General Board / Re: Importing glossary terms
« on: October 16, 2018, 02:49:41 pm »
I just tried it again to be sure and the import works just fine here.

I'm a bit puzzled as to what could be the cause of the problem here. ???

I'm using EA version 14.1.1427, but that particular piece of code was written in 2013, so it must  be compatible with earlier versions of EA (version 10?)

David,

Probably one of the used references that is not available on your PC.
If you go to the VBA development environment (Alt-F11) and choose Tools | References you should see something like this:

I think IBM RTC supports the SCC interface, which should make it compatible with EA.
See https://jazz.net/library/article/87667/

General Board / Re: How to create Sub Category (infinity symbol)
« on: October 16, 2018, 02:25:48 am »
Are you sure the element you are referring to (the one with the infinity symbol, which is meant to represent three links of a chain) is a diagram element?
If you are seeing the link icon that usually a sign that it is a regular element that has been made composite.

You can see the actual type of the element if you select it in the diagram and press Alt-Enter.
That should open the element properties dialog.

To make an element "composite", right click on it on a diagram, and choose

New Child Diagram | Select Composite Diagram

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Is Action Node on diagram?

Not really, you would need to traverse the whole model and inspect each and every diagram.
That would take hours in even a modest sized model.

The only feasible way is to use an SQL query.

Yes, t_diagramObjects contains the diagram representations of objects.
If there is no record on t_diagramObject, for a certain Object_ID that means that object is not used on a diagram.

Use Repository.SQLQuery() to execute the appropriate query.

I see, the InternalTechnologies is new since v14
The files in the folder have extension .xml, but these are clearly some kind of binary format and not plain xml. (it's not simply a zipped xml file, I tried that)

Seems like these files represent the technologies that used to be hardcoded in EA.
I guess they are now loaded as any other MDG technology, except for the file format.

I'm all out of ideas on how to fix that. I hope Sparx support can help you..

Have you tried Project Integrity Check?

SavePackageAsUMLProfile, SaveDiagramAsUMLProfile and GenerateMDGTechnology were added to the Repository class in EA 14 to help with building Profiles and Technologies via script.

Yes!
In fact I saw that and then promptly forgot about it :-[

For the visual styles that don't support the Find Command in the top bar.
If you click the top left EA Icon-Menu, the last option is the same Find Command.

Have you tried a system restore?
If you are on Windows 10 then it should have created a system restore point the moment you installed EA v14.1

Saved my ass this week after all of my add-ins suddenly stopped loading (and all I got from EA was a lousy hex error code)

What I would also try is to remove the EAAddins key from the registry (both from HKLM as from HKCU) to make sure no add-in is somehow causing the issue.
