Stereotyped Messages in Sequence Diagrams
« on: April 27, 2003, 04:42:28 pm »
Hi there,

Is there a way of creating stereotyped messages in sequence diagrams?  For instance if object A sends a create message to object B, is there a way I can sterotype the message to read '<< create >>'?  I know I can enter '<< create >>' as the message title, but I'd prefer a formal stereotype if available.

Hi Darryl

You might be interested in a new feature in EA which allows you to set the object runtime state for a class instance.  

There's more information on this in the EA helpfile for build 609 under Using UML | UML Elements | Basic Elements | Object | Object State. Either download the new version of EA or access the online helpfile at

Not sure if this is what you mean, but it might help.
