Display Tagged Values On Diagrams

If you have extended the properties of a Requirement, you might want to make those properties visible in the Requirement elements in your diagrams, by switching on display of the element tags compartment.

You can do this in one of three ways:

  • To display the tags compartment on all elements on a diagram, double-click on the diagram background and select the 'Elements' tab of the diagram's 'Properties' dialog; select the 'Tags' checkbox and click on the OK button
  • Alternatively, to show the tags compartment on all elements in the diagram, click on the diagram background, press Ctrl+2 to display the Properties window (if it is not already visible), and then click on the 'Compartments' tab of the window; select the 'Tags' checkbox
  • To display the tags compartment on a specific element on a diagram, regardless of the compartment setting for the diagram, right-click on the element and select the 'Compartment Visibility' option; select the 'Tags' checkbox in the 'Show Element Compartments' panel of the 'Compartment Visibility' dialog, and click on the OK button

The Tagged Values are then displayed in the Requirement element on the diagram.
