UML Profile: Self-tagging
« on: October 01, 2006, 01:29:41 am »
Hello

Alright so this term might sound weird coz I just made it up. What I mean by self tagging is the ability to create a stereotype in a UML Profile and have one of its tag point to itself using a tag connector. Theortically, this should create a tag property for the element which displays all elements of the same stereotype in the model.

Take a look at this:



This is what I have on hand. However, when I export/improt the profile and I drop one element of such stereotype, the tag selector for the 'RelatedRules' tag property displays no elements even though there are other elements in the same diagram with the same element stereotype.

Any pointers?

UPDATE:

I found a way around it. The solution was to extend the stereotype off a Class rather than a Requirement element.

But I still have one more question to go:

How can I make it so that the tagging link allows me to pick more than one element. When I click the little "..." button in the Tagged Values window, it displays the 'Set Element Classifier' dialog which only allows single selection.
Thanks
