Fabulous thank you !  ;D

Hi. I'd like to add the 'matrix specification' artifact to one of my customised MDG toolboxes but can't find it in the in-built types. I notice there is an artifact 'metaclass' but I wouldn't know how to extend this to make it behave as the matrix specification - any ideas?

Hi There. We have gone with using the Sparx 'interface' object to define the interfaces and have it 'realised' by the components. We have used the 'info flow' to show the flow of info between the components.

I can try and send you an image if this doesn't make sense?

Thanks for the replies everyone. Sorry I should have explained: our team have a company wide model and this is to provide to (sometimes competing) vendors.

As I thought there doesn't appear to be a way to do this. I think we will probably go with a master model and then have cut down versions (without the sensitive content) going out to the vendors and then hopefully 'seamlessly' integrate it back into he master.....

Our model now has a large number of users from across various areas of the business. I have had a request to restrict who can view certain diagrams. I know you can easily 'lock' packages so only certain users can edit them. However can you actually 'hide' diagrams and package contents?

I fully understand that if objects used in the 'hidden' packages are used elsewhere then users could still analyse links etc. I also understand that this could cause problems of duplicate objects etc.

That's perfect Roy, just what I was looking for thank you  :)

I tried searching in help before but I was searching for 'stored document' and 'linked document' and nothing useful was coming up.

Hi Roy. On the diagram preferably. I did think of inserting a hyerlink bu we are using a cloud connection. I was wondering ifthere was a way of storing the document in the model?

Hi there. I can't seem to work out how to insert a document e.g. a word or excel reference document. I don't want to be able to edit it within the model or anything, just click on it and it opens the document in the relevant application

General Board / Syntax
« on: June 19, 2015, 01:44:44 pm »
I am trying to do a number of things. One of these is using SQL e.g. to create charts but also editing the database directly. Is there a list of the syntax anywhere?

I am also interested in the syntax used in Sparx directly e.g. for shape scripts. Is there a list of commands anywhere?

Sorry just jumping in on this discussion as I'm also looking at interfaces at the moment. I really like the idea of showing the interface realised by the component's provided interface or a dependency from a required interface.

However I have noticed when looking at the interface's links (in properties) it then shows the relationship to the provided/required interface and not the actual component name anywhere. This is also true if you do a relationship matrix. My customer is really keen on having a matrix showing where each interface is used.

Is there anyway to do this without linking directly to the component?

Great thanks guys, I'll do some reading and look at EA Matic  :)

I was worried that may be the case  :'( Haven't done any scripting in EA yet (but I have done VBA and C++ before). Will I have to use the Automation interface? I can't seem to work out how to access it.

General Board / Derived Tagged Values
« on: May 27, 2015, 09:50:33 pm »
I am in the process of developing an MDG technology for my project. This includes assigning a number of tagged values to my stereotypes. I would like some of these to either auto-populate with a value or change the enumeration options after the user has selected values for other tags.

I am comfortable creating new tags based on my custom enumerations and getting the shape to change if certain tags are changed to particular values (using the shape script). However I can't seem to figure out how to pass data between tags (in the same element), create derived tagged values or change which enumeration is assigned based on a condition.

For example lets say I'm modelling pets. The user can choose an animal from an enumeration e.g.
* Species (enumeration) Cat, Dog, Rodent, Snake, Lizard, Parrot

Question 1: I would then like the tagged value 'group' to be auto-populated based on their species selection
* Group (auto-assigned) Mammal, Reptile, Fish, Bird

Question 2: I would like the tagged value 'Animal' to offer specific enumerated values based on their species selection
* Animal (user selects Rodent as species) - enumeration values offered are: Hamster, Rat, Gerbil
* Animal (user selects Dog as Species) - enumeration values offered are: Labrador, Pug, Spaniel
