Bugs and Issues / Re: Problems with modal windows on two monitors.
« on: January 16, 2013, 05:43:19 am »
A window pops up in a not visible place of the screen. Once it is a modal window  the unique way to proceed is Ctrl+Alt+Del and close the EA.
Try to to use ALT+ENTER, then ENTER, then arrow keys to move the dialog and make it visible.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Missing name column in class operations detail

Hi Paul
Meanwhile I found the reason for the missing header column. The column headings are draggable. Apparently I removed the column by accident... I am not sure if this is mentioned in the user guide.
I guess this is a standard behaviour of this Windows control; yes, it can sometimes surprise. But such behaviour doesn't belong definitely to the EA user guide.

Anyway, thanks four your help and the hint regarding image posting (see below!)

Hi Paul
Perfectly right, yes. By the way, how did you post the image? I prepared one to illustrate the posting but could not find an attachment link.
I place the image file on a hosting and its URL into img-tag.
Code: [Select]

In EA10 in the class operation dialog the name column is missing. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Do you mean this dialog?

"Name" column is marked - I can see it.

Uml Process / Re: property as Operation in EA?
« on: January 28, 2013, 09:22:33 am »
EA placed the private variable declarations in the Attributes compartment, but it imported the public properties into the Operations compartment?
The scope (private, protected, public etc.) make no difference: variables are equivalent to attributes and properties - to operations.

These are setters and getters, but I have typically saved the operations compartment for methods that have behavior. Just wondering what others thought . . .
Both getter and setter can have a behaviour, so a property is rather an operation than an attribute. Using of a property seems like using of an attribute, but it's syntax sugar only.

Uml Process / Re: creating use cases
« on: January 09, 2013, 11:21:17 pm »
Yes, I have a section called EXCEPTIONS and another called ALTERNATE FLOWS, where can I enter them on your template?
Open the "Properties" dialog for an use case element. In the tree (on the left side) select "Scenarios", in the Scenario pane select "Structured Specification" (selected by default).

You can first insert text description for each step of the use case basic path ("sunny day scenario")  via copy-paste from your Word document.

Then you can select any step and add either an alternate path or an exeption path to.

You mean for each class i will have to do that? thats cumbersom if I have to generate 50 odd classes? :-[
For each c# file; you can tell EA to generate one c# file for more than one class (though this is some cumbersom too).

But you should write code for each class; a description for each class, each attribute/operation etc. That were more to do than copy/paste of some (few) #using lines ::)

The current C# code generation doesnt provide using statements, is there any way those statements can be generated with the code?

You can select the item for which the code is to be generated (e.g., a class element) in the project browser, Press F11 (or local menu / Generate code...). In the dialog appeared there is "Import(s) / Header(s)" input field. Type into all statements that you need.

Also the Field naming format is not current, is there any thing to apply C# 4 naming conventions?

The same dialog, button Advanced?

It's usually in .net that a delegate declaration is a part of a namespace and not of a class.

I use EA to generate a source code from the model. Is it possible to define a delegate out of a model class, as part of a package?


Simon, thank you!

There are three MDG add-ins for EA and MS Visual Studio integration:
  • VSIntegrate.exe - Visual Studio Integration (available under Downloads/MDG Add-ins/MDG Integration/Visual Studio);
  • VSBridge.exe - Visual Studio .NET MDG Link (available under Downloads/MDG Add-ins/MDG LINK/Visual Studio .NET);
  • VS_Link_Beta_2_45.exe - Visual Studio .NET MDG Link (available to download from here)
What is a difference between? Is there a matrix comparision of these add-ins available?

Thx  :)

I want to generate RTF documentation from Use Case model. The model contains some use case with structured scenarios. An activity diagram is generated (Use Case properties/Scenarios/Generate Diagram) from this scenario; such diagram is placed by EA under specially project node with Activity type within other activities represent structured scenario steps.

I use a template derived from the standard (use case scenario template). My problem is a following: the diagram generated by EA and placed under intern Activity node does not appears in the RTF document because activity elements are excluded by default (“Generate documentation dialog / Options) for this template. If I include activity elements into report, they appear as “use case” :( . If I move the diagram from its activity project node, this diagram appears in the document but will not be automatically updated by EA from scenario editor. I tried some filters for activity items but unsuccessful. :(

Can anyone give a tip? Thx
