Main View - Diagram

When a diagram is selected, the Main View content area displays the entire diagram as a single image.  As an example, this is the Pro Cloud Server diagram in the EAExample model:

Objects on the diagram are selectable and, based on the object type and if the 'Properties View' is visible, will behave slightly differently.

The behavior when the 'Properties View' is not visible:

  • Packages: opens the selected Package in the Object List mode
  • Diagrams: opens the selected diagram image
  • Elements: opens the selected element in the Main View
  • Hyperlinks to external URLs: navigates away from WebEA and loads the external URL

The behavior when the 'Properties View' is visible:

  • Packages: main properties are displayed in the 'Properties View'
  • Diagrams: main properties are displayed in the 'Properties View'
  • Elements: main properties are displayed in the 'Properties View'
  • Hyperlinks: navigate to link target

Notes

  • To view the properties of a diagram either display the Properties View, or (when using a screen width less than 800 pixels) click on the Properties icon button in the Navigation bar
