Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Creating UML Profiles

The documentation you linked to is for release 10 of Enterprise Architect. I don't know how much the procedure changed between release 8 and release 10, but I do know that there were many major changes across the system. The oldest Help immediately available to me is from Release 8.1, but I might be able to go into the archived folders and look at older files.

EDIT: The procedures are superficially the same, but the actual connector for release 8 build 853 is an open arrow with the stereotype <<extends>> displayed on it, whilst for release 10 it is a closed arrow with no stereotype label. From what Neil says, that might not make any difference.

Have you been using that specific procedure from the website, or are you actually using the integrated Help for your release 8.0, accessed within the product by clicking on one of the Help buttons or icons?

Inside Enterprise Architect. Click on the title in qwerty's post footer, just above your question.

No, don't do that. The PDF file is huge and not as up to date as the .chm file.

Try using the index. The Search function looks for each instance of each word in the text string, but the index is a bit more flexible.

Can't you do it through the user interface? There is a Remove button on the MDG Technologies dialog.

OK, that restriction was not mentioned in the section of Help dealing with the Maths object. It is now, but it won't be seen until the next major release of EA.

The [size=16]<[/size][size=14]< >[/size][size=16]>[/size][/b] icon is what is is displayed in the corner of an element when the element's stereotype is actually <<stereotype>> rather than something like <<table>> or <<metaclass>>. Have a look at the Stereotype item in the Profile diagram toolbox pages.

And the whole point of the discussion forum is that everyone - especially the original poster, but also the many people who view the thread but don't add to it - gets to see what is being raised, reviewed, used or discarded.

And speaking of the original poster, has any of this helped you, ZuluTen?

OK - I understand that. I don't understand how the first diagram, then, comes about, perhaps like ZuluTen, but that is well outside my comfort zone too. But not necessarily Sparx's!

Ummm - it looks to me as if the two diagrams are identical, and show that the Widget Painter has no impact on the shipment of unpainted widgets. Am I missing something?

It would perhaps be helpful to know why you would set up extended elements in an MDG and then, apparently as a significant action, want to take the defining stereotype away again.

As Simon meant to say, if you want Tagged Values that don't belong to a stereotype, EA allows them to be created. You can define the element containing them in an element template, so that when you drag the (non-stereotyped) element type from the Toolbox it uses the template as a reference and includes the Tagged Values.

If someone deletes a stereotype by accident, I think you can restore the stereotype and the Tagged Values by dragging the stereotyped element from the Toolbox over the 'broken' element in a diagram.

What version of EA are you using? In EA 11 there is a Charting facility that should do what you want and a lot more besides.

What version of EA are you working with?

Sorry about the missing link. I have put a request in to have the link redirected to the correct section, which is:

UPDATE: The link is now working properly.

I don't know anything about this problem, but Simon M has recommended that people install MSXML4 to resolve difficulties with these technologies. Do you have this installed?
