Suggestions and Requests / Re: Support for svg
« on: August 21, 2016, 11:56:18 pm »
I resume this topic because for me this is a very useful addition. I'd like to export data in SVG, because I often write documentation in latex and I can easily convert SVG to EPS. I don't ask eps native support because svg is more useful also for drawing programs like inkscape, and a modern and widely supported vector graphic format will be great in my opinion, considering that most of diagrams use vector graphics.

No, I'll try to export them... Thanks for the suggestion.

I agree but unfortunately I'm not the one that decides what to do for these ones. They are old requirements that I'm recreating inside the EA project.

We have to implement this library that allows to send and receive message using CIGI protocol. There are different version of this protocol (3.1, 3.2 and so on) and for every version we must test the sending and the receiving for every packet, even if they are equal in two versions. One requirement if for version 3.1 of the protocol, the other one for version 3.2, so even if the message is the same the requirement is different.

General Board / Copy Requirement diagram incrementing autocounters
« on: July 12, 2016, 05:18:15 am »
I've the situation that you can see in the bottom image.

I've a package named CIGI 3.1 with some Requirements Diagram and many requirements in it. These requirements have an auto-counter set.
I have to create a new CIGI 3.2 requirement package that's almost equal to this one (only a few of them change). In order to avoid to re-create all these requirements, I want to clone this package and then modify the cloned one.
In order to clone it, I'd like a programmatic way to do following things:

  • Copy every requirement in the new package incrementing the autocounter. I.e. "RQ-0126: CIGI 3.1 etc etc." will be copied in a new requirement "RQ-0255: CIGI 3.1 etc etc" (the number of the requirement must be the next available, like adding a new requirement normally).
  • After cloning, in the new package replace "3.1" with "3.2" in every requirement (both requirement title and note).

I don't want that you make all the work, but I don't know almost anything about scripting, so any help will be really appreciated.

Unfortunately no. If I move the project folder to another location or another PC link will be broken.

I'd like to store documents inside the EA project, but they are many and they occupies hundreds of MB and I don't want to include them all.

What I'd like to do is to create a project folder and create inside it the EA project. Then always inside that folder I create a doc/ folder and I copy my documents there. Then, if I copy the folder in another location or PC, clicking to a file link in EA project will open the file. At the moment this doesn't work because when I create a file link the path seems to be absolute and I'd like to find a way to create a link with a path relative to the root in which there's the project (./doc/mydocument.pdf in this particular case).

I'm creating many requirements for implementing messages that I receive from network.

I want to specify meaning and fields of every message but, since they're a lot, instead of writing their description inside the requirement I'd like to use a link to an external file that already explains the ICD.

I'd like to know what's the best way to do it. I want to create a file link inside the note, but it links to a file on my pc, so if I move the project to another computer I lost it. I'd think to have the .eap file inside a folder, with a sub-folder with related documentation, and I'd like to move this folder from one PC to another one and, when opening the project in EA, clicking on a file link will open the file.

In other words, is it possible to use relative paths instead of absolute ones when creating a file link when I'm writing notes in the property window of a diagram element?

Thanks to both of you. I'll ignore it at the moment.

I've just read a post that's spam:,31126.0.html

How is it possible to notify when a post is a spam or, more in general, offensive and so on?

Thanks a lot, this is what I needed.

General Board / Modelview for not validated requirements
« on: July 09, 2016, 10:42:34 pm »
I've many requirements in many packages.
I want to obtain a list of these requirements that are not validated or not implemented.

I've added in a diagram a Modelview artifact, and I've used following query:

Code: [Select]
SELECT t_object.Name FROM t_object WHERE t_object.Status <> 'Validated';
I obtain all elements in my project that are not validated. How can I select only requirements (both functional and non-functional)?


This is what I actually see in Beta13. I'd like to have an horizontal scrollbar when the tree is larger than the widget, so I can see all the hidden text without resizing the widget. Is it possible?

Ok thanks.

But in the constructor (ok, the name is wrong) I put an ID, there's not a default constructor. Can I omit it in UML logic?
