PCS Frequently Asked Questions / Printing from the Web
« on: December 03, 2018, 11:42:24 pm »
Hi,

Is it possible to generate documentation via Prolaborate - using a Document Template define in Sparx. We have users in for example our Audit team that would like to create a word/pdf document using a Sparx Document Template we have created for them. We currently use the Sparx client to produce the documents for them upon request. Going forward it would be good if they could produce the docs themselves via a web interface.

I know I can't do this with WebEA today - any plans to add this capability to WebEA in the future ?

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

I can see Repository.GetTreeSelectedPackage to get the current selected package in the project browser. I want to get a collection of the selected packages however, ie 1 or more selected packages. Anyone know if I can do this via the API ?

Regards,

Jon.

Quick q for Sparx employees monitoring the forum - when will we be able to post to the new ProCloud / WebEA lists/forums ? I have a question about the future of WebEA now that Sparx has a stake in Prolaborate ?

Bugs and Issues / Structural Elements Dialogue
« on: September 11, 2018, 11:38:13 pm »
Hi,

Since upgrading to v13 (currently on v13.5) we are being presented by the Structural Elements dialogue whenever we drag and drop Events or Swimlanes from the Project Browser onto a diagram. Which is annoying - can we stop this ? Worse still, for events when we drag and drop them from the Project browser onto a diagram, they resize - and render with a weird / larger than default shape. Again any clues as to why this might be happening.

Hi,

Does anyone have an example of how we can have multiple labels in a Shape Script. Specifically, I want to have a label shown below an Activity and another above, the code below will add below. But if I add a second label (as shown below) - both labels just appear above...

shape label
{
   layouttype = "leftright";
        v_align = "top";
   h_align = "left";
   setOrigin ("SW",0,0);
   
   if (HasTag("id"))
   {
      println ("#TAG:id#");
   }
}

this works fine, however if I then add,

shape label
{
   layouttype = "leftright";
        v_align = "top";
   h_align = "left";
   setOrigin ("NW",0,0);
   
   if (HasTag("frequency"))
   {
      println ("#TAG:frequency#");
   }
}

both labels get displayed at the NW (top left) ... not what I want. I also have another problem that I'm hoping someone can help with, although the label placement is horizontally aligned to the left - the actual label text is not - its centred - is there a way to set the alignment if the actual text in a shape script - not just its placement ?

General Board / Label alignment
« on: May 04, 2018, 07:20:32 pm »
Hi,

On my diagrams, labels where showing aligned left in the past. Now they are showing aligned centre. We have many modellers using our repository. I'm wondering is there a default setting somewhere that I'm not aware of that would change the default alignment of labels at a model level - ie would effect everyone using the model ?

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

One for the Sparx moderators - you have release the beta of v14 to get early customer feedback - that's great, hopefully some of the feedback will be taken on board - in order to make Sparx an even better product !

My question here is about WebEA - any chance you can setup a sandbox where we can use and feedback on early beta releases of WebEA ? I'm aware that there are a couple of new features in the upcoming release of WebEA. I'd like to test/view these and feedback. It strikes me that early customer feedback on features on a web platform, such as WebEA, is something Sparx should be driving for... just a thought :-).


Regards,

Jon.

Suggestions and Requests / WebEA view child diagrams
« on: March 08, 2018, 11:06:59 pm »
Hi,

We have raised an official feature request via my company; but wanted to post here as well to see if there is general support for a feature that I think is very much needed in WebEA.

We have a large process model in Sparx. Its hierarchical, in that users can click on a 'Sub-process' to see its child/composite diagram. Or they can until we move to WebEA - which we would very much like to as its a steps up from static html.

However in WebEA if you click on any element with a child diagram, you are taken to the elements property sheet, from which there is no way to navigate to the child diagram !

The ideal solution would be a pop-up context menu when you click on an element with a child diagram, from which you can either select the elements property page or the child diagram. Failing that a clearly visible link on the elements property page to the child diagram.

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

Anyone know if there is an API that can be used to add a document (as an artefact in t_object and corresponding extdoc entry in t_document) to a Sparx repository ? If there isn't' an API has anyone got a script that does this ?

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

Is there a way to open the Relationship Matrix via a script ? Ideally also set the 'profile' and/or source and targets ?

Regards,

Hi,

I'm assuming this is possible - just not sure how. I want to include clickable links (hyperlinks) to model elements and diagrams in the text displayed in the Sparx system output window. Anyone have a VB script example of how to do this ? Any pointers to help/guides ?


Regards,


Jon.

Hi,

Anyone aware of any secret db column holding the connector created date ? can't see it in t_connector. Can I get it at all or do I need to alter the table to include a created timestamp ?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Convert to local copy
« on: September 05, 2017, 07:57:53 pm »
Hi,

I can see a clone method on the Element Class. But I can't see the equivalent of the menu option Advanced -> Convert Linked Element to Local Copy in the API anywhere. Does the equivalent exist in the API ? Or do I clone the element and add (move) it to the required Package object ?

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

Is there a way to automatically show custom compartments for a given stereotype? I've added a shapescript to a stereotype. It works and displays my compartments - but only if I select the Features & Properties -> Feature and Compartment Visibility and check the option to show my custom compartment. I'd like them to be shown by default somehow. My shapescript is below, it adds and compartment and shows the details of related Activities and Components...

shape RelatedElement
{

if(HasProperty("Element.Stereotype", "Activity"))
   {      
   SetCompartmentName("Process");
   AppendCompartmentText("#Connector.Name#   #TAG:taskType#: #Element.Name#");
   }   
   
      if(HasProperty("Element.Type", "Component"))
   {      
   SetCompartmentName("IT Systems");
   AppendCompartmentText("#Connector.Name#   #Element.Stereotype#: #Element.Name# - #Element.Alias#");   
   }         

   
   
   if(HasProperty("Element.Stereotype", "MeasurementPoint"))
   {      
   SetCompartmentName("Measurement Points");
   AppendCompartmentText("#Connector.Name#   #Element.Name#:  #Element.Alias#");
    }         
   
   if(HasProperty("Element.Stereotype", "ControlCategory"))
   {      
   SetCompartmentName("Control Category");
   AppendCompartmentText("#Connector.Name#   #Element.Name#");
    }
   
   
   if(HasProperty("Element.Stereotype", "DataObject"))
   {      
   SetCompartmentName("Deliverables");
   AppendCompartmentText("#Connector.Name#:  #Element.Name#");   
   }   
}

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Shapescript #TAG
« on: July 12, 2017, 06:37:16 pm »
Hi,

I have a tagged value of type <memo> (ie value is <memo> and notes contain the tagged values actual value/content). In my shape script if I use 'print("#TAG:condition#")' where condition is the tagged value name - the value column, ie <memo> is displayed note the actual value in the notes field. Is there anyway in a shapescript to print the actual value of a tagged value of type memo ?

Regards,

Jon.
