General Board / Re: Adding to diagram from Toolbox v Project Brows
« on: May 14, 2014, 09:56:54 pm »
Matt the former is an actual element O1 (Stereotype m_element), the latter is an instance of type m_entity. (display Syntax Name:Type)
Try pressing Ctrl when dragging and dropping from the project browser and choose the "link" option, this will paste the element as is (instead as an instance)

General Board / Re: Mind Mapping - Expand / Collaps Topics

If you are talking about composition, you can achieve composition ( to expand / collapse sub-topics) by making the sub-topics a child of the topic in the project browser, or creating a Composite Structure diagram for topics and adding sub topics within

Try using the 'Basic Template' in 'Model Wizard" (under MDG Technology BUilder), this sample has complete instructions on how to build a MDG technology with profile toolbox and diagram.

The effects of context filtering are sometimes influenced with the 'diagram filters' settings. See if you have 'Fade' effect in the Diagram -> Diagram Filters window.

At the moment,it can be done with a simple JScript / VBScript in EA's internal scripting engine,

(Batch edit is only possible using the 'Update Package Status', which allows users to  modify the status, phase, version, date.)

General Board / Re: Custom Function Code Generation (C++)
« on: April 25, 2014, 02:01:02 pm »
YOu can look at the C# Transformation templates and see how a Property is created for each attribute (Public)

The approach will be
1. Add a new Custom Template of type Attribute (e.g. Attribute__mymethod)
2. Write your logic in the new template.
3. call this for all attributes using %list%, e.g. %list="Attribute__mymethod" @separator="\n" @indent="  " %

General Board / Re: compare without baseline

EA's built in diff / merge tool works based on GUIDs and if you've created copies (pasted as new elements) in different packages, the GUIDS are reset and hence EA may not be able to ascertain the differences for you.

This elements with same names could be selected using a custom query, and the analysis should be
  • Either done manually (or)
  • you might have write a simple addin to analyse and show or merge the differences.

General Board / Re: Help - import UML Profile for XML
« on: April 21, 2014, 04:16:21 pm »
(As mentioned in the site)
TO import the XSD Data types, use Project -> Import/Export -> Import Package from XMI.

To import the UML Profile for XML,
  • Enable Resources window  (Project Menu -> Resources)
  • Right click on UML Profiles and choose the IMport Profile option

'Generate MDG Technology File" is used to create custom profiles / toolboxes, etc and build your own technology, which is not relevant in this case.

General Board / Re: Updating of alias during transformation
« on: April 17, 2014, 09:11:17 pm »

you have to include Alias in the list of exclusions, something like
%TRANSFORM_CURRENT("language", "stereotype", "alias")%

You can also generate the intermediary file to check what value is set for alias for that particular element.

General Board / Re: Search engine indexing of HTML documentation
« on: April 15, 2014, 02:38:38 pm »
I don't see a reason why it wouldn't be indexed by Search Engines, but make sure you want them to be published as is, as I'm afraid many SEO naming conventions are not considered in the standard HTML reporting utility.

General Board / Re: Is this Sparx book relevant for Sparx 10.10 ?
« on: April 10, 2014, 11:44:33 pm »
To answer second part of your query regarding having 10 & 11 in your system.

That is possible, you have to rename your EA folder in your installation directory to something else (e.g. EA_10) before installing EA 11

you can then refer to whichever exe's you would like to access

Please Set the target containment to value. (Connector Properties-> Target Role-> Containment -> Value )

This will avoid pointers.
