SPEM Element appearance

Every SPEM stereotype can be presented in one of two ways:

  • Iconic presentation, where the shape is the object's icon (as shown for Designer, which has the Role Definition icon shape), or
  • Textual presentation, where the shape is a rectangular outline with the object's icon as a decoration in the top right corner (as shown for SPEM_TaskDefinition)

To set the presentation format for an element, use the iconstyle Tagged Value. To use:

  • Iconic presentation, set the iconstyle Tagged Value to True
  • Textual presentation, set the Tagged Value to False
