General Board / Re: RTF Scale Diagrams over footer
« on: Today at 09:00:56 pm »
If the diagram is cropped you may have an issue with scaling.

Do you have multiple monitors with different scaling settings, or a high dpi monitor?

The windows scaling somehow seems to mess up the diagram export.

t_attributetag with matching ElementID. In both cases it refers to t_object.object_id (note the consistence in the naming).

Actually t_attributeTag.ElementID corresponds with t_attribute.ID

1. I've never seen that option before. Must be something specific to the type of element, or the stereotype.

Hi Adrian,

In my setup the add-in manager EA was only aware of one add-in (the addin-manager) and all additional addins were loaded from there, so I did not really have that issue.
I would guess that accessing an instance of an add-in class created by EA would be impossible, but I never really tried that.

"7" seems to be an important magical number  ;)

1. the definitive values and their meaning that a column (attribute) has

Do you mean like an enumeration?
e.g. Attribute Order Status with possible values Pending, Ordered, Processing, Delivered?

In that case you define an enumeration in your model with these values and set it to be the type of your attribute.
On each of the values you can add a description.

Olivier,

Don't invest too much in the "old" quicklink CSV format as it has been deprecated in versioin 14.
You can now control the quicklink using some kind of meta modelling.

General Board / Re: More 'natural' curved connectors ?
« on: Today at 03:52:21 pm »
I think this is what I heard Simon say ...  ;)
"At this stage changes to the behaviour of bezier curves is not a priority in our product roadmap"
I can't say I don't agree.
Given the fact that bezier curves are hardly used by anyone, I think there are other, more pressing issues to tackle.

Do you only have that when you generate PDF directly?
We always generate to .docx and I've never seen such behavior. (we also have some landscape templates with large diagrams)

Yes you can execute public operations on an installed add-in. That is precisely what EA is doing.

I actually starting writing an add-in manager a few years ago.

The idea was to only install one add-in, and dynamically load and call the other add-ins from this add-in.
So when EA triggers an event, this add-in was to forward the event to all add-ins that had implemented the corresponding operation.

I never finished the project, but the code is still available on github: https://github.com/GeertBellekens/Enterprise-Architect-Toolpack/tree/master/EAAddinManager

I don't really understand what you mean with "overlay my page footer".
Does your footer not reach right side of the page (up to the margin?)

If that is the case I guess you'll either have to make your footer longer, or your right page margin wider.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Database RE - game breaking bug - need workaround
« on: September 22, 2018, 12:31:42 am »
Check if you have "EAUML::table" as a stereotype in the model stereotypes list.

If it is in there then it will nog resolve to this instead of the stereotype of the EAUML profile.
Deleting it from the list should solve that problem.

You can find the complete code on github:

General Board / Re: Scripted Automation of database RE

No, I don't think so.
You can't execute it via the API, and you can't influence it with templates or anything like that.

What we did was do some post-processing after importing the database.
I remember that there were a number of things we needed to fix after importing a DB2 database from a mainframe (over ODBC).
The program we wrote parsed the DDL and did some corrections and additions based on the info found in there.

Adding
Code: [Select]
and len('<Search Term>') > 0seems to be working for SQL Server.  Should be the same in Access syntax (.eap and .eapx)
