Hi Guillaume,

regarding Activity name in Call Behavior Action:
- Start, Preferences, Preferences, Objects, Show invoked Activity name

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Guillaume,

Thanks for the explanation. I got the picture.

I'll look how to implement it in hoTools. Achieving synchronization should be an easy task. Probably you see it in next hoTools release.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Guillaume,

I see the multiplicity of the Class/Block, if set, on my Block and my Class diagram (EA13).

Set via, Advance, Multiplicity,

Have I something missed?

Hi,

it would also be a good idea to visualize information for a trigger like:
- Type (e.g. Call)
- Specification (Operation name)

This of course according to the different trigger types.

Then you can drag the trigger on the diagram to see details. Now there is only the workaround with the Note field.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Guillaume,

EA 13 does so.

You may create a composition with Blocks and
- Role name
- Multiplicity
on the composition association.

When you drag the Block onto the IBD (Internal Block Diagram) as Property (Property created by EA during Drap and Drop), EA generates the property name from Role name and multiplicity of the composition.

Changing the Property name has no effect on Role/Multiplicity. Because of the one direction synchronization, you have to be careful.

Kind regards,

Helmut

There is a helpful book from qwerty - Inside EA - which may help you by this and related tasks.

Hi,

as far as I know there is no special command/menu entry for putting a bunch of Hyperlinks for all related Diagrams.

You may write a Script, an Add-In, use EA Search or use an existing Addi-In like EA Navigator or hoTools. You may also have a look in the community.

Kind regards,

Hi Guillaume,

hoTools now supports Port synchronization for Properties/Parts. EA does most of the work. For details see:

Hi Guillaume,

thanks for your suggestion and interest.

As far as I've tested it, EA 13 creates Ports for Parts when you create them by dragging Blocks onto the IBD.

It's no big deal to create/synchronize ports according to a reference like the block. I see two different possibilities doing this: Just synchronizing block to its parts or more general generate ports from an arbitrary classifier.

I'll look into it and come back. You can also drop me a mail with details or add a feature request on GitHub.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Guillaume,

you may find hoTools and this Community Resource http://community.sparxsystems.com/community-resources/1040-show-or-hide-ports-activity-parameters-or-action-pins helpful.

Kind regards,

Hi,

you may also use hoTools. It supports conveyed items by:
- Buttons in its GUI (select flow or item and click)
  https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/ConveyedItems
- SQL Scripts with Macros like #ConveyedItemIDS# (almost like an ordinary EA SQL Search, but a lot of enhancements)
 https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/EaSqlMacros

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hello,

often there is an issue with the registration of the Add-In DLL.

You may have a look at:
http://community.sparxsystems.com/community-resources/772-ea-installation-inspector

It's a nice tool to find registration issues with EA Add-Ins. It also contains a description of possible causes.

Kind regard,

Helmut

Hi,

as far as I know, there is no easy one-click way or so to do it.

You can drag the block(s) on the IBD with holding Ctrl key. Then EA asks you what to 'Drop as' (Property,..) and how to handle Structural Elements. In my opinion, this works only partly as I would assume.

In an existing IBD, I don't know a way to add existing ports to properties quickly.

Consider filing a bug report for dragging multiple Blocks onto IBD. 

For that reason, I added some port related features to the free hoTools. Currently, not all of these functions work for SysML properties. I may change this with the next release.

Regards,

Helmut

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Model Search Group
« on: January 04, 2017, 02:01:41 am »
Hi,

if you insert a script in the Model Search Group you can call the Script from Find in Project (CTRL+F) by:
- Right click on found item
- Scripts, Select one of the scripts

It gives you easy access to Scripts which run on found items.

Regards,

Helmut
