Relax modal dialogues
« on: October 01, 2010, 11:30:56 am »
I'm using the element usage dialogue
 
 to try to find where a particular connector is used.

From this dialogue I can open the diagram.
The suggestion is to relax the modal dialogue so that on the main EA screen I can manipulate the diagram to (without having to close the element usage dialogue)
  • close the diagram
  • scroll the diagram
  • open diagram entity properties
  • open diagram properties
  • lock and unlock the diagram

Simon,

If you doubleclick on a line (iso using the open button) then the dialog remains open.
I know that is not yet what you are asking for, but it might already help in some cases.

I certainly support this request, in fact in my own addin I've made this type of dialog (finding usages of an operation on sequence diagrams) non-modal.

Actually the modality of the

find in project browser dialogue works quite well and could be used as a model
