General Board / Re: Bitmaps in Diagrams

Geoff,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Your suggestion provides exactly the kind of functionality I'd like to see.

Obviously it's a bit fiddly, dealing with emf conversions and then setting up stereotypes for every screen. In addition the technical concerns are a bit of a worry especially as I will be dealing with between 10 and 100 screens for each system I work on. Image sizes could be a real concern.

I'll look forward to the future implementation of this. If I can be of any help with requirements, testing, etc. for this issue, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,

Terry

General Board / Bitmaps in Diagrams
« on: January 18, 2002, 02:39:44 am »
Some of the specifications I produce require the need for detailed user interface mock-ups usually created in HTML or sometimes PowerPoint, Paint Shop Pro or hand scribbles.

Is there any possibility of extending EA to provide the ability to incorporate these interface mock-ups as bitmap objects within diagrams?

I would like to be able to set properties as with other diagram objects. Specifically for bitmaps, I would like to be able to re-size the object and have the image stretch/shrink to fit the new size.

Certainly for web applications, it is now common for the user interface to form a major part of the stakeholder's requirements.

Currently I am creating an RTF file and cutting and pasting the images into the appropriate slots. This can take ages. The ability to produce reports which incorporate the images would be a major productivity boost. We are always seeking to automate our artefact production.

Regards,

Terry
