General Board / HTML Generation: object properties without 'tabs'
« on: February 23, 2016, 07:01:21 pm »
Hi all,
in the generated HTML code in the objects properties I have some tabs like 'Linked Documents', 'Flow to', 'Flow from', 'Tagged Values', 'Advanced'. Does anyone know where I can remove all tabs except the tab 'Linked Documents' in the Web Style Template? Or equally how can I remove all tabs and insert the content of the linked document below #NOTE# in the body-object template?
thanks for help

Suggestions and Requests / Search in Linked Documents
« on: January 23, 2006, 02:09:36 am »
hi all, does EA provide the opportunity to search (see: model search (ctrl-F)) for keywords in linked documents? I as an analyst document changes to the elements there and the programmers should be able to find the affected elements in an easy way.
thx Stefan

Suggestions and Requests / quick linker: action -> object
« on: September 20, 2006, 02:07:08 am »
hi sparx,

the quick linker is really a great feature! However, when using the quick linker to draw a connection from an action to an object, the popup window option "object flow" seems to be missing. TMO the window should have the same items as the popup window that appears when drawing an object-to-action connection.


Suggestions and Requests / RTF-generation: connection guard and weight
« on: November 29, 2005, 11:53:17 pm »
Guard and weight of a connection (e.g. a control or object flow used in an activity diagram) should be possible to generate in a report.

BTW: What is {ConnConstraint.Name}, {ConnConstraint.Notes}, {ConnConstraint.Type}?


Suggestions and Requests / "link this note to an element feature" a
« on: April 11, 2006, 07:00:04 am »
While exporting our oracle-based repository to XML, the "link this note to an element feature" option at the notes link seems to get lost. Afted importing the XML-file the text is copied into the text box and text box is not protected.

Nearly the same for "Link to Diagram Note". The link is lost and the text box is empty and not protected.

Any suggetions?

Suggestions and Requests / Event name should be movable
« on: December 07, 2005, 07:51:21 am »
The name of a time-, send- or receive-event in an activity diagram should be resizable and movable. Specially when the time event is from a foreign package, the package name and the time event name are one upon the other.

General Board / Search Large Objects
« on: December 14, 2006, 02:53:26 am »
hi all,

our daily XML-export became really large. This is not only because we are working so hard. It's mostly because
  • some fellows embedded images into linked documents as BMP rather than PNG or JPG
  • some packages contain forgotten baselines s.o. created months and years ago
Is there a hint how to find large elements, large packages and/or baselines?

Thanks to all

Bugs and Issues / Hard delete (CTRL-DEL) => "Error writing XML file"
« on: March 15, 2014, 12:14:26 am »
Hi all,

when I hard-delete an element either with CTRL-DEL from the diagram or with <delete> from the project browser context menu I get three times the messagebox "Error writing XML file".

This affects all kind of elements, but not connectors.
This happens in all kinds of repositories, in checked-out subversion packages as well as in a new created local EAP-file repository.

The mentioned element is hard-deleted afterwards anyway. I can't find anything wrong in the repository. It's just this strange message I'd like to get rid of.

I tried to change some entries in <options> <XML specification>, but without efford.

Hi all,

I'm back. My last posting is from 2007. Meanwhile I did some work with other tools in different companies, but now I'm again in a project with EA.

My problem: I have a VB-Script to save the entire repository to XML-files, written in MS-Word-VB. Until last week it worked fine, but then they installed EA7.5 upon my EA7.1, I had before.

The script goes like this:

Sub EA_XML_Export()
Dim m_Repository As Repository, package As package, m_project As Project
    Set m_Repository = New Repository
End Sub

When trying to create the repository-object, I get the error-message: "run time error '429'. Active X Component can`t create Objekt" (Translated from german).

I guess it has something to do with the version upgrade. Unfortunalty I have no admin-privileges to re-install the tool or to check the registry or whatever.

Thanks for help

hi all, is there a method to export an RTF template into a XML flatfile by using the automation interface (like exporting a package with ExportPackageXMI)?


hi Sparx,

in my RTF-Template under Connections I have a table with these columns:
source > element > {Element.Name} < element < source
target > element >.{Element.Name}.< element < target.

However, since 785, it generates not only the but the name AND the content of the linked document  ???

seems to be a bug?

PS.: SPARX: I reinstalled 781, and the RTF-Generator works fine.

Automation Interface, Add-Ins and Tools / RTF generation: controlflow guard
« on: November 14, 2005, 09:15:58 am »
Hi all, how do I get the guard-conditions into an activity diagram report (based on basic template)?

Element - Connections - (pondering...  ???)
