General Board / Re: Relationhip matrix order with custom SQL
« Last post by Paolo F Cantoni on Today at 10:24:54 am »
I would like to propose an matrix improvement. (Irrespective of SQL)

I'd like to see a Don't Sort option, i.e., just list in the order the elements appear in the browser, with child elements indented.
 would also like to see a Frequency Sort option, i.e. the more relationships, the higher up and further to the left for an element. I have found this very useful in another tool.


Thanks,

Then, Håkan,
You'd better put in a feature request using one of the links at the bottom of the page.  If you do so, there is a theoretical possibility that your request may reach planet Sparx and be considered.  Without it, there is a non-zero, but a vanishingly small, possibility it might be considered.

HTH,
Paolo

Use Visio or whatever drawing program and embed an image.

I've noticed the same thing with the normal style, it doesn't work.
We now use our own style "Normal2" instead of "Normal"
But doesn't that mean you have to manually set the Normal2 style in each and every template you create?

There again, it looks like EA doesn't use the Table Text Normal (or heading) style in tables unless you set that manually.

I'm thinking it might be that you need to update Normal in Normal.rtf in order for it to work, but I haven't tested that.
Not an option for me anyway since I'm not one single modeller working on one single computer always and forever.

General Board / Re: Class instances don't show attributes
« Last post by adama on Today at 07:22:14 am »
Same question in 2019, except the UI has changed and it does not work like a charm. Right-click->Features->Set Run State.
Tried:
1. Setting some values for variables inherited from class. Tried matching and not matching. Does not create attribute on object.
2. Tried creating a new variable in Set Run State. Problems are:
a) does not show up as attribute on object.
b) cannot be deleted.

General Board / Re: Archimate 3.1 support
« Last post by Sunshine on Today at 07:17:10 am »
Archimate V3.1 adds a value chain element and direction of association.
So whilst waiting for Sparx Systems to release the updated version you could continue using ArchiMate V3 and add to your model a value chain stereotype that extends Activity and has the following shape script.

Code: [Select]
//Archimate Value Chain
shape main
{

layouttype="border";
defsize(75,70);
startpath();
moveto(80,0);
lineto(100,50);
lineto(80,100);
lineto(0,100);
lineto(20,50);
lineto(0,0);
lineto(80,0);
endpath();
fillandstrokepath();

addsubshape("padding","w");
addsubshape("label","center");
addsubshape("padding","e");

shape padding
{
preferredwidth=20;
}

shape label
{
h_align="center";
v_align="center";
print("#name#");
}
}

You could draw it using whiteboard diagram with rectangles, boundary elements with dotted lines, text elements and dashed lines.

General Board / Print diagram in Specification Manager view
« Last post by HLidstrom on Today at 06:15:16 am »
I have a diagram open. I select Print using any of the ways available to do so.
The diagram graphics are printed. Fine!

Now I right-click on the diagram canvas and pick Open diagram in Specification Manager, and I print again.
The diagram graphics are still printed. Not fine!
I want the Specification Manager text that I see on screen!

It must be possible, but I have searched in vain in the user guide and the Forum.

How do I do it?
Why isn't this a trivial task?

Thanks, Håkan

General Board / Templates and report specifications
« Last post by Modesto Vega on Today at 05:50:08 am »
We have a set of templates as part of an enterprise/corporate architecture repository. They work fine but would like to make a number of enhancements.

In a nutshell, we have a repository with multiple pages per domain/area/project and we have strategically placed Report Specification elements on diagrams to be able to generate the relevant documentation. All of this works fine but will like to try to achieve the following and don't seem to get it working:
  • Have the template version as a constant to be displayed in the Cover Page. For this I am using a Project Variable, but it seems to be constant across all templates in the repository. If I change it in one Report Specification, it changes in all Report Specification elements using the same Template
  • Pass the ReportName, with the ReportName changing from package to package -  e.g., Customer Registration Class Model, Sales Class Model, Order Fulfilment Class Model, and so on - to also be displayed in the Cover Page. Again I tried to use Project Variable but it is also constant
  • Pass the Package Version to be displayed in the Cover Page, this is easy to do with through the Package in the template editor but displaying it in the cover page looks impossible (or nearly)

EA is pretty particular when it comes to MySQL driver and ODBC settings.

Check the page in the manual and check both version and each of the mandatory settings.
