With vertical tree style, it is expected that there will be multiple connectors converging onto a single target. Target labels are positioned so that they are kept separate from each other, and therefore readable. Add more blocks to the diagram and it should start to make sense.

General Board / Re: How do you select MDGs in EA Lite?
« on: April 07, 2017, 09:10:28 am »
In the Lite version, the MDG Technologies dialog is accessed from the Extend ribbon, not the Configure ribbon. The Manage Add-ins dialog is there also.

Hi Paolo

when i was trying to get help on my problem, browsing through content published by sparx. The user guide available on sparx website points to version 9.3 as below:

Is there any updated version which points to latest version (13)?



Yes you can. Give the stereotype a _metatype attribute with initial value set to the name of the stereotype.

I missed this first time around or I would have mentioned that you can do it with the UI: Right-click package in Project Browser > Code Engineering > Reset Options for this Package.

Thanks KP, I don't see a location element in the ArchiMate 3 Motivation toolbox (Strategy Concepts) only [Resource | Capability | Course of Action]???
Ah sorry, that'll be because I'm using an internal build.

I wonder what the decision was behind removing the element in the new archimate specification?

It hasn't been removed, just relocated. It is now in the ArchiMate 3 Motivation toolbox (Strategy Concepts) and Technology toolbox (Physical Extension).

Sounds like you have it set to Autohide. Right-click and switch off Autohide, then right-click and Hide.

I can find the list of default toolboxes in the documentation, but not the list of their elements (with exactly correct element names).

Is this help page useful?

General Board / Re: UML Types for Standard BPMN 2.0 stereotypes
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:58:21 am »
My question is, if I generalize my own MyStartEvent stereotype from BPMN2.0::StartEvent sterotype, why do I need to extend my own event-sterotype (MyStartEvent) from <<metaclass>> Event ? Don't I inherit the extension from the generalized StartEvent ?

BPMN2.0::StartEvent extends two metaclasses, Event and ObjectNode. EA needs to know which one you want to create.

General Board / Re: Populate checklist with model elements
« on: March 03, 2017, 11:35:33 am »
If you create a checklist and look at its tagged values, you will notice that its checkboxes are defined by some very simple XML:

Code: [Select]
    <Item Text="One" Checked="False"/>
    <Item Text="Two" Checked="False"/>
    <Item Text="Three" Checked="False"/>
    <Item Text="Four" Checked="False"/>

It shouldn't be hard to write a script to iterate diagram objects and create some XML in the same format.

>>  What form did the abjection take?

Oh, the usual. Banged my head on the floor, threw ashes over myself (still sneezing) and wore an extremely uncomfortable potato sack (I think there were a couple of small potatoes still in it).
So it didn't take the form of:

Wow, the users need a decent search mechanism - that, at least, works like most smarter modern searches!  Let me put in an URGENT feature request on their behalf!  ;)


Such feature requests always carry much greater weight when they come directly from users.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Base Class
« on: March 02, 2017, 09:15:27 am »

Could somebody explain to me the concept behind Base Classes in UML types, please?

Many thanks in advance, V.

If you want to define a global stereotype that extends Class, for example, you type "class" in the Base Class field. By global stereotype, I mean a stereotype that isn't part of a UML Profile. Most of the values for Base Class will be UML metaclasses, but there are some exceptions (e.g. "requirement") that you can pick up as you go.

1. Does your element have all of the tags and properties that the shape script is looking for? Are their values what the shape script is expecting?

2. This board of the forum is to "Suggest and discuss, with other users, features you would like to see added to Enterprise Architect." You appear to want the Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools board, two doors up. Please try to post on the correct board in future. Thanks.

You can try

Code: [Select]
SELECT * FROM t_glossary
from the SQL Scratch Pad and then copy and paste the results of that.
