ArchiMate Risk Driver extends class

I'd no longer recommend that, and it's no longer in our help.
https://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/14.0/modeling_tools/non-uml_metatypes.html

I haven't seen a scenario where it caused anything good to happen in a while. (But I have seen it cause confusion about which metaclass extension to use etc)

To do the shapescript tho' you enter the wiggity world of the third worst MDG shapescripting :-)

You can probably avoid it if you call drawparentshape() in your script. Then you just draw what you want over the top (or outside the 0,0,100,100 rect of the original.)

This is what I'd like to be able to do. I haven't found any instructions on how to modify / extend the Archimate 3 MDG Technology. I'd like to be able to draw annotation markers on Archimate shapes (simple squares or circles) and fill them with simple colours and / or  a few alphanum characters based on a the value of a tagged value settable for that object.

For example

To specialise the ArchiMate 3 Driver to and ArchiMate Risk Driver you have the following relationships in your MDG
  • ArchiMate Risk Driver extends class
  • ArchiMate Risk Driver generalises ArchiMate3::ArchiMate_Driver

To do the shapescript tho' you enter the wiggity world of the third worst MDG shapescripting :-)

Hi all,

Now targets of the smart placement must be the 'same level' - i.e. if an element is direct on the diagram and another is child element (on other element), there is no blue line between them.

In similar case, in an Activity diagram if an object is on a Partition (Lane) and another object is on different Partition, there is no blue line between them.

Maybe this is why you can not see the line in some cases.


I can't agree more about support for the spacing and selecting mutliple objects.

HTH,

Hi,

I have created Stereotypes extending ArchiMate Stereotype. I've added tagged value to my Stereotypes. I've created Shape Script that based on the value of those tagged values will render the Stereotype differently. That works fine for the Stereotype itself. But when I create Instances of those Stereotypes, the tagged value is there and I can set it but the Shape Script is not executed.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!

I'm sure someone has done this before, but I'm sadly not gifted at coding or scripting.

"By the way ArchiMate doesn't have the concept of instances"

Archimate does have the concept of instances, through the Specialisation relationship. Use it all the time. Different thinking to UML Instantiated Objects, however. :-)

Just something to add to the discussion: the Diagram Legend in previous versions of EA (< 14) was a diagram element, which means that only was visible in a diagram but not in the project browser. But since version 14, diagram legend nows appears in the project browser (with empty name), so this type of element has a weird behavior and it is possible that Sparx has forgotten to include in the contextual menu to list the option to find in project browser. Just try Alt + G command to find it.

General Board / Message Numbering on Sequence Diagram
« Last post by MikeOL on Today at 04:03:37 am »
On a Sequence Diagram how can you format the Message sequence number to be an integer (1, 2, 3, ) rather then the default decimal (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, )?

I know I can show inherited (sub-)properties of one of the property within an internal block diagram, but is it possible to show the inherited relations between them?

I have existing ibd-s of the block itself, with connector relations, but the connectors do not appear when adding this block as a property to another block.

If I try to re-add the connectors, they seem to be added as relations to the instances defined by the top-level block, which is probably not what I want.

Any pointers?
