General Board / dragging classes to logical diagram
« on: February 25, 2002, 10:38:56 am »
I'm running into behavior I don't remember seeing when I was evaluating EA. Maybe I'm missing something?

My situation is this: I have defined some classes in the Views tree (right-click a package, select "New Element"). Now I would like to add those classes to a Logical Diagram. So, I double-click on a diagram in the tree to open the diagram. Then I drag the class I want from the tree to the diagram in the main window.

What I am expecting is for the class to be represented on the diagram. What is happening instead is that EA is generating an object instance of the class and putting that on the diagram.

What do I have to do to get an already-defined class to appear, as a class, on a Logical-View diagram?

Can anyone offer any help?
Thanks!

General Board / VB Interfaces
« on: January 11, 2002, 10:03:18 am »
Hi, I'm trying out the evaulation edition.

I have version 3.1.0 build 440.

Trying to forward engineer VB code where a class or classes implement an interface, using a "realization" link. The code is not generated correctly. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if the tool just does not support this correctly.

* The interface class will have a private member variable for the class that is implementing the interface.
* The implementing classes get a private member variable for the Interface.
* The private functions needed to implement the interface are not included. If I include them in the class diagram, the name of the function in the interface class is changed.
* The implementing classes do not have the Implements <interface name> statement.

I really like this product otherwise, but if I can't get this working I'll have to go to something else because I want to be able to forward-engineer code.

thanks.
