EA V15 RC 1505 - Can't edit shapescript editor
« on: June 30, 2019, 09:25:59 am »
Has anyone tried access the shape script editor in V15 RC 1505. I've got a custom MDG where I created some some stereotypes with shapescripts stored in the stereotype's initial value of _image attribute. In previous versions of Sparx EA there used to be a ellipse button (...) which could be clicked and the shapescript editor would pop up. Can't see it any more anywhere thus can't seem to edit shape scripts any more.
Am I missing something?
Happy to help
:)

Have you tried using the profile helper?
That's how I edit my shapescripts.

I ever wondered why there must be helpers in a tool. Isn't a tool supposed to do what I want straight away? Or does someone feel better with "Pardon, can I help you get around that clumsy tool you are currently using"? (Not to mention Clippy here)

Profile Helper aye? Haven't used that before. I've just attempted to search for that and get a blank screen. Looks like the search isn't working.
Any hints where to find it?

Find your stereotype element in a diagram, right-click > Edit with Profile Helper

And the ellipsis button is still in the Features window: Find attribute in Project Browser, right-click > Properties > All Features

I guess about the issue Sunshine wrote:

- double-click an attribute  _image in a diagram or press F9 after selecting the attribute in a diagram (click a Class in a diagram, then click an attribute in the Class)
-> EA opens modal properties dialog - there is no '...' button at the Initial value cell

One of the solution is:
- select the Stereotyope class and press F9
-> EA opens the Feaures dockable window - there is '...' button in the list and you can open the editor

HTH,

Thanks guys I can confirm two suggestions worked for me.
  • Find your stereotype element in a diagram, right-click > Edit with Profile Helper.
  • Ellipsis button is still in the Features window: Find attribute in Project Browser, right-click > Properties > All Features. Or select the Stereotyope class in diagram and press F9
Didn't know there was so many different ways to access the shape script editor.
