General Board / Re: No "Date" type for a class attribute?
« on: April 27, 2016, 09:29:29 pm »
Thanks Geert,

I did not notice that Project|Settings|Project Options|Source Code Engineering had Default Language for Code Generation
(the corresponding page under Tools|Options does not).

Thanks a lot.

Thanks Geert.

My classes are not implementation classes but logical classes. In such classes, attributes (and attribute types) have no implementation.

Since it's not an implementation, I wanted to use the <none> choice in the Language drop-down box. But unlike Java and the other language choices, I cannot add a new datatype to the <none> 'language'. So, instead, I created a new language (“Logical”) and then associated all needed datatypes to that.

But now I cannot find a way to set "Logical" as the default ‘language’ choice on new classes.
(I did not find it under options, and neither did I find a way to set such default value in MDG for specific stereotypes)
Is that really not possible?

General Board / No "Date" type for a class attribute?

How do I specify a class attribute to be of type ”Date”?
Whether I set the class Language to “<None>” or “Java”, When I want to select the type of a new attribute, I do not get a “Date” option in the select box with types (String, Boolean Integer, ..).
I’m quite puzzled. I’m sure I’m missing something here (I even had to ask a colleague to double-check for me)  – what is it, I don’t see?

(until now, I have used sub elements instead of attributes - because attributes do not satisfy our modeling needs)

Thanks Geert.

And how do I associate my new customized attribute stereotype with my element stereotype - so that when the EA author creates attributes on that element, it will be attributes with my new attribute stereotype?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / MDG: tags on attributes?
« on: April 21, 2016, 09:01:45 pm »
I’m using MDG to create my metamodel, and have plenty of tags on customized elements (based on classes, components etc.)

But I don’t see how I can create a set of customized tags on the attributes of my elements.
How do I do that?

Me too :-)

General Board / Re: Poor diagram image quality in Web (HTML) Reports.
« on: February 04, 2016, 12:57:22 am »
Thank you very much everyone who took time to respond to this.

I'm still not happy with the image quality - and yes, I realize that it is an image and not vector graphics - but still.
But, at least I now know that it is not because I have set op options that affects the image quality negatively compared to what is to be expected.

My screen resolutions on my own workstations screens are "2560 x 1600 (recommended)", and I have seen it on several other workstations as well.

But again - I am impressed with your willingness to take time to respond, thanks a lot guys   :)

Great Geert,

can you please send me 400 clones of your Workstation  ;D

Ok back to serious: Unfortunately the workstations, I have tested this on presents blurry diagrams where the clean HTML text is sharper than the diagrams.

Are there more people out there - how does the diagram present itself on your workstation?

I'm looking at the image you posted, but it looks crystal clear to me. ???

Even if you compare the text in the image to the text (html) in the post?

General Board / Poor diagram image quality in Web (HTML) Reports.
« on: February 02, 2016, 12:45:02 am »
My HTML reports show blurred diagrams (both text and lines).
I have included an example below of how my Web report diagrams look like.

I have tried many different combinations of settings (Image Format in html report window; Scale Saved Bitmaps to %; Image Memory Limit MB; Renderer; GDI Plus Meta-files; Scale view by %; Anti-aliased text; Compress text to fit within Element; Clipboard image format; ...)

But I have not found the cause of the poor image quality.

So please anyone - help :-)  What are the important settings and their values for geting proper image quality og diagram images in Web reports

(I did see,25943.0.html - but that did not help me.)

General Board / Kanban dgms - hide the creator on elements?
« on: October 21, 2015, 12:00:23 am »
Kanban dgms always show the name of the element creator on elements.
I want to hide that - is that not possible?
I can of course delete the creator name on the element - but really ...  :)

General Board / Red triangle on element?
« on: January 29, 2015, 01:52:29 am »
What does this red triangle mean? - and in particular: how do I remove it?

I don't know how I happened to generate this red triangle.

If you happen to know, please let me know how to remove it.

General Board / Re: Mapping attributes/columns to each other ...?
« on: November 28, 2014, 11:37:48 pm »
Thanx for replying.
That is very interesting - of course, I prefer to keep as much as possible in our enterprise model in EA (traceablity, Impact graphs, dependency graphs etc).
I have considered a separate GUI (Excell or Web) for maintaining the gymnastics of mapping and even creating/deleting 'attributes' (<<InfoElem>>s) - although directly on the EA repository.
I take, that you still have the attributes modelled in EA? Did you automate synchronization between the attributes in EA and in Excel (via EAGuid?)?

General Board / Mapping attributes/columns to each other ...?
« on: November 28, 2014, 11:12:43 pm »
How do you map individual attributes to other attributes, e.g.:
- Business object's attibute to the DB column(s) implementing it
- Attribute to three other attributes that it is a compound of (e.g.concatenation)
In my model I have 'attributes' modeled as separate information elements (nested under their respective entities - just like normal attributes appear in the project browser). That gives me great freedom in mapping and other modeling like creating views (diagrams) with only a select set of attributes.
But I want to hear of other (your) experiences on treating attributes individually like e.g. mapping them to other attributes and elements.
Please let me hear your ways of doing this - I would appreciate it vere much.
