Bugs and Issues / Link to element feature
« on: January 11, 2010, 11:29:51 am »
What a neat new feature.
Very useful for data modelling.

But seems to have some teething problems
1) note poor positioning of some open rectangles
2) note incorrect positioning of line end in one example
2) where line has feature enabled for both ends in some cases it is no longer selectable

Bugs and Issues / Re: Foreign Keys
« on: January 12, 2010, 08:55:27 am »
Hi Paulo, thanks for your help.
The diagram properties are more or less at the defaults, including Information Engineering as the default, and barring showing stereo types.
Label visibility is set to show all labels.
This is part of what puzzled me.
Having set up the foreign key relationship (evidenced by the FK shown in the MeshblockHistory table), which included cardinalities, they do not show up on the diagram,
or in the association properties!

Bugs and Issues / Re: Foreign Keys

OK, being a bit disingenuous here, because I went and read the documentation and found the answer.

This is an example where order matters. To quote from http://www.sparxsystems.com/uml_tool_guide/data_modeling/create_a_foreign_key.html "Click on the Table to contain the Foreign Key (source) and draw the connector to the other Table (target)."

So, well and good, I create a new association in the correct order, and manage to create a foreign key (see image).

But I don't see the connector labels appearing as is implied by the documentation.
And I don't see the relationship appear in the FK dialogue box.
Am I missing something.

Finally, in my excitement of creating a foreign key I forget to set the correct cardinality,
but blowed if I can find out how to see the (default) values that were entered, or where to change them.

Suggestions and comments welcome.

Bugs and Issues / Foreign Keys
« on: January 11, 2010, 02:19:49 pm »
I'm struggling with foreight keys, while doing a little bit of physical data modelling (somebody has to).



In the above diag I have created an association, selected Foreign Keys from the association context menus, and get the message shown.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Section numbers & TOC wrong in generated RTF d
« on: January 11, 2010, 06:52:24 am »
You joining a less than select group who have encountered issues in this area.

The best thing to do is report this as a issue (see Support - Report a bug) on the footer of this forum page).

Bugs and Issues / Re: Data model - export column attributes
« on: December 24, 2009, 09:44:58 am »
I'd really appreciate a quick start for the tables to join to extract
Table, Column,
I see the t_attribute table
and the in t_object some classes are the tables I want, I'm guessing to use Stereotype to select them.

I'm hasppy to post my script afterwards

thanks

Hmmm, thanks for the quick reply.
I guess I'll have to find my way around the data model.
I've just had a "quick look" and it appears that there are no relationships (referential integrity) defined, or is that just my import not picking them up?

Bugs and Issues / Data model - export column attributes
« on: December 23, 2009, 12:14:35 pm »
A question for which I am seeking assistance.

How would I go about extracting and exporting to a spreadsheet (or CSV) a list of all tables, their columns, and attribute details (eg name, type, length, PK, FK, not null, unique, ...) from a package (and all sub packages)?

Bugs and Issues / Data model - show length attribute
« on: December 23, 2009, 12:18:22 pm »
In the attributes dialogue box columns "PK, Name, Type, etc" are shown in the columns table.

How can I also display the length in that table.
I tried RMB but there is no context menu for this table in tha dialogue box.

Bugs and Issues / How to show diagram that is under an element
« on: December 10, 2009, 09:48:36 am »
I have a package, with elements, and to get the order right, a diagram under an element. See this diagram - section 1.2.3 services.

The diagram does not show in the RTF document.
Here are the document template settings I have. Note that the diagram name shows, but not the image,
any suggestions?

I have now sent in a bug report with test case for this problem.

Bugs and Issues / Non elements appearing in generated documents
« on: November 17, 2009, 08:39:18 am »
In 849 and 850 we are seeing "non elements" (such as boundaries) appearing in generated RTF documents in some circumstances as child elements.

Has anyone else observed this behaviour?

It appears different from previous versions (ie documents that used to look OK are now different), and looks buggy.

Bugs and Issues / Diagram with elements from locked packages
« on: November 24, 2009, 01:09:42 pm »
I'm creating and updating diagrams which contain elements from other packages.
Using SQL Server we have the User Lock on all objects in the model.

Most formatting works on these elements when they not locked by me, but there are two things that I can't do when the elements are I don't have the elements locked.
These things are display/formatting only, so they should not, I think, require the original element to be unlocked:
  • change Z Order of element
  • Use Rectangle Notation

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks.
I'll try to create a test case to report.
