Automation Interface Examples: Custom View

This Custom View application provides a practical example of creating an addin that displays in the diagram view of EA. This example uses Visual Basic 6.0 to create an Automation Interface addin that can retrieve/update data in an EA repository.


The Add-In sets up the following graph reports in the diagram view of EA;

  1. A graph of Test cases relative in the currently selected tree.
  2. A graph of Maintenance Issues in the currently selected tree.

For users simply interested in using this Add-In in its current form - a downloadable setup file is available under Download. See Examples for a set of reports produced by the Add-In.

A reasonable knowledge of Visual Basic is assumed if modifications are to be made. This is intended to provide a starting point for users to configure their own Custom View Addins.

For information on setting the CustomView see in EA-Help: Automation and Scripting | Add_ins | Custom Views
