General Board / Re: Master Document or Template Fragment?
« on: May 18, 2015, 10:26:20 am »
Master documents are used to create full documents. Template are used to create sections of the document. Fragments can be used to create parts of a template. So its kind of composition like this
Master Doc - contains one or more model document. Used to create docs with different formatted sections
      Model Doc - uses a templates. Used to create a document in a consistent format.
            Fragments used by templates to create. Used to extend the capability of a template. i.e. use SQL to query the whole repository rather than just a package.

So if you want to create a full document with sections formated in different ways then use master documents. On the other hand if you want to create just a table of elements from a package then just use a template.

Hope that helps :)

General Board / Re: Table Detail in Diagram
« on: May 15, 2015, 04:35:31 am »
Yes. Right click on background of diagram and from context menu select properties. In the diagram properties dialog select the elements tab. Uncheck the attributes and operations. Click ok.
This should stop details of the element being displayed such as attributes (columns in db speak) and operations (methods/functions)

General Board / Re: Wire Framing Webpage - Name
« on: May 12, 2015, 06:29:08 am »
Dermot, the problem I was having was that when there were a number of web pages on a diagram using the stereotype wireframewebsite I couldn't distinguish them apart as the name of the element isn't shown on the diagram. i.e. they all look the same with out a name  :(

I guess the answer is no then.
Found a work around by repeating the name in the tab field displayed. Not ideal.

General Board / Wire Framing Webpage - Name
« on: May 08, 2015, 08:22:04 am »
Started using the Wire Framing> Webpage toolbox and found I can't seem to display name of element on a diagram so unable to distinguish the webpages. Was hoping to do a navigation map with detailed webpage layout under each element.

Question: Is there any way to show the element name on a diagram using these webpages (stereotype WireframeWebsite) so I can distinguish the different webpages from each other?

General Board / Re: Unrecognized database format
« on: May 10, 2015, 09:39:59 am »
Glad to hear it worked ok.
The cause could be something to do with where your storage system is located for the eap file. For instance I've known in the past people have problems running eap files on a network storage or shared file locations. Usually some kind of network issue combined with how MS Access database works. If problems persist consider alternative storage location.
I usually work with EAP files on my c: drive then copy/ backup. Found Skydrive good for doing this automatically.

Suggest following steps
a) make copy if you don't have backup
b) Run the EAP repair tool. In V12 the menu is Project>Data Management>Manage .EAP File > Repair .EAP File

c) if that works then do a project integrity check hot key Shift+F9

Should be okay after that.

If not resort to back up file

If no backup file then bad luck  :(

I give up you still haven't explained what you think the built in doc generator can't do.
Sorry can't help you.

Good luck.
Personally I find the built in document generator for Sparx EA good enough to generate all my docs. Especially since document fragments were introduced in the more recent versions.
Interested in what you think it can't do. Please do share.
Roll back.
I might only need to custom the generation using the document generator and scripting.
Does some one have an exemple of script at hand-lenght and is willing to share?

Regards
M.
I don't understand that answer could you elaborate?

Looks like a good tool to use but unfortunately it seems like the announcement was a bit premature. Some technical difficulties with the website.

General Board / Re: Create Model Template MDG
« on: May 04, 2015, 01:00:09 pm »
For Sparx EA to see your technology file, you'll need to copy the MDG technology file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Sparx Systems\EA\MDGTechnologies
or
point Sparx EA to the place you have created your technology file
For V12
Menu Extensions>MDG Technologies...
In MDG Dialog click on advanced button at bottom left
Add path to the folder where you created the MDG technology file.
Hope that helps

This used to be a problem in an early version of Sparx but thought it had been fixed years ago.
Another thing to check is the element section make sure that after your fields you don't have a newline between the last field and the closing element tag as that used to cause the problem you are seeing.

Yes it is possible. Just add Name and Description on first line.

i.e. adding to your example
Code: [Select]
package >
{Pkg.Name}
package element >< package element
element >
Name             Description
{Element.Name}      {Element.Notes}
child elements >
< child elements
< element
child packages >
< child packages
< package

It would also help if you added a table
