then it drills down to the diagrams below.

Is there a way to activate a filter (by parameter, or built in mechanism) to find my desired diagram underneath the package?

General Board / New border element questions
« on: September 12, 2016, 12:24:29 am »
I have created a new border element questions as follows:

EA.DiagramObject diagBorderElement = (EA.DiagramObject)diagram.DiagramObjects.AddNew("l=" + leftPos + ";r=" + rightPos + ";t=" + topPos + ";b=" + bottomPos + ";", "");

It was created fine on the diagram but I have 2 questions about it:
1. How can I change the borderElement color (to Red) for example

2. I have noticed that this element creation, the partitions (swimlanes) in the diagram disappear.
Does anybody know how to create the new element without harming those swimlanes?

General Board / Getting a value from EA.Attribute
« on: August 01, 2016, 05:55:17 am »
This is probably pretty simple but I can get the value from EA.Attribute.

I am getting all the attributes in the element (using element.AttributeEx)
Then running on all the attribute I am getting, I am seeing that I am getting the attribute name.

But I cant get the attribute value,
I tries to get a collection EA.Attribute attribute.TaggedValuesEx\TaggedValues and attribute.Notes
None of these is working even though I have values for the attribute in the Model.

Does anybody knows the correct API for this matter?

General Board / Using web service in EA
« on: July 14, 2016, 03:51:17 am »
I have created a webservice, tested it (in visual studio) and saw that it is working properly.
I am now trying to make it work from AddIn.
I have added the ServiceReference Service.wsmx file to my references.

I have then added the using declaration:
using MyAddIn.MyServiceReference;

as needed for the webservice to be recognize.
Now I compiled and opened EA, EA loaded my AddIn and everything was OK.

When I added the line:
private MyServiceSoapClient client = new MyServiceSoapClient(); (which compiles ok)
But when opening EA and looking in the Manage AddIns, I am getting Error missing 0x80040154, and AddIn is not loaded.

As anyone encountered in such behavior, or know what is missing? because the error is not informative...


General Board / Updating Diagram.StyleEx attribute
« on: July 03, 2016, 01:19:55 am »

I am updating StyleEx variable with new data. (i.e. modifying its one of the ; separated variables, the MDGDgm one, with a new value) and updating the diagram with this new string:

currentDiagram.StyleEx = newStyleEx.

after that I am doing

I have noticed that the variable is not getting updated.
Is this a read only variable that can not be modified?
or there is another way to have the diagram updated with the newStyleEx value.


General Board / How to determine the profile of a diagram
« on: June 23, 2016, 05:20:45 am »

Does anybody know how to determine either by API or field in table (t_diagram was my thought but its not there).
the profile that contain the diagram type.

I have a diagram type that is called basic flow that extends Activity diagram, this definition resides in profile named 'ABC'.
When I have the type of diagram (ABC) I would like to know the profile.

Another note, the profile are imported to the model using the MDG technology.
