Hi,

on https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoAddinTemplate/wiki you find a running template for an Add-In in C#. This is a minimal Add-In with:

-  Gui in EA Add-In Window
-  Installation both as admin or as no admin install
-  Settings read from Settings.json
-  View Help, About, Settings
-  Reset to factory settings

With this template, you have a running starting point and you can add your own functionality. I developed it because every time I started writing an Add-In I ran into troubles. 

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

one way to export something is to write/use a search/query and:

- Export results to *.csv and then to Excel
- Use the free hoTools to directly export the query results to Excel
  (see: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/Export)

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

additionally to what q has said:

-  Use the features of your database like:
--   You can create a view and then simply query that view from EA
--   Stored procedures

Best regards,

Hi,

If you are using Visual Studio I've collected some advice at: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/addin#visual-studio

Kind regards,

Hi,

My knowledge about diagram styles in EA you find at: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/DiagramStyles.

Thomas Kilian also documented a lot of insides in his book Inside Enterprise Architect. E.g Chapter 9.11 Diagram StyleEx Property.

Best regards,

Hi,

You can also change Stereotypes and more by the Open Source 'hoTools' (Bulk change EA Elements). For more information see: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/BulkEaItemChange

Hi,

if I understood you right you want to simulate/send keyboard events in your Add-In code to EA. Maybe 'How to: Simulate Mouse and Keyboard Events in Code' https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/winforms/how-to-simulate-mouse-and-keyboard-events-in-code could help.

With this you can send keys to arbitrary applications, and I think to your own (EA). I haven't tried it yet but it should work.

Best regards,

Hi,

you can also:
- Build a search and export results to *.csv (I think some limitations with notes)
  (Standard EA feature)
- Use free hoTools which supports *.csv and Excel export for searches
  (https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/Export#sql-to-excel)

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi,

The free hoTools offers Auto Names and Counters. You specify your counters using the Settings.json file. If you have improvements in mind, let me know.

See:
https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/AutoNumber

Best regards,

Hi Guillaume,

you are right! An EA API would be better.

So far I'm not aware of any issues.

Sometimes it's convenient to have a search or a service on a key combination.

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

you find at https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/AddInWithoutAdmin an article about non admin install of EA Add-Ins.

There you find descriptions, code and links to relevant documents.

Hi,

hot keys according to the mentioned article are implemented in hoTools (https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools).

Per dialog you can assign a service or a search to a hot key (e.g. 'F1+Shift+Ctrl'). You find the description in https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/GlobalKeys.

hoTool is Open Software.

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

if you want to know solutions for even complex environments have a look on LemonTree from LieberLieber.

It's more than just compare two release and I know companies who successfully use LemonTree for version control.
