Call from Enterprise Architect

Enterprise Architect can be set up to call an external application. You can pass parameters on the current position selected in the Project Browser to the application being called. This helps you to:

  • Add a command line for an application
  • Define parameters to pass to this application

The parameters required for running the AutInt executable are:

  • The Enterprise Architect file parameter $f and
  • The current PackageID $p

Hence the arguments should simply contain: $f,$p.

Once this has been set up, the application can be called from the main menu in Enterprise Architect using the 'Extensions | <YourApplication>' menu option.
