Connector Validation
« on: April 25, 2017, 08:48:55 pm »
I have written a custom plugin to validate connectors in archimate models in a package.  I've used the validation framework and it works great if I want to validate an entire package.

I am having a hard time trying to extend this to validate the elements on a diagram or a selected item.  It looks like you used to be able to validate at the diagram level but I am not sure it still exists.

I've used the sample C# validation code but am unclear how to enable validation at the diagram or element level.

Has anyone done this at all?

Many thanks,

Aaron B

It's been a while since I last looked at it, but I'm pretty sure you can only initiate validation at the package level. Once the validation has initiated however you can then validate any diagrams, elements, etc within that package.
