Hi Matt,

Welcome to the forum.

You should know that Sparx Systems has made this forum available for the users, and although we get regular posts from Sparx Systems employees, this is by no means an official Sparx System channel.
So if you want to consult the community then this is the place to be.
If you need a response from Sparx Systems then you better reach out to support at support@sparxsystem.com
And if they tell you something that you think might be interesting for the whole community, don't hesitate to post the information here.

IIRC we found we had to place them in the General stereotypes list with a base class of Diagram to get them to show up.

But that will not associate the MDG's diagram type with the general stereotype - correct?

Is there any way to add a stereotype (possibly as a default value) from within the MDG, to elements created from the MDG's diagram type?
I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean with "elements created from the MDG's diagram type"

Yes, that is possible.
Join t_attribute tags multiple times, each time with a constraint on the tag name.
Something similar to this:

Code: [Select]
left outer join [t_attributetag] v on (v.[ElementID] = att.[ID]
                                and v.[Property] = 'Versioned'))
left outer join [t_attributetag] ts on (ts.[ElementID] = att.[ID]
                                and ts.[Property] = 'Timesliced'))
left outer join [t_attributetag] dc on (dc.[ElementID] = att.[ID]
                                and dc.[Property] = 'Data Classification'))

This gets the data for tagged values with name Versioned, Timesliced and Data Classification.
Use dc.Value as DataClassification in order to use the field in your result set.

Try it with different webbrowsers.

There nothing you can do on the CSV export part. The implementation in EA is flawed and doesn't deal well with newlines.
What I did in similar circumstances was write a script that exported content right into Excel.

I'm pretty sure what you saw is normal behavior for EA.

I don't think this is the best place to search for regex help.
Have you tried StackOverflow?

On a sequence diagram you should be using instances, not classifiers.
So you can reuse as many times the same entity as long as you create different instances of that entity.

The easiest solution is to use Repository.GetPackageByGUID with the guid of the returned package element.

Sparx doesn't guarantee this, but I've never known it to fail.

Otherwise you'll have to get the package ID from the miscdata (0 I think) and then use that to get the package object.

I just found this operation on the EA.Repository class, but it doesn't seem to be documented.
Does anyone have any idea what it does?

I've seen something similar right after doing a getlatest in code.
I had to get the package again using Repository.GetPackageByGUID before it would report an accurate number of packages.

I'd rather have the translations missing formatting and have a clear distinction between them with each one in a logical place.
You might, but my clients don't. They insist on having the ability to enter formatted text for all languages.
I must say I can't blame them.

Now if tagged values could contain formatted text, that would be a different story.

Simon,

You are forgetting that the notes field is the only field that has formatted text.
No such thing in tagged values unfortunately.

For the document generation you'll need to use script templates.

I've published an example on my website that uses such a script template.

We (in Belgium) often use some kind of markup to indicate the language of the notes.
e.g.
Code: [Select]
<EN>this is English</EN>
<NL>dit is Nederlands</NL>
Then we use clever script fragments to get the right part into the documents.
I even have one client for which I wrote a complete add-in dedicated to managing the structured notes.

If you want to also have the names of things in two languages then you can use the alias.
There a setting that allows you to easily switch from alias to name in diagrams.
