Generate Activity Diagram

When you create a scenario on an element, and then generate an Activity diagram from the scenario, an Activity is generated as a child of the selected element to act as a container for the diagram.

  • Each scenario step is modeled as an Activity
  • The values of the Uses, Results and State columns for each step are added as memo Tagged Values of the corresponding Activity

Access On a diagram or in the Project Browser, right-click on element and select:

Properties > Scenarios > Structured Specification: | Activity or

Properties Page | Scenarios > Structured Specification: | Activity
