Add Related Element control

Top  Previous  Next

The related element control allows the designer to specify a desired connection between the element that the user is editing and another element (optionally with a specific stereotype) and with a specified connector type.  The stereotype to be applied to the connector can also be specified.




In defining a Related Element control the designer should provide a unique name for their control.


The target element can be selected from a drop down list.  The stereotype can be selected or entered.

The connector type must be selected (as a legal EA connector).  The Connector stereotype can be selected or typed.


See usage notes in the reference section




It may be that the stereotypes do not exist in the design model - hence the ability to enter manually.
It is suggested that as part of the broader project reference data (including stereotypes) be prepared and standardised, in which case they can be exported/imported to ensure that the design models are consistent with user models.
