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.

If you can create a stereotyped InformationFlow using the quicklinker, then the tagged values associated with the stereotype should be created automatically. I have just tried it with a SysML1.4 ItemFlow between two Blocks and its tagged value is created. If you send your technology file to Sparx Support, somebody will be able to figure out what is missing.

General Board / Re: Sparx cannot find my XMI/XML files

When stepping through the MDG wizard, Sparx will not recognize my XML files, even though they are in the directory I specify.

1) Does this mean the files don't parse?

Yes it means the files don't parse. Which page of the MDG wizard? Presumably you are looking for UML Profile XML files? When I get this problem it is usually because I have forgotten to add the <<profile>> stereotype to the package before trying to save a profile.

Your Component can have a structure compartment - select the Component and Ctrl+Shift+Y - but unfortunately it always appears below the operations compartment.

This bug is NOT fixed. Take any dashed line and try to make it solid with an EA script. Only the horizontal segments are solid; vertical segments are invisible.

A_________>B works fine


      B does not work. Vertical portion is invisible


          ____>B does not work correctly. Vertical portion is invisible

Works for me (stereotyped Dependency using harvinder's shape script from the first post in this thread). What version of EA 13 are you using? What base connector type are you extending? What is your shape script? Line style? Diagram type? Source and target elements?

Suggestions and Requests / Re: Introduce new Models
« on: February 27, 2017, 10:01:59 am »
Hi all,

I busy making a new methodology like Archimate, Togaf. How can I make (with iconset) this model in Sparx 12.1 (Enterprise Architect)? Is there some documentation how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like you want to create an MDG Technology (EA's name for a DSML). This page of the help file has links to all the other pages of the help file that will walk you through the creation process.

Suggestions and Requests / Re: ToolBox - reuse of other stereotypes
« on: February 23, 2017, 01:15:23 pm »
I want to create ToolBoxes that offer the elements the users are allowed to use. So a toolbox will not contain self-created shapes only. It should also show standard elements from e.g. BPMN and ArchiMate.

Yes you can add elements from other technologies to your own toolboxes. For example, adding an attribute named "BPMN2.0::Activity(UML::Activity)" to your toolbox profile's stereotype element will add a BPMN 2.0 Activity to your toolbox. You will have to learn to read technology XML files to figure out the rest.

But, given NO Sparxians or other users have contradicted, sounds like I got it.

Just a reminder that you can't assume anything from the absence of a reply from Sparx. This is a user forum.
