General Board / Re: Colour and shapescript inheritance in UML profiles

When using shape script, did you call DrawParentShape rather than DrawNativeShape?

Bugs and Issues / Re: EA 14.0.1419 Exclude Package from Report missing
« Last post by Piotr_Markiewicz on May 23, 2018, 02:49:05 pm »
Thanks RoyC
It is deep hidden in the submenu but I found this.
I'm just curious if this happend by mistake (lack of exclude in contex menu) or it was a conscious decision.

BTW. I have never seen that excluded package is someone mark in Project Browser. Nice to have such mark like for locked diagram with different icon.

Bugs and Issues / Re: Cloud Services logging bug

When using EA without cloud server there is an option to encrypt the connection string when saving a project shortcut. This is to avoid storing the password in plain text in the shortcut file.

Maybe there is something like that for the cloud server as well?

If not, you might be able to choose windows authentication instead of an SQL server user, or don't allow to save the password in the ODBC connection.

Matthew,

Have you tried setting the default appearance of your stereotype object?

General Board / Re: Document Generation; How to render Events of Tiggers

As it seems there is no way to include triggers in the template editor, you can explore the database in order to determine how your triggers are stored. Then, you can do a Document fragment to get the information of you trigger via an SQL. After that, just include your fragment into your document.

General Board / Colour and shapescript inheritance in UML profiles
« Last post by matthew.james on May 23, 2018, 01:51:01 pm »
So - I've created a UML Profile to extend an Archimate shape (ie a non-UML shape).
This I've done (based on instructions) by Extending the base Activity class and Generalising the Archimate shape - Archimate_BusinessFunction.

Mostly this is working fine but the colour inheritence is interesting - the new stereotype is inheriting the default fill colour from the Activity class, but the shapescript from the BusinessFunction stereotype ... is this normal or have I done something wrong ?

Of note:
- The UML profile has bgcolor="-1" which (I believe) says 'inherit from ancestor'
- Obviously there are two ancestors in this case, however I would have thought that appearance would be inherited from the stereotype ancestor not the class ancestor
- I can work around this by explicitly setting the colour for the new metaclass, but this then loses the benefits of inheriting appearance

Thoughts ?

General Board / Re: Default to not show connectors in other diagrams
« Last post by Glassboy on May 23, 2018, 11:55:38 am »
And it is MUCH easier to hide a connector that you can see than show a connector that you can't see. If you open a diagram and see that a new connector has suddenly appeared, that means that there is new information in the model that the person who created the diagram wasn't aware of. If it belongs in the diagram, great; if it doesn't, hide it. Better that than opening a diagram and not knowing if there is new information that may need to be shown.

That's certainly pragmatic.  The ArchiMate shapescript is probably the second or third worst in the base product, but the most worked on by your more knowledgeable customer base.  It would equally be as pragmatic to ask for their improvements and fold them into the product.

But it would indeed be a great help if a locked diagram was ... locked(!). And it should be a very minor and simple change in Sparx.

That's a diagram centric view not a model centric view.  A diagram is a representation of a number of elements in the model.  Elements that can belong to anyone, not just the creator of the diagram.

And it is MUCH easier to hide a connector that you can see than show a connector that you can't see. If you open a diagram and see that a new connector has suddenly appeared, that means that there is new information in the model that the person who created the diagram wasn't aware of. If it belongs in the diagram, great; if it doesn't, hide it. Better that than opening a diagram and not knowing if there is new information that may need to be shown.

General Board / Re: SPARX EA Enterprise does not start after last time

saugup05, I recommend contacting sparx support directly through the links below.

You'll need to include your EA build number and the OS version/build.

Why?

You're just showing the user the same information that they have already selected. How does this vary between the different options shown by the quicklinker? I can't see it being anything except noise for an end user.
