Thanks a lot!

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Hide/Show Connectors

Hi,

the Current Connector toolbar has 'Show and Hide Toolbar (Strg + Umschalt + I)'. The Icon with glasses.

Kind regards,

Hi,

have a look in Geerts excellent open source software Navigator on GITHub.

There are examples. You'll find classes which very well encapsulate the task.

Regards,

Hi,

Use Fragment Template with e.g. SQL. Use Script instead of SQL if the BOM is more complicated or you are more familiar with Scripts.

There are also other ways like generating Documentation from a Model Search, defining Element Filters.

You may tag a BOM element by a tagged value, stereotype, or add features by tagged values or by a profile/MDG.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hi Jan,

you can use Custom Reference. See: http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/modeling_tools/crossreferences.html.

With CTRL+J (Customer Reference) on the Class,.. you can choose the diagram to open. The location of the diagram is arbitrary. You may also later move it to another location.

EA stores the reference in 't_xref'. So you are also able to handle this by an AddIn or a Script.

Kind regards,

Helmut

Hello Geert,

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

Thanks!

Kind regards,

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
