Bugs and Issues / Re: v14 Beta: Dialogs losing file references
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:17:14 pm »
In v13.5 and before the dialogs remembered their last values so one would just "Hit Return".  The Save as Profile... Dialog is particularly bad!
In 13.5 on the Save as Profile dialog, just hitting return was extremely prone to overwriting the wrong file because it would put up the same file name as the previous time, even when you were saving a different profile. The dialog now remembers its settings per diagram and per package. Save one diagram, then save a different diagram and you won't overwrite the first. The dialog also remembers things like whether the Color and Appearance checkbox needs to be ticked.

I've already overwritten the wrong file once!
Then you presumably have two diagrams both writing to the same file.

Not to mention the added keystrokes to set up the file reference each time!
It's not each time, it's first time only.

You can of course write a build script. See the commands Repository.SavePackageAsUMLProfile, Repository.SaveDiagramAsUMLProfile, and Repository.GenerateMDGTechnology

Is the target an Intermediate Event? I get the same message as you if the target is either a Start Event or an End Event.

I thought this advice would be like carrying owls to Athens (German proverb).
Wear thick gloves?

The patron god of Athens is Athena, and Athena's sacred animal is an owl.

LOL thanks. I actually looked up the proverb after posting and it appears that low denomination silver coins in ancient Athens had a picture of an owl on one side. Carrying silver coins to Athens, where they were in plentiful supply, would be redundant and not worth the effort. It would be like carrying... *looks at Australian 5 cent coin* ... echidnas to Australia.

I'm running version 13 and EA still shows the wrong directions for conjugated ports. How do you guys handle this?

As far as I'm aware, it works. If it doesn't work for you, please submit a formal bug report. Thanks.

Can it open the diagrams? Yes.
Without problems? It depends. Some diagram objects may be drawn differently which may change their size which may affect the routing of any connectors attached to them. So expect to have to do a little bit of tidying.

1. I vaguely remember that if you set a _metatype for a stereotype EA skips the validation, but I don't remember if that's for the source element stereotype and/or the connector stereotype.
2. That will be in EA 14.

Ctrl+drag Block X (from Project Browser) onto Block Y (on the diagram) and EA will create a part of type X. If Block X is a constraint block then the part will be a constraint property. (Note that the constraint property can either be shown as a part or in a compartment, not both, so to show the compartment you will need to remove the part from the diagram.)

General Board / Re: Modelling Data Hierarchy with SysML
« on: February 16, 2018, 04:33:58 pm »
was thinking I could use a bdd to describe a hierarchy using Part Association connections.  But when I try attach the elements, I only see control flow connections.

Compositions are certainly legal between SysML activities. If they aren't available from the Quicklinker or the Activity diagram Toolbox, grab them from some other Toolbox (e.g. Block diagram).

General Board / Re: Link an User Interface element to Table/Column
« on: February 15, 2018, 10:02:16 am »
I tried it on all available connectors for UI element to Table (Inf Flow, Trace, Dependency, Realization)

I just tried it on all four of those and it was available, as long as you right-click close to the end of the connector (EA 13.5.1352)

hmmm,  ... I'm somewhat embarrassed but have to ask for help again. Why the "Link to Element Feature" option is not on the menu when I right-click on the end of connector/relationship? It was there when I tried initially but not now! Is there anything to do with the new Diagram or connectors properties?

It won't be available for all connector types. For example, I wouldn't expect to see it for generalization, state transition, control flow, note link, ...

Hi Gus

Its not possible to show the attributes compartment in diagram if you replaced it with an image.
Without image , you use AddCompartmentText to make attributes visible in shape scripts.


No, you can't show attribute information using AppendCompartmentText in a shape script. It's used in either a shape RelatedElement which is called once for each connector attached to the element, or shape ChildElement which is called once for each owned element. There is no shape that iterates the owned attributes.

Of course you can manually add a tagged value to any element in your model without using stereotypes or profiles or MDG Technologies. And if you want to add the same tagged value to every element in your model, you can write a script to do that. You might need to let it run overnight.
