Bugs and Issues / Re: EA 14.0: Find in Browser odd behaviour
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:59:39 pm »
"Find in all diagrams" has not ben removed has it?

I do agree with sparks on this one. The project browser search was really awkward and I always tried to steer my users away from it. I'm not sad to see it go.

What EA is missing though is an alternative "quick search" method. That is why I developed my quick search in the EA Navigator.

When compared to other options to find something in EA the EA Navigator is many times faster.


Setting the flow direction to horizontal on a (horizontal) BPMN diagram completely messes up the layout (and model)

All Pools and lanes get reduced in size making the Activities fall out of them (they also get moved out of the pool/lanes in the project browser)

Manipulating a (correct) diagram made in a previous version with the flow direction set also results in the same mess.

The only way to use BPMN diagram in v14 is to set the flow direction to None.

Yes, a foreign key is represented in the model by both a relation as an operation.

The properties are stored on the operation and its tagged values.


No, I don't know of any way to do that either.


Bugs and Issues / Re: Pro Cloud Server Performance

Has anyone got the Pro Cloud Server to work with an international team?  Can anyone advise how to make this usable?
Not the answer you are looking for, but I have some pretty good experiences using a terminal setup such as Microsoft Remote apps, or Citrix.
This works even on fairly low speed connections as it only send the application image over the network.
Performance of the application is the best you can get as both the remote server as the database can be located in the same datacenter.


PS. Oh, and don't use Oracle for EA. I've yet to meet someone who succeeded in getting EA to run smoothly on an Oracle database.  :-\

t_operationtag corresponds to Operation>Tagged Value> in the templates.

Isn't that stored in a tagged value?

And Shift-Alt-G for diagrams.

I've pinged the author for you. I'm sure he'll get back to you soon.


If you have installed your add-in, then the public classes in your dll should be registered to COM and thus also be available to the scripting environment.

In VBscript you can use the CreateObject() syntax just like you would with a class from .Net


EA has a built in auditing feature that you can use.

Another alternative is to connect to version control (maybe only for the critical parts of the model)


Dear Greet,

Yes, you did! My appology, I was blind :)
Once again thank you too.

No worries  :D


This could work if you treated your whole set of scripts as a library.
Write only function/subs, but in none of them actually call it.

Then make sure that you include all scripts using !INC
(internally these all get stitched together in single giant script)

Then you remember which script was run last and re-execute that.

It would be a lot of work, and I'm not sure of the benefit of it all, but it is doable.


PS. If you need "regular executable scripts" as well then you can create a second set that does nothing more then execute the sub/function in your script library.

For .NET projects you should be referencing Interop.EA.dll, not EA.tlb.

Wasn't that exactly what I posted? ???


I read it like:

This requires an additional argument to the addsubshape method

And indeed we see


That must be it no?
