General Board / Enforce new elements to be in certain package?
« on: October 03, 2013, 12:18:55 am »
It is possible to enforce the creation of elements of a certain type in a certain package?

Background: in the project browser I created a package that only contains diagrams. Dependent on the kind of element (Class, Business Role, Business Service) I want them to have in a certain package. By default, when working with a diagram, a new element is created in the same package as the diagram you are working on.

Thank you Ken!

General Board / Element not to be in container in project browser
« on: October 04, 2013, 11:23:16 pm »
Is there a way to prevent that an element, which is on a diagram in a container, is shown in the project browser as being 'inside' that container element?

Reason 1 is: I simply don't want this ;-).

Reason 2 is: when the 'child' element is on two different diagrams in two different 'partent' elements, the project browser just records your latest change...

General Board / Hide stereotype in HTML export ToC

Is there a possibility to exclude or hide the stereotype of an element in the Tabel of Contents of the HTML export?

Well, still a question. Quote from your answer: "Only one element shape script will be used to render a diagram".

The question is: if there are more stereotypes linked to an element and all those stereotypes have a shape script linked, what's the rules for selecting the shape script?

@Simon: thank you for this answer. Same question as qwerty: where to find the example script?

General Board / Multiple stereotypes and apperance(s)
« on: September 20, 2013, 01:21:57 am »
To an element more than one stereotype can be assigned. A stereotype can be used to influence the apperance of an element on a diagram.

Is it possible to show the same element on different diagrams with a different appearance, based on one of the assigned stereotypes?

General Board / Are there public examples of HTML output?

Are there examples of HTML output that are publicly available? Reason: get ideas, see to which extent customization is possible.

@Stefan, Geert: Thanks. (I wished there was an easier way to guard the quality of a conceptual model...)

General Board / Prevent duplicate names
« on: September 25, 2013, 07:40:55 pm »
Is there a way to prevent the existence of the same names for the same kind of element? For example: names of classes must be unique; names of diagrams must be unique.

If this is not possible: is there a way to raise a warning?

Maybe the information here helps you with your BPMN question:

Uml Process / Re: Representing accounting consequences of activi

Let's get clear what you exactly want to model. Only the facts 'activity has debit impact' and 'activity has credit impact'? Or only the fact 'activity has debit/credit impact'? Or maybe more details?

(A solution could be to use a data object which would represent a journal entry. Another solution could be to use an intermediate throwing event of type 'Signal' that tells a debit/credit position originated. But... it looks like a work-around and depends on what you want to reach with your model.)

By the way: do you want to stay within the 'BPMN boundaries' or is everything OK that can be done within Sparx EA?

Are you looking for a parameter at an activity that indicates the debit/credit impact of it? If so: that isn't present in BPMN.

Or do you want to model activities like 'Make credit journal entry' and to record the relation between those activities and the related 'physical' activities?

Uml Process / Re: Best representation for unordered tasks?
« on: June 19, 2014, 12:11:41 am »
What I understand, is that both selecting the data set as well as indicating values for a number of options are mandatory.

In BPMN you can model this by starting with a gateway of type 'Parallel', have two outgoing sequence flows, one to 'Select data set' and the other to 'Set options'. Each of those activities will have an outgoing sequence flow to (the merging) gateway of type 'Parallel'.

Formally (conform BPMN specs), the process will wait at the second gateway until both activities have been finished.

Yes, I managed it. Two comments:

a. Setting the activityType to 'Sub-Process' is NOT correct if you refer to a global process or a global task. The referring activity is then namely a Call Activity, which is not a sub-process.

b. Imo the label 'isCalledActivity' (passive form) is wrong and should be 'isCallActivity' (active form). This is the label that is used in the online User Guide. I reported this to Sparx.
