Enterprise Architect enables custom windows to be inserted as a Diagram Tab within the Diagram View that appears at the center of the Enterprise Architect frame.
Creating a custom view helps you to easily display a custom interface within Enterprise Architect, alongside other diagrams and built-in views for quick and easy access.
Uses for this facility include:
- Reports and graphs showing summary data of the model
- Alternative views of a diagram
- Alternative views of the model
- Views of external data related to model data
- Documentation tools
Bear in mind that the 'Open Diagrams in Single Window' option in the 'Application Look' dialog will swap diagrams in the Diagram View rather than open more diagram tabs.
