Back to shape scripting: when you want the shape for a class stereotype to show attributes and operations, you are forced to use the default shape. But you can still use decorations to show additional stuff. Decorations however are hardly documented at all, except for some postings in this forum.

Yes I have used
Code: [Select]
shape main {
        v_align = "top";
      h_align = "right";
      addsubshape("symbol", 100, 60);
      shape symbol
            scalable = "false";
to add a small symbol in the upper right corner of the original shape. But in theory there must be a way to set an icon, so that you can choose weather the symbol or the stereotype text should be displayed. I didn't found out how to do this yet.

On the Page
the links to the Wiki and to the sharepoint site don't work. I only get the following error on both sides: "Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed."

I found the sharepoint site at
but it is a little bit empty and unorganised.

The linkedIn-Group is (my Opinion) senseless, because I don't want to write emails to foreigners to ask things or get information which aren't shared like in a forum.

Alltogether I think this forum is still the best place to get informations, but I hope to get the running wiki some times, because the Help of EA is a mess and it is annoying to ask every little thing here.

Hi again,

in the help is written that

"The philosophy behind the built-in Quick Linker definitions has always been to provide not a complete list of valid or legal connections, but a short and convenient list of the commonest connections for the given context."

According to the fact that I can only choose standard Connector Types I can't use it for limiting the connections.

Any other ideas?

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Connectors
« on: April 25, 2008, 12:20:25 am »

I have build a profile and now I am wondering if it is possible to create a rule or something like that, so that my connector, which is an extension of UML:: Dependency, is only allowed to connect to a specific component/stereotype.

I can't find a source/target-type or such thing.
The other way I mentioned was to set validation rules. Is there an easy way to do this?

Thank you! :-)

Ok I see. The ressources version is a good way to share a project with people who don't have the MDG and don't want to link it only for viewing the project.

But my problem still exists. When I use the ressource-version diagrams, toolboxes and profiles don't show up so I can't use the technologie.

I'm now wondering why this coud be, because with setting the path everything is working.

I didn't get the technology running in the ressources tree. I only added the profile there.

Perhaps you can tell me the difference between MDG technology in the ressources and the technologys which I import by setting the path?

Sorry I found the Problem by myself.

For everybody who has the same problem:

I named the Attribute in my own toolbox as follows:


but it had to be:


because MyComponent was an extended UML::Class.

Perhaps there should be a Message that the attribute could not be linked or something like that when building the MDG-file.


I have created a MDG technologie with a new toolbox and an element in it which is a UML::Class which has the alias "Component" and a tagged value in it.

If I import the profile in my ressources window I can drag it withaut problems. If I want to drag it from the toolbox it does nothing at all.

Has anybody an idea what am I doing wrong?

If you need more information please tell me.

Thank you
