General Board / Re: Link an User Interface element to Table/Column
« on: February 15, 2018, 09:11:05 am »
hmmm,  ... I'm somewhat embarrassed but have to ask for help again. Why the "Link to Element Feature" option is not on the menu when I right-click on the end of connector/relationship? It was there when I tried initially but not now! Is there anything to do with the new Diagram or connectors properties?

It won't be available for all connector types. For example, I wouldn't expect to see it for generalization, state transition, control flow, note link, ...

Hi Gus

Its not possible to show the attributes compartment in diagram if you replaced it with an image.
Without image , you use AddCompartmentText to make attributes visible in shape scripts.


No, you can't show attribute information using AppendCompartmentText in a shape script. It's used in either a shape RelatedElement which is called once for each connector attached to the element, or shape ChildElement which is called once for each owned element. There is no shape that iterates the owned attributes.

Of course you can manually add a tagged value to any element in your model without using stereotypes or profiles or MDG Technologies. And if you want to add the same tagged value to every element in your model, you can write a script to do that. You might need to let it run overnight.

New for EA 14, which isn't available yet.

To create a Generalization Set, right-click one of the Generalizations and select "Advanced | Generalization Set | New..."

(left + right)/2  ,  (top + bottom)/2

Ah yes, ArchiMate 3 quicklinks will only appear on ArchiMate 3 diagrams. Nothing to be done in EA13, I'm afraid.

Now Archimate2::Business is something you can try to extend. I don't know if it works fully for diagrams like it does for elements.

Not yet (EA 13)

but this is not exactly what I want.

Can you be more specific please. Why isn't your extended class diagram exactly what you want? Why can't you just use an ArchiMate diagram?

Look in the DiagramLinks collection for the Diagram.

Do you mean your tag name is 'MyTag' and it is defined in the profile 'Domain', or is it really called 'Domain::MyTag'? Because if it's the latter, EA will assume it's the former and things won't work. Not a good idea to put '::' in a tag name.

I guess you could then apply (visual only) markers at or near the dangling ends for human readers.

Or if you name the connector, the name will appear at each dangling end.

Uml Process / Re: Action pins and instances of artifacts
« on: November 28, 2017, 08:47:55 am »
Why does UML prohibit this connection? (Or, why does EA claim that it does?)

It sounds like EA's validation code saying "it's an artifact" and using the artifact rules rather than "it's an instance" and using the instance rules. Probably worth a bug report.

Uml Process / Re: SysML: Convert SysML 1.4 block to SysML 1.3 block
« on: November 23, 2017, 09:14:45 am »
Originally I wanted to downgrade the elements to SysML 1.4 but I think the upgrade to SysML 1.4 is also a acceptable. Hopefully that there are no "hidden features"  ;)

Not much needs migrating from SysML 1.3 to 1.4. Unit and QuantityKind are now unstereotyped objects, defined by their classifier. Also View has changed from stereotyped Package to stereotyped Class, and Conform is now a stereotyped Generalization. There may also be one or two tagged values that changed names, I don't remember.

If your BPMN technology is enabled and the shapes still aren't drawing correctly, go to ribbon|Manage|Reference Data|UML Types and find and delete any stereotypes that begin BPMN2.0:: - in fact, you should delete ANY stereotype in that table with '::' in its name.
