General Board / HTML Report w/o stereotype in Project Browser
« on: May 01, 2012, 12:40:22 am »
When generatting an HTML report from an Archimate model,  the model element names are prefixed with very long archimate stereotype names in the Project Browser/Outliner.
Our HTML reports are meant to non-technical users who don't (need to) know what a stereotype is.

Is there any simple way to produce the HTML Report without any stereotype in the element name prefixe?



Bugs and Issues / Re: Hard delete (CTRL-DEL) => "Error writing XML f
« on: November 15, 2014, 05:19:35 am »
The blog post from the MS App Virtualization team refers to problems when loading applications.

In our case Sparx loads fine. The problem is these "Error Writing XML File" message boxes that we get when deleting elements or when exporting to XML.

It is not necessarily a problem with App virtualization.

Besides the fact that we are using the MS Application Virtualization Desktop Client, we have the same problem even in the simplest situation:
- Create a new local EAP project
- Disable all MDGs. Keep only Basic UML so that at least something can be created.
- Close Sparx and reload local EAP project
- Add a class and delete it from the model => Error Writing XML File

@Sparx moderator: Did the Sparx developers look in their code? This should be easy to find

Bugs and Issues / How to change UML Nodes into Archimate 2 Nodes?
« on: July 06, 2012, 12:55:14 am »
We can set the stereotype of a UML Node to Archimate1 "Archimate_Node" but this is not what we want since Archimate 1 is legacy.

What we want is to set the UML Node stereotype to the Archimate2 "Archimate_Node".
But it does not work. The Archimate 2 profile does not appear in the drop-down list.
We could not find a way to apply Archimate2 profile to a UML Node.

Does anybody know?



Bugs and Issues / Re: EA 8.0.862 trims notes

I have the exact same problem with 8.0.863 on XP with SQL Server 2008.

I would like my Shape Scripts to print text in 1 among 3 different languages (English/Dutch/French) depending on the value of a global variable e.g. "Language". Note that a diagram stereotype is not global variable, it is particular to that diagram only.

Is there no other way than to write an add-in just to return a single global character "E/D/F"? :-/


For each diagram type that we create in an MDG, how can we define a custom icon that shows in the project browser?

In other words, how can we define new diagram icons than do not belong to the built-in diagram types?


Does anyone know where we can we find the shape scripts (or equivalent) used in the Archimate 2.0 profile, and especially fo the drawing of these little Archimate icons.
This is to create our own profile for Enterprise Architecture that would look like Archimate but that would have more semantics and meaningful verbs in the traceability pane.
Could be then shared if someone is interested.

Thanks. Indeed I tried and it works for everything except packages/folders.

Does anybody know how to change the folder/package icon in the project browser depending on the folder stereotype?

Thank you Geert.

Not sure that would work. In the Sparx repository data model, the Package does not seem to be an Object (No Object ID as secondery key in t_package).

It probably needs to be done by code.



In the Sparx UI, when trying to change the value of the "Type" property of a Packaging Component, the system says "this type cannot be changed to another".

Does anybody knows how to automatically change all Packaging Components into Components (wtithout loosing all the relationships)?

Any available code or little app to perform this?



Thank you. That works! :)

Let's describe the problem with a concrete example:

1) Create a profile "MyProfile" that includes
  -  Stereotype "Logical Application Component", that includes
     -  Tag "Lifecycle", that is of
        - Enumerated type: "Undefined, Envision, Development"
         and where the default value is "Envision"

2) In a model "My Model",
- Import the profile "My Profile"
- Apply the stereotype to a component called "My Application"
- Set the "Lifecycle" tag to the value "Production"

3) In the profile "My Profile",
- Update the enumerated type by adding the value "Retired"
  Now the Enumerated type looks like this:
      Enumerated type: "Envision, Development, Production, Retired"

4) Import/Reapply the profile "My Profile" in the model "My Model"

- "My Application" does not have the "Retired" value (Indeed, I can see this also in the table t_objectproperties)
- If, as an alternative, I reapply the stereotype to "My Application" then all tag values are set to the default value "Envision" (al my values are lost)

So, to summarize, are there any Sparx features, tools, scripts, snippets... that can be used to manage the lifecycle of UML profiles AND of the models that apply these profiles?



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Applying updates of a UML Profile
« on: December 19, 2011, 07:44:44 pm »

When we update a UML profile, is there any way to avoid the existing tag values to be lost?

Even when we simply add a tag value in our profile, the existing tag values (in our huge model) get lost when we re-apply the profile.
