Bugs and Issues / Re: v14 Beta: Missing MDG
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:24:47 am »
I can confirm that 'Simple Model Views' technology is not included in version 14.0.

The functionality that it contained has been included in other technologies, which offer a substantially improved set of model patterns. It's worth having a look at the model wizard to see how it has been expanded.

As for what to do about it, I'm not sure what's best. I don't like any of the solutions I can think of at the moment.

Yes, many items have been moved from context menus into the ribbon.

General Board / Re: EA v14 Beta - how to re-use your old layouts

It didn't quite come in correctly, but it SURE beats setting them up from scratch!
Obviously, the developers believe that the problems with doing that are worse than recreating them.

Unfortunately, I don't think any amount of testing this technology would have prevented this issue. What happened was that a user changed the model configuration to add the requirement for that MDG Technology.

It shows as a popup. I'd recommend making the change then waiting 2 minutes without the model view open to see what happens.

Not really. They are all LR(k) grammars and differ only slightly.
That's hilarious. Is an apple only slightly different from an orange?

Starting off from a Java or C++ grammar would be harder and more work than starting from our "Simple Sample Language" grammar, which has as much in common as any C-like language.

Setting up  grammar from scratch is just stupid work ... EA wants the grammar itself to be of a certain flavor (BNF or EBNF, I don't know). But these are the tedious things users want to be saved from.
Which is why the  sample provided demonstrates the EA specific syntax without complicating it with all the complexities from parsing multiple versions and variants of a production language.

So instead of hiding them (it's no rocket science you need to protect) it could as well be placed on github.
Until I'm told otherwise, I consider them part of EA's source code.

Start with the "Simple Sample Language" grammar in the Code Samples directory in your install.

Grammars for built-in languages are not available.

There is a path in the registry.

I don't have it installed right now, but think you'll find it in HKLM/Software/Wow6432Node/Sparx Systems.

Yes, you need to create a technology.

This is how you define the import.

The Learn more link at the bottom tells you how you can combine it into an MDG Technology file.

Try the dropdown for child (or sibling when there are no children) topics.

I thought it was, but the only reference to it in the current version of the manual is for connector types. (Which also share type names with t_object)

On the Diagram Behavior preferences page there is an option for 'Auto Group Elements'. I believe that's what you're looking for.
