Activity Diagram - Activity Parameter Node
« on: December 23, 2014, 04:46:51 pm »

I want to ask how to properly handle activity parameters with inout direction. In my understanding an activity can have a parameter with an inout direction. To depict the oject flow the activity can have two activity parameter nodes. One for the Input flow and one for the Output flow.

Inside the properties I cannot add a new parameter with the same name. It is no problem to add a new parameter node with the same name. Then I get the diagram I intended to have. But the activity added a new parameter for the new parameter node.

Does EA offer the pin notation with arrow?

The SysML profile offers that. There it is realized with a shape script that check a tagged value direction for a Port and draws the arrow accordingly. You can mimic that yourself for other purposes.
