Bugs and Issues / Removal of Connector leads to error
« on: August 11, 2021, 11:48:53 pm »
Since some time, when I remove a connector from a diagram, after acknowledging that the connector should be removed from the model, the connector remains in the diagram.
  • If I then close the diagram and reopen it, the connector is gone
  • If I try to remove the connector again, I get an error message "Either BOF or EOF is True, or the current record has been deleted" (which is, of course, correct)
It would seem that the diagram is not updated correctly after removal of a connector.
Any thoughts?

EDIT: Selecting the connector a second time leads to multiple instances of the error message. However, the contents of the connector is still available after clicking away the messages.

I'm seeking to add a few custom tagged value types to an existing (Archimate Capability in this specific case) stereotype, so that when I add a new element to the repository it automatically has the tagged value types (to avoid having to add them to each new element based on that stereotype).
The EA help/user guides are not really any help (as they tell you what you can do, but not how to do it).
Can anyone give me some directions as how to achieve this (so not just what to do, but also how to do that)?

Bugs and Issues / Boundaries and Default Image: label visibility
« on: September 23, 2020, 06:24:41 pm »

when I assign an image to a boundary (by using "Select a Default image..." or "Select an Alternate Image..."(by the way, what is the difference?)), the name of the boundary is no longer displayed.
Is there a way to overcome this (other than to put a Text Element on the boundary)?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Connector label visibility
« on: September 03, 2020, 05:18:40 pm »
Hi All,

I'm having an issue with connector label visibility, in that only Source and Target Bottom labels are shown, even though, in the label visibility dialogue, all labels are marked as visible. I haven't found a global setting for this, but in another post it was suggested that default label visibility might depend on the connector class it was based on (UML 2.1, vs. IDEF1X, etc.).
Does anyone have any experience with this?

Enterprise Architect seemingly knows which elements are contained within  a boundary in a diagram; when the boundary is dragged, all elements within are dragged along.
However, when programming against EA, I do not seem to be able to find the Elements contained within a Boundary; the Boundary can be found as a DiagramObject, but the Elements and Connectors collections of the Boundary are both empty, and I cannot glance from the documentation how to find the Elements.

I'd appreciate any hints on how to proceed. T.I.A.
