General Board / Re: How to change the "Notes" window background color?

Because there is no GUI for doing that. Maybe there's a file somewhere in EA's guts that can be altered. Or, maybe, there's some code in EA.exe that can be patched.

I can change it if I use a different Visual Theme, so why I cannot I do via. editing a Theme?

You would need to edit the MDG and introduce a new stereotype, say DFD_ProcessRect, and add a new shape script to create a rectangle shape. So theoretically it's possible, but needs quite a bit of background knowledge. Alternatively you could use something else rectangular to fit your needs (e.g. from the Whiteboard profile).

Bugs and Issues / FEAP broken by installing EA 14.0
« Last post by Colin Coates on May 21, 2018, 05:59:41 pm »
Hi all,

I installed EA 14 and started seeing ODBC issues with creating new FEAP (Firebird database Enterprise Architect Project) files, such as error messages on trying to create a new FEAP.

Even after downgrading to EA 13.5, the problems persist. I am seeing error messages like:
Code: [Select]
MICROSOFT OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers [-2147467259]
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager]
Data Source name not found and no default driver specified.

I tried copying OdbcFb.dll into the SparxSystems\EA folder inside program files, but this did not fix the problem.

Has anyone else noticed a similar problem and figured out how to solve it, please?

Yes, you are right. I need to change color of "Notes" dockable window.

Can I edit a theme to do it? or any other way?

No, I don't think you can do that.

Hi Dang,

The proper way should be to convert you "invocations" to Activities with the callProcessActivity tagged value set to the GUID of the business process you are calling.

For me it works setting the stereotype to Activity, because EA will try to resolve the stereotype to one of the know stereotypes in a profile or a local stereotype. In my setup "Activity" will only resolve to the BPMN 2.0 stereotype.

You should make sure you don't have any other versions of the BPMN MDG active. Also check the local/ad hoc stereotypes to make sure there's no "Activity" there.

Alternatively you could use the qualified "BPMN2.0::Activity" (or "BPMN 2.0::Activity"?) and set that to StereotypeEx.

Lastly you can also execute the "synchronize stereotype" in batch from a script. See https://github.com/GeertBellekens/Enterprise-Architect-VBScript-Library/blob/master/Framework/Tools/UML%20Profile/Synchronize%20Steretoypes.vbs

Geert

PS. EA v14 has changed the drag-n-drop behavior for BPMN Business Processes and Global tasks to create the correct type of Activity calling the Business Process or Task, almost eliminating the need for my Synchronize script.

Defining extended stereotypes and shapescripts is the optimal way to achieve this.  this is a a one-off effort  and can be packaged as a MDG Technology and distributed to the wider team.
Defining a MDG standardizes the modelling efforts and helps in establishing consistency.

Whilst there are other ways to achieve this (defining local stereotypes , UML Types)  I've done MDG definition for many clients and have found that to be quite useful in the longer run.

General Board / Our question
« Last post by nokiaemars on May 21, 2018, 02:07:03 pm »
Hello, I need your help here. We want to change the appearance of connectors and elements within our diagrams in ways not available in the 'Default Appearance' dialog. For instance, we would like to make an Information Flow a solid line rather than dashed and make a standard UML component element have rounded corners (like the Archimate::ApplicationComponent elements), among several other changes. I've tried using Shape Script to accomplish this, but it seems pretty heavy handed for these seemingly simple changes (plus our systems engineers don't know how to code their way out of a paper bag). Is there a way to accomplish these types of appearance changes?
Thanks for any responce.
