Hello Geert,

could you please elaborate on the Stereotype feature - the hundreds of bogus stereotypes.

Thanks!

Kind regards,

Helmut

I agree!

Make a feature request.

Hi Guillaume,

sorry I was wrong.

You may change the multiplicity of a Part to see the multiplicity in the diagram. It works, at least in EA13.

Atomatically changes the Part multiplicity from the block multiplicity looks for me as a not too good idea.

Kind regards,

Hi,

there are cases when it is useful not to show all relationships between nodes on a diagram.

Usually, I say: A diagram should have a purpose - the story of the diagram. Then the diagram has to stick to this goal - show what's useful and hide what distracts the reader.

The thing is most readers unconsciously assume that a diagram shows all relations between nodes.  Therefore, if you deliberately hide relations you should annotate that.

I've seen and experienced the usefulness of completeness markers in diagrams to be always aware of the fact that not all relationships are shown.

Therefore I wrote a little Addin to show nodes by colors that relationships are missing (not complete). See: http://www.community.sparxsystems.com/community-resources/507-79set-completeness-marker-for-classes-in-diagrams

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Guillaume,

In my point of view, you should submit a feature request.  It's somehow of an unexpected behavior.

Kind regards,

Hi Peter,

thanks for your elaborate explanation.

I agree, different Views in Browser would be a good idea. Tools like Rhapsody have such features.

Kind regards,

Hi,

In the community, there is a great article about how to make ModelViews with SQL. With this powerful feature and the community article is well written, you can see the arbitrary information. He uses Diagrams as Example.

See: http://community.sparxsystems.com/community-resources/1023-fast-access-to-each-diagram-in-enterprise-architect.

If you can drop me an email, I send you my MDG with some minor improvement.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Peter,

I find it useful to edit Notes with Specification Manager for
- Packages
- Diagrams

Hi Guillaume,

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

Kind regards,

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,

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.

Kind Regards,

Helmut
