Manage Structural Elements

You can add a number of structural - or embedded - elements to a modeling element. For example, you can add Ports to a Class, Action Pins to an Action, or Activity Parameter to an Activity. These structural elements cannot exist by themselves, they must be attached to a parent element.

The Type field defaults to the first in the list of types of structural element you can create for the selected element. If this is not the type you need, click on the drop-down arrow and select another type.

Enter details such as type, name and stereotype, and click on the OK button.

The embedded element now shows on the primary element as shown on the left.

You can add as many embedded elements as you need; modify or delete embedded elements using the Structural Elements dialog.

To incorporate inherited or owner properties, select the Show Owned/Inherited checkbox.

The name of the embedded element is a label, which you can edit using the Labels context menu.
