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.

Hi,

Using the standard html export - you don't; the capability is not available via the standard html export. You would need WebEA - which has something similar - in the form of its mini property sheet that is displayed for any element you click on...I'd guess something similar is available in Prolaborate.

Jon.

General Board / When will we be able to post to ProCloud forum ?

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 ?

Hi,

I thought you could create a connector to an element locked to you via UI and Automation Interface - have you tested ?

Hi,

Another option could be to get your client to install Pro Cloud Server and then use the web services interface provided. I've not looked at the interface yet - but I understand its limited, but could meet your requirement. See here:

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.

Geert, 'shape label' is a reserved section in a shape script. Looks like you can't have multiple shape label sections however and that you can only set the origin once per 'shape label' section. So I guess the only way to meet my requirement here is to add two subshape sections to my script, which I wanted to avoid - but hey.

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 / Re: HTML export with more than one root node
« on: July 24, 2018, 05:23:00 pm »
Hi,

I believe you can create a virtual document that includes content from multiple root nodes. Search the help on virtual documents / html export for further details.

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,

Turns out it is possible - but only if you generate the doc as PDF (extension = ".pdf" below) due to encoding/zipping... this code did the trick for me..

p.RunReport thePackage.PackageGUID, "DB Diagram and Element Details (A3)", fname & extension
            
            Set theElement = thePackage.Elements.AddNew ("Baseline Approval Document [" & theDate & "]" & extension, "Artifact")
            theElement.LoadLinkedDocument (fname & extension)
            theElement.Update
            sql = "UPDATE t_object SET style = 'ExtDoc=1;' WHERE object_id = " & theElement.ElementID
            Repository.Execute (sql)
            
            sql = "UPDATE t_document SET DocName = '" & theElement.Name & "', ElementType = '" & extension & "', DocType = 'ExtDoc' " &_
               "WHERE ElementID = '" & theElement.ElementGUID & "' AND ElementType = 'ModelDocument'"
            Repository.Execute (sql)
            

Regards,

Jon.
