Create a Dashboard diagram and you get toolbox for pie charts, bar charts and model views. Drag a model view onto the diagram and the put your custom SQL into the Chart Source property.

Yes you can create links from elements to diagram using links in properties of element but not seen the ability to put those links into compartments on the element within a diagram. It may be possible via shapescripts but I haven't seen it.
If you generated HTML you get to see the links.

Bit of a kludge but you could drag the diagram onto another diagram and create a hyperlink then overlay onto an element.

You can create hyperlinks (context/Common/...) or drag diagrams directly on a diagram. In the latter case you can decide how to show them (as diagram frame, etc.). You can create links for all of them.

The REAL issue is none of these.

The real issue is that the local help is an MSI file.  In any large corporate a user can not install their own MSI, and about it's going to cost upwards of $400 for the ITSM vendor to take that MSI and put it into the software deployment system.

Where as if the EA client installed the local help into %appdata% it could check the currency of itself and update it as needed.

The Sparxians need to be stuck into a large corporate for a couple of weeks to learn the difficulties of working in large managed IT environments.  It's not all thongs, budgie smugglers and Fosters.
Bugs and Issues / Re: Printing out a big data model
« Last post by Glassboy on October 18, 2018, 07:25:31 am »
We have been working on a large enterprise logical data model in EA v14 and want to print the thing out and mount it on a wall so the wider business can review it
What is the best way of doing this? We have tried exporting into PDF etc. but have found in some cases, attributes have been missed off and it looks a bit fuzzy
Has anyone done a successful print out of a large model?

This isn't really an EA problem, it's a matter of how large a printer/plotter you have access to.  If you're using a PDF as an intermediary you need to set the page size of the PDF to the size of paper you are going to print to.

For example if you are going to go to a printery and have them print you an A1, make sure that you're creating your PDF as an A1 page size, not trying to scale up an A4 page size to A1.

Maybe saving the diagram as image and then print it. From Publish | image | Save as image

Hope this can help you!

Now I understand! Thank you Simon. Got everything working.

Question regarding your statement "The other thing to consider is using abstract supertypes for your stereotypes."

- I have currently been using an abstract stereotype as a supertype for my stereotypes. When it comes to attributes (such as _MeaningForwards, etc...) and making them common for subtypes should I be using an abstract metaclass?

Is there another way to approach this then?

I have a multi-team modeling environment. The specific Goal is to create a set of Model Views pertinent to each modeling team - filtering out "noise" from other teams activities and only showing what is relevant to their particular team.

I can see this and other scenarios regarding a multi-team modeling environment being highly desirable in an enterprise setting.

General Board / Diagrams in element compartment
« Last post by Mats Gejnevall on October 18, 2018, 01:34:19 am »
Hi all,
I want to be able to link an element to a number of diagrams and show all the linked diagrams in a compartment in that element. Then I should be able to click on any of diagram names in the compartment to display that diagram. Is that possible? Can I do a shape script to handle this? Or is it already possible in EA?
