Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / Re: Create EA UI Screen
« on: August 10, 2009, 04:34:16 pm »
If I understand Neil (KP) correctly, you do in the AI pretty much what you do through the User Interface - define a screen diagramobject on the diagram, with its position coordinates, then separately define each UI Control diagramobject on the diagram, each with its own position coordinates. The UI Control coordinates overlap with the screen coordinates, so that the end result is each UI Control object is sitting over the required portion of the screen.

Did Neil's explanation of the second problem work? Once you have the screen in the Project Browser, you use Ctrl + drag and select the Embedded Objects checkbox to show all the UI elements. Otherwise you get a simple instance or copy of the screen element only.

Does any of this solve the problem?  I might not have understood Neil correctly....!

Nobody can help me?? EA support team??


Just a gentle reminder that this is a user forum and, in theory, Sparx employees might not ever read your post. If you want Sparx Support to look at a problem or issue, please submit a direct support request using the Support    Report a Bug link at the bottom of any Sparx Systems website page (including this one).


There is a pdf version of the Help (including the topic Aaron quoted) on:

The UML Tool Guide web pages have not yet been brought up to date.

Release Notes for build 846: [EDIT: Ahhh - Simon got there while I was checking things out for this reply!]

The SDK forms part of the documentation integrated with the product (click on the Help | Help Contents menu option) - it is the second-to-last main topic.

There is a pdf version of the Help on:

We also provide separate pdf documents for each of the main topics (and a couple of the second-level topics) on the Resource Documents web page. HOWEVER, we are working on mechanisms for streamlining the more frequent update of these pdfs, and as these mechanisms are not yet in place, the Resource Documents (and web Help) currently are not updated for the minor releases.

Hello Utkarsh

I have made our security expert aware of the issues in this thread. Have you submitted a bug report? I suspect that we will need some further details of what is happening when you use the methods. By the way, is it ApplyUserLock or ReleaseUserLock, or both?

David, thanks for the interjection. The method was, is, and always should be ReleaseUserLock(). I apologise for the errors in calling it something else.

I can't resolve the actual problem for you - perhaps submit a bug report to sparx support.  

However, as the earlier posters have said, the EA Automation Interface has the methods ApplyUserLock(), ApplyGroupLock() and ReleaseUserLock() in the Element, Package  and Diagram collections. They have all been there for some time, and are still there in Release 7.5 right through to the soon-to-be released build 846.

BUT the ReleaseUserLock() method (which releases both user locks and group locks) was listed in the Help for some collections in error as ReleaseLock(). This has been corrected in the Help for build 846.

Project Resources are a subset of People. Other subsets of People are Project Authors, Project Clients and Project Roles. Authors can create and edit things in Enterprise Architect. Resources, Clients and Roles are objects to be created and edited themselves - they don't necessarily intersect with Authors (that is, they might not use EA at all).

I'm assuming that you want to filter for role within the Author list (but I'm not totally certain), which is not currently possible. However, what is the larger 'so that I can...'? Would an SQL search on Resource and Role get you the filtered list of items, which you can then edit from the list?

Does this page help you at all? XSDsimpleType is the third option in the list, and the third table in the topic.

Perhaps also check whether case sensitivity is a problem - in your call, Simple should be simple?

You set each heading style in the Content panel of the Template Editor screen. Set the style using the Style drop-down field in the Template Editor toolbar.

"What that might not tell you is that in order to create a new language, which you can do from the Code Template Editor, you need to define at least one datatype for the language. The dialog to do so pops up when you create the language, but it is not immediately obvious why.
Without at least one datatype, the language does not exist within EA and you cannot write templates for it."

Edit the template and set the options using the File | Options menu option. This persists the settings, whereas the Options tab on the RTF Report Generation dialog is for 'here and now" report generation.

For the instance you define, try generating a Dependency Report and/or an Implementation Report. They seem to provide the filtering that you want.

When referring to the Help, check the product installer or PDF (in the Resources section) versions for the latest release to ensure that you get the most up to date information. For the moment the web Help lags behind the product at minor releases, because it is a huge task to load up all the separate page files.

Google presents us with a few problems in trying to help people find EA Help information on the web when searching 'out of the blue'. We hope that some investigations we are undertaking will make it easier to find anything you need in the web help, and enable us to update the web Help whenever we release fresh changes to EA. Watch this space!

But point also taken David. If you searched the index with a little lateral thinking, you would have found the appropriate Help topic. I have made the index entries more direct, so you no longer need to be Edward De Bono to get to the topic. I hope!
