Suggestions and Requests / "X" Close Diagram Button on the Tab
« on: September 06, 2007, 08:58:16 pm »
I'm used to have diagram tabs on the top. It would be nice to have the Close Diagram Button (little "x") situated on the tab, like Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

It could be be implemented by an option
[] Close Diagram Button is on the Tab
  which will be active when
[] Main Diagram Tabs at Bottom
  is unchecked.

Suggestions and Requests / Move an element to a package
« on: November 09, 2006, 12:49:00 am »
Select an element (one or more) in project browser.
Right click and  select "Move Into package" (new feature).
Select a Package using tree control.

It's terrible to move an element between packages if you have dozens of elements in them.

Suggestions and Requests / Add warning - Shift Space make red triangles
« on: November 13, 2006, 03:53:48 am »
If Sparx want the shortcut for bookmarking an element to be Shift Space, let it be so.
But then please add some kind of warning when a user use this shortcut first time.

This will safe some advance user's time. I think every advance user know the question "How can I remove the strange red triangle?" .

Suggestions and Requests / Consistent help
« on: November 13, 2006, 03:47:17 am »
I think it will be of much help and not so much work to add some pages to help file regarding:
- showing and hiding things at different levels (project, diagram, element)
- formating things at different levels (project, element, elemnt in diagram) - colours, fonts etc.

And link these pages form every help page touching these topics.

(Another option is to rewrite the GUI and make make it trasparent for users - Something like do you want to set xxx ? And do you want to set it on project level diagram level or element level?)

I think connectors looks nice when pined to element cornes, side centres or element centre.

In EA it's possible to draw a connector centre to centre and free. I suggest another option to pin connector ends to 9 special points (see above).

I can also design some GUI for this, but first I want to see what other people (you) think about it.  ::)

Suggestions and Requests / Display package as list of include diagrams
« on: November 09, 2006, 12:28:25 am »
Sometimes it's useful to sort elements in packages as some kind of categorization. Then you have also some diagrams about these elements. These diagrams could be also in one special package. I want navigate people to these diagrams. So I created a special diagram for this purpose containing hyperlinks to other diagrams. Now I found terrible to manage these hyperlinks (new diagrams, changed names of diagrams).

My suggestion - allow display of package as a list of hyperlinks to included diagrams. No matter whether it will be normal hyperlinks or something special.

My point is, let EA manage my navigational diagram, not me.

General Board / Save search as a hyperlink?
« on: August 15, 2007, 03:03:01 am »
In Release Notes for EA 7.0 Build 815 there is promissed:
Added capability of showing searches run from a hyperlink to the output window.

But how to run a search from a hyperlink? I am not able to find anything regarding saving a search as a hyperlink. (It is possible to hyperlink a matrix or a help page, maybe it's  something similar.)

General Board / Rrequired Extension
« on: June 12, 2007, 08:59:52 pm »
In UML 2.1 Superstructure Specification there is a possibility for an Extension to be required (18.3.2 Extension).

/ isRequired: Boolean
Indicates whether an instance of the extending stereotype must be created when an instance of the extended class is created. The attribute value is derived from the multiplicity of the Property referenced by Extension::ownedEnd; a multiplicity of 1 means that isRequired is true, but otherwise it is false. Since the default multiplicity of an ExtensionEnd is 0..1, the default value of isRequired is false.

Is it possible in EA to set an Extension to be required? How?

And consequently if the profile would be applied to a package, will this extension (stereotype) be really required?

General Board / Cross Reference ~ Custom Reference ~ Transformatio
« on: June 12, 2007, 08:45:25 pm »
You can add "Custom Refenece". In the help it is Cross Reference and when you use it, the created relationship will be "Transformation". In the Hierarachy window it's also represented as transformation. The only place in help regarding tjis functionality is Set Up References (Cross References).

Is this for "Custom References"? Then why the name "Transformation?"

Is this for "tranformations"? Then why the name "Custom References"

Does somebody use this feature? For what purpose?

General Board / BUG "Empty" tag while importing view
« on: January 17, 2007, 01:53:58 am »
I have imported Oracle views through ODBC. Every imported view has a tag "Viewdef" of type Memo and Value "S".

Somebody else has the same experience?

Maybe it's because S is the first letter of every view definition (Select...)

General Board / Jump to the Class assigned to an Attribute
« on: November 08, 2006, 06:18:46 am »
I have a class foo with attribute myBar of Type Bar.
I have also a class Bar, but not on current diagram nor in current package - it is hidden somewhere else.

How can I Jump to this class (Bar) to see it's properties or jump to it in Project browser? Is it possible?

General Board / Preview Source Code or DDL
« on: November 08, 2006, 12:35:43 am »
In EA it's possible to generate code and DDL. While doing so it's necessary to specify Path. The generated file will be a real file at the specified path.

Sometimes I don't want to overwrite a file which is already at the specified  path and just want to see what the generated code/DDL will be if I ever decide to realy generate it. I mean a kind of preview. Is this posible with EA?

I think it isn't. Are there any workarounds to this? Or it is a candidate for new feature?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Get Element by Name
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:10:24 pm »
What's the best way to get an element (class) by it's name using automation interface?

I've found this
For example GetElementsByQuery('Simple','Class1'), where results contain elements with Class1 in the Name and Notes fields.
in the help.

Isn't it possible to use collection of elements and getByName()? But I didn't found any collection of all elements in a Repository (Project).

I've exported RTF documentation using my own templates. In the exported file some rows has the level of overview 1.
I have 2 problems
- every heading has the level of overview 1, regardless of the heading level
- some rows has the level of overview 1 and I want them to be a basic text

In the templates editor I didn't see any possibility how to change the level of overview.

Please help.

P.S. I've localized version of MS Word so I'm not sure whether my translation is correct. The level of overview can be find when formating a paragraf. Usualy paragrafs with the level od overview >=1 goes to the content in MS Word.
