Bugs and Issues / RTF Table header
« on: August 29, 2012, 02:29:27 am »

I've reviewed RTF help and associated RTF Generation whitepaper. I can create tables just fine with a nice header row - but if i insert a table into the Element -> Connector -> Target -> Element section the header row is repeated for each element. Is this a know bug ? Is there a work around ?



Bugs and Issues / Error on startup
« on: August 04, 2012, 12:50:33 am »

I have a user that gets the error message 'failed to create empty document' when ever they start Sparx. It then closes down.

Anyone come across this error ? Any suggestions on how to solve ?



Bugs and Issues / Baselining !
« on: March 27, 2012, 09:33:01 pm »
Hi Sparx,

Ill report this as a bug - as i appear to have a lot of time on my hands whilst Sparx - FORMATS - the xmi on the baseline i'm creating. I ALWAYS uncheck this when creating xmi exports myself as its so slow. Why does Sparx need to format XMI that ill never see - please think about removing this when creating a baseline in a future release....

Or have i missed something can i uncheck the option somehow when i'm creating a baseline ??



Bugs and Issues / BPMN1.1 to BPMN2.0 migration
« on: January 23, 2012, 10:47:32 pm »

Apologies for cross-posting, put this on the general board but got no response - so i'm assuming that these are bugs...can someone from Sparx comment please...

Hi All,

When you run the BPMN1.1 to v2 migration it looks like you are left with SubProcessType under the old 1.1 profile for Activities - why ?

Also the migrated tagged values now in the v2 profile against activities (or events, decisions etc) don't appear in compartments. If you create a BPMN v2 element from the v2 palette they do ?

I'm assuming there is something missing in the migration function - can Sparx look at this or suggest a workround ?



Uml Process / Dependancy between requirement and attributes
« on: November 19, 2011, 12:49:46 am »

Is there am easy way in UML to show a dependancy between one or more attributes of a class and say a requirement/use case ? I know i can use the "Link to Element Feature" capability, can you recommended any other approaches?



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / TaggedValueTypes
« on: August 15, 2015, 12:27:23 am »

In my MDG I have a section :-

   <TaggedValueType property="roleRef" description="" notes="Type=RefGUID;Stereotypes=Role;BaseStereotype=SOP;"/>

within the profile. This was added manually into the XML. However I'm now creating the profile "correctly" via Sparx profile helper...How to I model a TaggedValueType within Sparx via a Sparx profile what do I add to my profile diagram/package in Sparx ??


Is there a method to get the node path (dotted path) of an element via the Automation Interface ?

Appears that i can only have one label per shapescript. Is this true?

I want to display some text bottom left corner and top right corner of my element. I've tried defining two label blocks - second seems to be ignored.

Any way around this ? Should it be possible ?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / h_align of a label
« on: February 19, 2015, 01:44:24 am »

How can I align the text of a label to the left ?

shape label
setOrigin ("NE", 0,0);
println ("Some text");

h_align within a label block doesn't work. The issue I have is that I've already set h_align to center when I displayed the elements name.

Also it appears that i can only have one label per shapescript. Is this true. I want to display some text bottom left corner and top right corner of my element. I've tried two label blocks - first is ignored. I've tried setting the origin to SW, printing then setting it to NE and printing - all text is printed at NE (last call to setOrigin)...




Is it possible to schedule a script to run in Sparx. I want run a script on a nightly basis to QA specific diagrams. I have the VB script written (in Sparx). Just need it to run each night.

Alternatively is it possible to start Sparx with a command line that runs a script automatically. I can then schedule this in Windows...

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / AddIn on shapescript...
« on: December 12, 2014, 08:39:09 pm »

I'm trying to invoke an Addin from my shapescript. I've followed Geerts excellent example. I believe my add-in is registered ok. It should just return a test String - "Test". But I get nothing. I'm not sure if the code in my shapescript is correct, can someone validate:

println ("#ADDIN:RelationshipAddIn, GetRelationships, Application#");


- RelationshipAddIn is the name of my "Class", should it be the name of the assembly/project ? Which would be dbSparxRelationshipAddIn

- GetRelationships is the Public method in my Add In. It has this signature:

public String GetRelationships(EA.Repository repo, String guid, String[] args)
  return "Test";

Any thoughts, suggestions appreciated.



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Repository.Execute in VBA
« on: December 05, 2014, 02:21:42 am »

I've used Repository.Execute in C# without issue; I need to use it in a VBA code within an Excel sheet - i'm getting an 'object doesn't support this property or method' error. Is this a limitation of VBA - want recognize/allow the use of hidden methods ? Anyone come across this ?



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / CreateObject in vbscript
« on: November 06, 2014, 10:26:58 pm »

Is there a limitation on the use of CreateObject in a vbscript within Sparx to create an active x component ?

I'm using:

    Set objIE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

And get the error active x component can't be created ??



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Element.CompositeDiagram
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:28:54 am »

Since v10 we can use the Element -> New Diagram -> Select Composite Diagram menu option to select a composite from anywhere in the model.

However the API Element.CompositeDiagram only looks to set the first "child" diagram it finds as the composite - assuming that one is not already set.

I need to way via the automation interface to make a specific diagram the composite diagram (not always the first child found)....anyone know how to do this ??



Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Setting the "Context"
« on: October 29, 2014, 04:34:19 am »

I looking for a way that my users can set a "context" that can be used when they are modeling to automatically set the default value of a specific tagged value - depending on the context that has been set by the user.

If the user were to set their context to "As-Is" the default of the tagged value status (which I define in an mdg) would change to As-Is. My MDG defined a bunch of connectors that have this status tagged value.

If the user sets there context to target the tagged value status default value is set to "target".

This way I can tell if relationships that are added to my model are part of my current or target state - that's the plan anyway.

The only solution I can think of is to create two different mdg files - one for current state modeling and another for target - which have the default for the status tag set to As-Is or Target respectively.

My users then use settings mdg technology so select the appropriate technology - ie set their "context" this way...

Seems a bit messy to me - can anyone think of a better solution ?
