Elements Used in Toolboxes

When you are creating Toolbox pages for your MDG Technology, you can incorporate both standard UML elements and new elements that you have created by extending the UML elements. You define the elements you want to use in the Toolbox Profile. The table below lists the names you use to identify either:

·The standard elements to include in the Toolbox page or
·The standard  elements you are extending to define new elements to include in the Toolbox page

Each name you list in the Toolbox Page Stereotype elements is preceded by the namespace UML::. The text in red indicates the label name displayed in the default Toolbox pages, where this differs in any way from the UML:: statement text.
