Hi,

I've hit some strange behaviour when extending stereotypes from another profile. In my example i have a stereotype that extends the BPMN2.0::Activity. Once i have deployed my MDG i can create MyProfile::Activities just fine, with my extra tagged values etc.

However if i use the quicklinker to try and link to / create other valid BPMN elements - i'm not presented with any. But this is intermittent. A couple of days ago i was. Now i'm not.

I thought if i extended a stereotype the constraints from the base type were inherited ?

Further, on my MDG profile toolbox, i have add a couple of standard BPMN2.0 elements, Gateway, StartEvent and EndEvent - i can add these to a diagram just fine. However, again if i use the quicklinker to try and connect them via SequenceFlows, i'm not offered the SequenceFlow connector.

I have the BPMN2.0 Tech enabled and create normal BPMN2.0 Business Process Diagrams - all is ok on them. The issue occurs if i add these elements to my own MDG Diagram (which extends Diagram_Analysis). Any thoughts as to why this might be ?

Regards,

Jon.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Quicklinker question
« on: November 11, 2021, 04:52:29 am »
Hi,

In my MDG i have replaced legacy Quicklinker CSV with <<stereotyped relationships>> and all is now ok. Except for one small point.

In a few cases i want my users to use the quicklinker to form (suggested) relationships between two elements. However when dragging the quicklinker from the same source element to empty space, i do not want the quicklinker to (suggest) the target as a new element type. I could do this with the quicklinker csv (ie column N Create Element is blank). How can i do the same with <<stereotyped relationships>> or other meta model techniques ??

Thanks,

Jon.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / MDG Meta-constraints
« on: October 22, 2021, 01:47:42 am »
Hi,

I'm just looking at replacing my Quicklinker CSV with a meta model (stereotyped relationships etc). One bit i can't figure out from the docs and various vidoes out there - if i use the quicklinker on a diagram and drag to an empty space - how to i specify which valid element stereotypes and connectors to display ? Any hints ? Docs that explain ?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Delete results from model search that uses costom SQL ?
« on: October 15, 2021, 09:27:41 pm »
Hi,

I have a model search using SQL. Although i include the CLASSGUID and CLASSTYPE and can view properties. I've noted that if i right mouse click on a row in the search results i don't get the option to Delete the element. I do get this option with built in searches and those built using the Query Builder.

Is there any magic i can apply - names columns etc in SQL that will allow users to delete an element in the search results of custom SQL queries ?

Does the question make sense ?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Apply connector taggged value to multiple connectors ?
« on: March 30, 2021, 08:20:47 pm »
Hi,

Is it possible to apply a tagged value to multiple connectors ? I know I can do this we elements, but can't see a way to do it with connectors ?

Regards,

Hi,

Has anyone else seen this behaviour. In 15.2 AD sync is failing for groups with a large number of members - 600+ The AD sync dialogue lists all members, but fails to import members. Also when a member that does not have a Sparx account created yet, starts sparx their account is not automatically created - we have the check box to auto create checked. For groups with fewer members all works OK/as expected.

I've raised a support ticket - just wondering if others have seen the same behaviour ?

PCS General Board / ProCloud http query timeout
« on: January 29, 2021, 07:25:54 pm »
Hi,

I'm finding that http requests are timing out for complex queries submitted from Sparx clients connected to a repository via ProCloud. If they connect to the db directly (via OLE DB) from Sparx the query runs OK.

Is there a config setting somewhere in ProCloud set adjust the http query timeout ?

Jon.

Bugs and Issues / InvokeConstructPicker (string ElementFilter)
« on: December 10, 2020, 07:49:57 pm »
Hi,

Found an issue with InvokeConstructPicker (string ElementFilter). I understand the route cause now, as i put a trace on our db. Turns out that if you specify a StereoType (note case) as part of your ElementFilter - Sparx sends a seperate SQL request to t_xref for every element with the specified IncludesTypes. We have 8000+ elements with the specified type. The picker was taking 30 seconds to open. Drop the Stereotype filter and it loads in under a second.

I've raised a support ticket/bug with Sparx on the grounds that its stupid :-). I'll let you know what the feedback it.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Debugging Model based Add-in
« on: November 10, 2020, 04:43:25 am »
Hi,

Just started looking at model based add-ins. Any recommendation on how to debug ? I can't put breakpoints in or compile/check syntax/coding errors - any advice on that one ? Finally i don't seem to get code assist in the behaviour view - again any advice on that one ?

All above make me think the way to go might be to create my code in a normal JavaScript script and test via a test harness, then include the script in my JavascriptAddin class somehow (any advice on that ?) and just call my pre-tested methods in the event handlers. 

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

Anyone know the event that is fired / i capture when an element is dragged and dropped onto another element on a diagram please ? Better still anyone have some sample code of how to handle ?

I want to write an add-in that gives the user the option of forming a relationship between an element on a diagram and one dragged/dropped from the project browser onto it (and not add the element dragged/dropped onto the diagram - ie just form the relationship).

Thanks,

Jon,

Hi,

Is there an API to force a refresh of the diagram image used by WebEA ? If i make a change to a diagram via API, the diagram image is not refreshed. How can i force a refresh ?

General Board / Display a number in a circle next to elements on a diagram ?
« on: September 16, 2020, 05:23:48 am »
Hi,

I remember (i think) ready about a new feature that would allow modellers to display a number in a circle next to elements on a diagram - useful if you want to then use the number as a reference in documents that you might paste the diagram into.

Is this feature available - if so what's it called so i can find it in the help files ?

Regards,

Jon.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Automation interface on a server
« on: September 03, 2020, 07:24:52 pm »
Hi,

I know its a conversation that has come up many times on the forum. However I'm wondering if things have evolved in recent releases of Sparx/ProCloud. Is there now a *Sparx* support way of invoking the automation interface via a Windows Service / Server side code ? I know we can use the OSCL interface, but I'd like to invoke a DataMiner instance via a scheduled job on a server.

Regards,

Jon.

Hi,

I have this use case which i'd like some help with. We have a RTF report fragment with custom SQL. I'd like to prompt the user for a value, then pass the result to the ReportGenerator class and have it use the value in the where clause of the SQL fragment. Is this possible? Any way to pass a user entered value into the ReporGenerator. I can set Project Constants via the ReportGenerator - but there is no macro to query these in an SQL fragment (that i can see).

Any suggestions ?

Regards,

Jon.

General Board / Modelling design considerations?
« on: June 26, 2020, 05:34:21 pm »
Hi,

Any thoughts on the best way to model 'design considerations' in Sparx. Is there a standard UML approach to capturing design considerations. Any additional Sparx functionality that can/should be used to document these ?

Thanks,

Jon.
