Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Generating UI code
« on: December 01, 2005, 01:30:22 am »
It's just a bit of Perl ;-)

(or VB, if you prefer)

Check out other postings in this section, Thomas has posted a few things on the subject.

You can (probably) write a 5-liner in Perl to access the stuff you need, though it won't have a GUI !

Excuse me, that's how you spell "Realisation" ... unless you're American !

Maybe that's why it hasn't been done - because it's literally awesome ...?

My 2 cents...
Of course - Euro-users now have cents as well ! Our kids just call them Euro-pennies.

PS. Did you know that old French 10F coins in some cases work in 1 EUR coin machines ?
Since 10F is (was) worth more than 1 EUR, it wasn't cheating !

So beware of those who authorised the million spend feeling threatened by a change ...

A year ago I put in a Feature Request about model validation rules, but did not get a reply (or if I did and deleted it, it was "no plans for this").

Don't suppose using %20 for 'space' helps, does it ?

Although it does come up on the forum from time to time !

Definitely not JNI, you don't want to go there unless you have to.

For simple stuff (and even clever stuff - see Thomas' postings), Perl (Win32::OLE) is tops - and I'm a seasoned Java type !

But go over to SourceForge and have a look at JCOM - let us know what you find !

Blimey! Self-describing software!

(guess) Might well be an Attribute of some type ...?

In which case, send them the XMI, and state that it's "the industry standard format".

It's Visio's problem if it can't import XMI, not EA's that it can't export Visio.

Maybe they can then buy one copy of a tool to import XMI and export Visio.

Sorry, that's not very 'helpful', I know :-(

This http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnvisio02/html/umlxmi.asp goes the wrong way ...

If Visio has an Automation interface, perhaps you could traverse the model in EA using Perl or VB, and duplicate it into Visio ;-)

Or maybe use this http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=FE118952-3547-420A-A412-00A2662442D9&displaylang=en (Office 2003: XML Reference Schemas) to convert XMI into Visio using XSLT  !

If the Visio users are editing the model, surely they should be editing it in EA ?

If EA's diagrams do not show what you require, why not customise them appropriately ? EA's RTF docs and diagrams could be imported 'as-is' into a larger document if required.

Why does Visio need to be brought into the equation ?

What can it do to a UML model that EA doesn't do - a copy of Visio costs the same as the Desktop edition of EA.

[Silly questions, I know: "Because our company needs Visio !!"]

Or maybe you should be working in Visio too, and not EA ?

Just making sure that we're trying to answer the right question ...
