Bugs and Issues / Quick Linker from a connector
« on: December 05, 2016, 07:04:01 am »
I was again tempted to play with V13 where I noticed a quick linker appearing when clicking a connector. Strange enough that, it suggests a number of connector types. Anyhow, none of them seem to be allowed. What is this? Some kind of new feature or some kind of new bug?

Bugs and Issues / Help in V13
« on: December 03, 2016, 07:50:09 pm »
Sometimes (not often) I switch to V13. Now I opened the help here and find that the help page for V13 does no longer have the index to the left from where it was (rather) easy to navigate to the API description. What is the next step? A direct link to Google?

Bugs and Issues / Search forum
« on: November 12, 2016, 04:21:28 am »
Every now and then I try my luck with the forum search. The latest encounter is the Search Order drop down. I set it to Oldest topic first. But the result was just in random order. At least I could not guess what definition of oldest is underlying in this sort. Also the contents of the between-fields seems to be ignored completely.

Uml Process / Event in state machine
« on: November 06, 2016, 04:42:33 am »
Out of curiosity: in state machines the toolbox shows an entry called Event which resembles a Receive and Send Event (used in ADs). Now, when creating it in a SM it will just create a Send-shaped Event. They all are of metatype Event. In ADs you can create both. In the browser they appear as this twin-icon like in the SM toolbox. Now my questions:

- I was pretty sure having seen a way to convert send to receive and vice versa, but can't find anything in that direction. Possible?
- Are Receive events valid in SMs?

q.

P.S. I found an example of receive being used in a SM in the UML specs.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Different SQL formats
« on: October 17, 2016, 10:24:14 pm »
Does anyone have a reference that shows the differences between SQL syntaxes in various databases EA uses? Particularly I'm looking for differences between PostgreSQL and Oracle (though other xrefs are also nice to know).

Something like this:
  • Columns names: Oracle needs upper-case, postgres needs lower, others don't care
  • Wildcards (% in most DBs vs * in some MS products)
  • sub-selects (yes/no)

From personal pain I know some of those trap doors, but would like to see more in advance.

Thanks.

Bugs and Issues / Repository.PropertyTypes returns zero result set
« on: September 23, 2016, 11:07:17 pm »
I'm currently trying to read the PropertyTypes but always get a zero result set. Can someone confirm that (latest V12)?

Interestingly I can add new entries.

Suggestions and Requests / Stop SPAM (again)
« on: September 23, 2016, 07:25:27 am »
It would probably help a lot if newly joining users were limited to say 2 posts within an hour or so for 3 days. Spammers usually start to spam at once. And when they are blocked at once a mod can see they are spammers latest after the weekend and kick them. In the meantime the few extra spams don't hurt.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / TaggedValues.GetAttribute
« on: August 28, 2016, 06:47:55 am »
I'm wondering what that might be. The help says
Quote
Returns the text of a single named property within a structured Tagged Value.
Parameters:
propName: String - the name of the property for which the text is being returned
Now, that does not make me much wiser. So I passed an arbitrary string, but anything but a null string results in

What's this?

Similarly for HasAttributes:
Quote
Returns True if the Tagged Value is a structured Tagged Value with one or more properties.
My tag is clearly inside a structure (it's from a BPMN Activity). But what are those properties?

q.

P.S. Seems I found out what those properties are.  Thanks to Google. So I guess the error message is just one of those "you did something wrong, stupid" ones.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / DiagramObject.SetFontStyle
« on: August 28, 2016, 12:14:50 am »
I tried this with simply
Code: [Select]
DiagramObject.SetFontStyle("Arial", 12, 0, 0, 0, 0)but got false in return. GetLastError was empty. Any advice on how to get this to work?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / DiagramObject.TextAlign
« on: August 27, 2016, 11:20:20 pm »
The help says
Quote
Indicates the alignment of text on a Note element on the diagram.
     1 = Left aligned
     2 = Center aligned
     3 = Right aligned
Defaults to 1 if an invalid value is supplied.
But it always returns 1 and can't be altered. Further: where could that be done with the GUI?

Bugs and Issues / Show fully qualified tags
« on: August 27, 2016, 10:17:29 pm »
In my current API tests I came around the Fully Qualified Tags checkmark in Feature and Compartment Visibility. When I turn on Tags, my tags show nicely. But when I tick Fully Qualified Tags the Tags tick is removed and no tags are shown in the compartment. Unfortunately the Help button does not lead to any page that explains the meaning of the tick marks. What's wrong here?

q.

It's getting embarrassing, I know.

Now this one again shows the setting of the flag, but an attempt to change it does simply reset it to false.

Since the next one I tested did also not work, I will stop asking here. Maybe I'm doing something stupid?

q.

28
Maybe I miss something here. The help says
Quote
Indicates whether the object's composite diagram should be displayed by default when the object is selected.
What does "selected"  mean here? Trying to change the property did not work. It's always false. Similarly ShowConstraints: what does that mean? And it does not change anything. Always false.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / DiagramObject.IsSelectable
« on: August 27, 2016, 03:14:47 am »
This one did neither return the setting of the diagram object, nor did it change anything when trying to set it.

q.

So here's the next one that came with 12.1: These return (for the font I tested) the settings for bold, italic and underline. But once I tried to set any value here (I just tried with 1 since it returned 1 for bold fonts) it did reset the font to plain.
