General Board / Binary association name for OCL
« on: January 28, 2004, 12:39:48 pm »
Hi,

Is there a way to show association names for both ends of an association?

I'm trying to write OCL for an EA model, but am having problems traversing the diagram with only the 'link name'.

TIA,
Gary Wong

General Board / Unselectable "Diagram Note" in v3.60.653
« on: December 18, 2003, 03:23:45 pm »
Hi,

I recently upgraded to  v3.60 and have run into some strange behavior in my Logical Diagrams.

I can click the 'Diagram Note" icon on the toolbar to insert a selectable, moveable text box (in black text).  However, there still remains an unselectable (in blue) diagram note.  

Is there a way to turn this off?  I already have "Show Diagram Notes" unchecked in:
Tools -> Options -> Diagram

But I see that these are 'New Diagram Defaults'..  How do I turn off the auto diagram note in existing diagrams?

TIA,
Gary Wong

General Board / OCL specification for string "format"
« on: December 24, 2003, 12:33:54 pm »
Hi,

I have an OCL-related question.  How would I specify that that a 4-character attribute must follow a certain format, say 999X (three numerics followed by a string).

Would this be in the Constraints tab of the Attribute?  Is this even an appropriate usage of OCL?

TIA,
Gary Wong

General Board / Help on floating toolbars
« on: November 24, 2003, 03:19:15 pm »
Hi,

I'm on EA 3.51.615 (Build 615) and I accidentally floated up my Default and Project toolbars way up the desktop.  So 'up' in fact that I can't see the windows title bar to grab and pull back down!

Can anyone help?  I tried turning off the toolbar (from View -> Toolbars) but re-enabling them just puts 'em back waaay up high...

I feel like a doofus having done this, but I was giving a presentation of the models and wanted maximum screen real estate for the diagrams.  Next time, I'll just turn them off instead of floating them off...

TIA,

General Board / Class Report with inherited attributes/operations
« on: September 04, 2003, 01:39:36 pm »
Hello,

A client of mine (4th one that I've convinced to go buy EA... go  EA!!) wants to report on classes but he wants it to show the inherited attributes and operations on the specialization classes.

I know this isn't the norm, but I can see why he wants this.  Is it possible?  Either RTF or HTML would be good, although he prefers RTF right now.

TIA,
Gary

General Board / Question on UML Notation
« on: September 03, 2003, 05:05:13 pm »
Hi,

While reading the UML 2.0 Specs, at http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?ptc/03-08-02, I noticed the use of
- <<enumeration>> stereotype
- a 'copy' of a class in the same diagram

As an example, you can look at Figure 6 in section 7.3.

How would I create an <<enumeration>> stereotype in EA?  How would I create the individual literals?

The 'copy of a class' is a word I made up, to refer to a 'reference to a class already on the diagram'.  It is a simple box, with no methods or attributes (see the 'NamedElement' in the middle).  Of course, it isn't really a 'Class Diagram' per se so I may be out to lunch on using this concept.

However, I always have lines going between a specialization back to its generalization, and it would be much clearer to have the 'copy reference' instead.

TIA,
Gary Wong

Uml Process / Question on UML Notation [Crosspost]

 Hi,

Sorry for the cross-post, but I just realized that this is the more appropriate forum:
