Bugs and Issues / Re: EA clear the file. Now 's empty 0Ko

You can contact Sparx per mail, but a 0k EAP simply means you got nothing. EAP == MDB (or whatever that suffix was for Mickeysoft Access). What Peter said...

You only recognize that your backups did not work when you need them.

So there's the issue. Either use the user with the right privileges or enable the Surface user for using Lock Elements.

Are you using the same EA user? Have you turned on security?

I'm an alien in this area. Maybe there's a way with EA's doc feature or eaDocX is something to help out. So what I did is to use the automation to create a LaTeX document and create PDFs from that. Works a charm. Unfortunately, once I loosen the grip people start jelling for Word documents (just to break off hell and demand changes in unreadable Word revision histories to be reflected in the model which in the meantime has developed and you can't get it in synch). Sigh.

I have not much of an idea about EA's documentation features. But changing the appearance depending on tagged values is something you can achieve with shape scripts rather easily.

Sounds exotic :-) I guess the best is to contact Sparx support via mail.

Bugs and Issues / Re: hasProperty("concurrency")
« on: October 04, 2017, 12:11:15 am »
Yes, I stumbled upon that meanwhile. However, the element property does not seem to get triggered, but the message does. I'm just at the beginning of streamlining that part of the documentation. Luckily you can debug this with
Code: [Select]
print("#<property>#");
There are more strange things like "datecreated" (who would use that in a shape script if you can only test for equality??). Another one "isvisilble" seems very odd. Will it be true if the element is hidden (how would you do that?) and then you can render curses?

According to the help this is listed under elements. I have not found any element with such a property. However, messages in SDs do have that property and the shape script reacts correctly. So I guess this is simply a faulty documentation here?

q.

I think I have seen it one in a shape script (from which MDG was that?). Maybe a grep for "hasproperty" through Geert's lib could give some additional enlightenment.

P.S. Here's the result of such a grep. First is the first hasproperty paramenter and the second are the 2nd parameters used

P.P.S. The help only comes up with that: http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/12.1/building_models/query_methods.html which is more than nothing, but leaves a lot room for guessing. I'll have to update my ShapeScript book with a bit background.

Bugs and Issues / Re: To rectangle or not to rectangle?

There appears to be a bug that selecting NONE for the default image sets a value that other parts of EA believes a value has been assigned. In particular, it is preventing a shape script from rendering, which means the base UML renders.

The result of selecting NONE should be identical to having never set a default image.

Setting the alternate image (not default) to none draws correctly. However I did notice that if I explicitly set an image and then clear it, the label for the datastore is removed.

Of course, this does not tell HOW it will be rectified. I'd guess that the setting of the Default Image will be corrected.

Reply from Sparx: This has been confirmed to be corrected in a future build.
