General Board / printing problem?
« on: February 12, 2003, 01:45:17 pm »
Hi all,

when I try to print my class diagram, some of the classes are auto-resized. Some of the methods' signatures are displayed outside the class's "box". I also notice this when I zoom in/out. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

General Board / convert EA to Visio?
« on: May 24, 2002, 09:46:39 am »

My @#$% project requires us to design s/w using Visio ( Yuck! ). I try to convince them that EA is a better, inexpensive, true CAD tool but I lost the battle ( poor s/w engineer ). Since I already did lots of work in EA and don't want to redo in Visio, does anybody know a clean way to convert my work in EA to Visio?

Any recommendation is welcomed.

in the derived class, if you decide to provide the implementation of a pure/non-pure virtual method then sure you need to redeclare it; otherwise you don't ( visually, or generated code ). So, I think EA is OK in this case. I play with round trip engineer and EA still has problems so be very careful when you synchronise your model with code. I also like to see EA provides a correct way to specify "&" and "*"; currently, you can only specify "by reference" or "by value" and "by reference" you can only choose "&" or "*". In C++, they are different.

did you choose "show inherited method" option in the message property window?


General Board / Re: turn off package name?
« on: July 25, 2002, 11:48:12 am »
Yeah! I agree with the new feature when your directory is your package name ( like java's package, C++'s namespace ).
But if I just want physical separation then I don't need the package name.

General Board / turn off package name?
« on: July 24, 2002, 08:26:41 am »

in the new build ( 500, Yeahh ), the class name is prefixed with the package name ( example, my long package name::objectname ) if it's being used in a different package. Can we turn this off? becuz I like to name my package long and descriptive which interferes with display of the class name.


General Board / Re: checking/validating diagrams in EA
« on: July 30, 2002, 07:59:56 am »
This might not answer your question but it's close to what you're looking for. In the local options-> Diagram->strict UML Syntax, if you check this, EA won't allow you to draw invalid UML stuff.  :)

General Board / Re: Bugs in EA
« on: July 29, 2002, 08:28:28 am »
Have you try STP or ROSE lately? If you have, you would agree that EA is the best, inexpensive CASE Tool out there. I also like the positive attitude of G. Sparx when I report a bug. Sometimes it's a real bug and sometimes it's just my lack of knowledge and G. Sparx gracefully point it out to me. Thanks G. Sparx, keep up the great work.

General Board / Re: Domain Specific Data Types
« on: July 29, 2002, 08:32:32 am »
It would be nice if EA creates downloadable language specific data type packages so we don't have to create them ourself. I usually import those data types into a package and use it.

General Board / looping in sequence diagram?
« on: July 17, 2002, 07:03:53 pm »


in EA, how do I specify a loop in sequence diagram?


General Board / Re: Association Has-A Question
« on: July 25, 2002, 11:52:15 am »
use [strong] aggregation to represent the "has-a".
you can use "target role" with the association so the code gen knows to create only one.

you can use your code editor IDE to convert tab to spaces. ( emacs, jedit, ...)


General Board / auto update diagram?
« on: July 16, 2002, 05:51:50 pm »

when I update a method signature in my class diagram, it does not get automatic updated in my sequence diagram. I have to choose the method again. Does EA have an option to "refresh" diagram?

General Board / Re: Diagram Font Problems
« on: July 11, 2002, 08:16:45 am »
I observe that if you maximize your diagram, fix all the annoying font then save your diagram and print, then the text won't run off the border.
I also observe that every time I do maximize and zoom to fit all, the save button is active. This means some change occrus. This never happens before.


General Board / default header comment
« on: July 02, 2002, 05:54:26 pm »

how do I change the default header comment when the code is generated?
EA insert these
//  bla.h
//  Implementation of the Class bla
//  Generated by Enterprise Architect
//  Created on:      02-Jul-2002 18:00:40
//  Original author:
//  Modification history:

on top of the code. Can I change these comment to something else?
