Hello,

I come across that registering of an Add-In usually works without bothering about .net signing in C#.

Last time I couldn't register an unsigned DLL with EA to use as GUI/COM object in the Add-In window. After signing everything runs smooth.

In debug mode of VS 2017 everything runs smooth, regardless of signing or not. So, I'm a bit puzzled.

The thing is: In the past, everything works fine with a lot of Add-Ins, regardless of signing or not. I've searched a lot and I've found a lot about the signing of dlls, no silver bullet.

Any idea?

Thanks,

Helmut

Hi,

I'm importing DOORS Requirements with the SPARX DOORS MDG.

Usually it's fast. Seconds and not hours. If there is a slow/bad connection to the DOORS server I've experienced problems.

Before importing the requirements I usually make sure that the DOORS Module is opened within a native connection (not via e.g. CITRIX).

I'm experimenting using DOORS *.csv and ReqIF format to streamline handling of multiple DOORS modules. With ReqIF you can also visualize the pictures in EA as Linked Documents.

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi Adrian,

EA Installation Inspector has saved me a lot of time. Thanks for the great tool!!

When I use COM/Active X for an Add-In Window, I have the same issues as with the pure Add-In without any GUI.

- Is it possible to enter a ProgID and EA Inspector checks if the COM is accessible
- A hint whether Admin rights are needed for installation/de-installation would be nice

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

You can write and deploy EA Add-Ins installable without Admin Rights. You find a template at:

Hello,

for comparing models or integration in version control I would check LemonTree.

Hi,

on https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoAddinTemplate/wiki you find a running template for an Add-In in C#. This is a minimal Add-In with:

-  Gui in EA Add-In Window
-  Installation both as admin or as no admin install
-  Settings read from Settings.json
-  View Help, About, Settings
-  Reset to factory settings

With this template, you have a running starting point and you can add your own functionality. I developed it because every time I started writing an Add-In I ran into troubles. 

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

one way to export something is to write/use a search/query and:

- Export results to *.csv and then to Excel
- Use the free hoTools to directly export the query results to Excel
  (see: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/Export)

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

additionally to what q has said:

-  Use the features of your database like:
--   You can create a view and then simply query that view from EA
--   Stored procedures

Best regards,

Hi,

If you are using Visual Studio I've collected some advice at: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/addin#visual-studio

Kind regards,

Hi,

My knowledge about diagram styles in EA you find at: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/DiagramStyles.

Thomas Kilian also documented a lot of insides in his book Inside Enterprise Architect. E.g Chapter 9.11 Diagram StyleEx Property.

Best regards,

Hi,

You can also change Stereotypes and more by the Open Source 'hoTools' (Bulk change EA Elements). For more information see: https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/BulkEaItemChange

Hi,

if I understood you right you want to simulate/send keyboard events in your Add-In code to EA. Maybe 'How to: Simulate Mouse and Keyboard Events in Code' https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/winforms/how-to-simulate-mouse-and-keyboard-events-in-code could help.

With this you can send keys to arbitrary applications, and I think to your own (EA). I haven't tried it yet but it should work.

Best regards,

Helmut

Hi,

you can also:
- Build a search and export results to *.csv (I think some limitations with notes)
  (Standard EA feature)
- Use free hoTools which supports *.csv and Excel export for searches
  (https://github.com/Helmut-Ortmann/EnterpriseArchitect_hoTools/wiki/Export#sql-to-excel)

Kind regards,

Hi,

The free hoTools offers Auto Names and Counters. You specify your counters using the Settings.json file. If you have improvements in mind, let me know.

See:

Best regards,
