Hi,

I'm trying to apply auto updates on a SysML IBD diagram when running the Synchronize Structural Elements, where EA creates new parts according to the BDD definition.
The only broadcast event I catch is EA_OnPreNewElement. However I need the Element ID to update via the OnPostNewElement or OnPostNewDiagramObject event.

Any reason why I'm not getting these events?

General Board / Cannot import UML patterns on a MySQL DB
« on: January 31, 2018, 07:18:39 pm »
Hi,

I'm getting the following error when I try to import a UML pattern: "Failed to import Pattern '...'.  Pattern too large for database field."
I found a thread here matching this issue on MySQL EA projects: http://www.sparxsystems.com/forums/smf/index.php/topic,26367.msg206158/topicseen.html#msg206158

Unfortunately even removing the image does not sort the issue as the XML file remains to large (140 kB).

Is there a way round to resolve this with the current build?

Hi,

I have a very large EA project running on a centralised DB. I need to run EA 13's batch to create diagrams cache (images of each diagram are created in the DB).
Unfortunately EA eventually crashes after 5 mins.

Is there a way to run this batch update via an API call in an attempt to handle in a better manner the high volume of data to process?

General Board / Diagram simulation with prompts
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:33:29 am »
Hi,

I need to set up an example for a project that needs to generate result values based on the input value + rules on an activity (or state chart diagram).
I had a look at Sparx EA Example. I found that triggers & signals with attributes can be used to prompt users for inputs (e.g. in the Music Player > PlayList).
Oddly I cannot get this to work on a new State diagram.
I created a Trigger call Input1 with an associated signal Input1 that has a Name attribute.
In the statechart diagram, I created a transition to the first state with:
- effect = this.input1=this.Input1.Name
- Triggers = Input1 (Signal) -> an entry is visible in the list.

When running the interpreted simulation, EA doesn't stop nor prompt for anything. What seems to be missing?

Also, can I triggers on Activity Diagrams to prompt for values when running the simulation?

Thanks

Hi,

I have a project running a custom UML profile via an installed MDG where UML stereotyped elements are displayed with custom colours.
Is there a way in a script via EA API to retrieve the current default bgcolor value on a given stereotype?

Thanks

General Board / Package template - update existing elements
« on: January 05, 2018, 06:43:59 pm »
Package templates can be useful to alter the default colours for elements as illustrated here: http://www.umlchannel.com/en/enterprise-architect/item/211-mastering-archimate-alternate-colour-scheme-with-archimate-3.
It works for elements created after the Package Template has been defined.
Is there a way with EA or any available scripts out there to update existing elements default rendering?

Thanks

Hi,

I'd like to call a common function where the expected argument is the script ID (as per t_script.scriptid).
It doesn't seem to be possible to dynamically retrieve such information for the running script. Am I missing something or do we need a new Repository.GetCurrentScriptID method in the API?

Thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Diagram custom attribute order
« on: November 27, 2017, 07:48:54 pm »
Hi,

It would be useful to have a way to define a custom order of a class attributes that is specific to a diagram.
The order is currently specific to a class, however I have several diagrams on which I need to show attributes in a different order.

e.g.
Diagram A
Class1
====
attr1
attr2
attr3

Diagram B
Class1
====
attr1
attr3
attr2

General Board / UML communication diagrams and messages font
« on: November 24, 2017, 06:41:17 pm »
Hi,

A colleague has used UML communication diagrams and would like to increase the messages font size so it's more visible. I don't think this is possible ; any way round?

Thanks

Hi,

I like EA 13.5 new "navigation cells" to open a diagram as an alternative to hyperlinks.
Copying the diagram to the clipboard to use e.g. in Powerpoint has a glitch since the embedded images are rendered with a black background.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Scripts submenus
« on: October 10, 2017, 12:54:54 am »
Hi,

We use a number of package and diagram scripts for a project which we prefixed by type.
A right click on a package or diagram displays a big list which I'd like to reduce with an additional level

Is this supported in EA?

e.g.
Current list:
Type1_Script1
Type1_Script2
Type1_Script3
Type1_Script4
Type2_Script5
Type2_Script6
Type2_Script7
Type2_Script8
...

Needed list:
Type 1
Type 2

Select Type 1:
Script1
Script2
Script3
Script4

General Board / Settings location for the enabled MDGs and custom toolbar
« on: September 14, 2017, 12:29:31 am »
Hi,

I'm trying to identify when EA stores local custom data so a team can deploy a fully custom EA configuration throughout the team.
Perspectives and EA 13 ribbons are located in Sparx appdata folder.

I know some details are also located in the registry, however I'm trying to find the following:
- list of enabled/disabled MDG Technologies updated via CONFIGURE > Technology > Manage
- custom toolbars with added commands via START > Workspace > Preferences > Customize > Commands.

Thanks

Bugs and Issues / SysML prevents using UML use cases
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:08:59 pm »
Hi,

I use both SysML and UML on various EA projects.
Somehow I must have enabled an option in EA that I need to get rid of:
- in the toolbox view, the SysML Common is always visible (the common is collapsed)
- in a UML use case diagram, I always get the SysML Use Case toolbox!

Thanks
Guillaume

Hi,

It would be useful to display an element's title in a diagram vertically, or rotate an element by 90.
Being a possible future request, I wonder if this sounds feasible for Sparx in a future EA build.

Thanks

Suggestions and Requests / Intellisense in the DB Builder Queries
« on: June 14, 2017, 03:57:55 pm »
It would be very useful if the DB Builder could support intellisense on the current database when writing a query.
So if I use the Ctrl+Space keys, I could get suggestions on the table and column names based on the tables in the current DB project.

It works in the SQL Scratch pad in EA Model search for EA DB schema.
