General Board / Template Fragment - Did I miss something?
« on: July 02, 2014, 07:15:48 am »
All of the online help, and even the help from within v11 says (when creating a template fragment) to check the box "Mark as template fragment".  But I have no such box.  I've followed the instructions to the letter...I have no checkbox in v11.

so, I click on the fragments folder, click new, and it says document type is a fragment.   Fine.  I create a document.  But I cannot add a custom query to this document, it says "Custom queries are only available in template fragments".   :o

I've used EA since v7.x.  So please, tell me, what am I doing wrong, and where can I find CURRENT v11 INSTRUCTIONS?   >:(

thanks in advance...  

General Board / Assign Resource(s) to multiple elements
« on: March 19, 2014, 04:21:05 am »
I have a model with about 200 Use Cases in it that I would like to assign resources too.  Is there a way to assign a resource and date range to multiple elements?  Or do I really need to do this one use case at a time?

Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

General Board / RTF Template and Tagged Notes
« on: December 13, 2013, 07:53:48 am »
I have found plenty of documentation on getting Tagged Values into RTF templates, but I cannot find any information on how to get Tagged Notes data into an RTF template.

Yes, I can spit out ALL of the data from ALL of the Notes type of tagged values for each element, but I need to be able to get the data for a specific Tagged Note of an element.

How do I do this?


I'm creating a model (package), a package within that model, a diagram within that package and elements within THAT package all with my C# based add-in.  I'm obviously executing the right Updates and Refreshes.  I'm even able to get tagged values on the element, as well as create a scenario on the element and steps on the scenario.

But I cannot get the element on to the Diagram to save my life! I also can't find any (up-to-date/relevant/c# based) examples online.

When I open the .eap file after my add-in completes and open the diagram, it's blank/empty/barren of all elements.

So what is the process?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / List Context References
« on: June 28, 2014, 06:44:48 am »
This is different than the "Copy Context References" discussion...

I am trying to use C# to grab the context references made in a use case.  Context References are not necessarily made via CONNECTORS.  (See the Sparx documentation for Custom References and how to make context references).

Because a context reference can be made without a connector, I need some direction on how to grab the context references for an element (not connectors).

Which class will I find the proper methods or properties for this?  I've looked, researched, etc and this is my final stop.  :-/

Thanks in advance!

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Cannot import MDG XML
« on: July 08, 2014, 11:07:58 pm »
following Sparx instructions, I created a project, a profile package, a diagram, added a metaclass (Artifact) and a stereotype object to diagram and connected them.  Simple.

I right-clicked the package and selected "Save as UML profile" and created the XML.

I closed everything, opened a new project, went to Tools > Import MDG technologies, selected my XML file, and am getting "Parsing Error".

What did I miss?  :-?
