Diagram Display Configuration Administration

Introduction

Due to the number of graphic properties on diagrams that are not accessible from Rhapsody, these properties have been set by default in a properties file. By editing this file, it is possible to configure the display of diagrams in MagicDraw.

The current guide explains how to administrate the display of diagrams in MagicDraw.

Administration

The Default Properties File can be modified to add, subtract, or change Property settings. However the modifications must follow the format:

Diagram_Type.Element_Type.Property_Name=Property_Value

or for Diagram Properties:

Diagram_Type.Property_Name=Property_Value

Diagram Types

Three Kinds of Diagram Types are allowed:

Note: With the current version it is not possible to apply a property on a UPDM Diagram.

DIAGRAM Key Word

Using the DIAGRAM key word, the defined property will concern all diagrams in the model.

UML Diagram Types

Here is the exhaustive list of UML Diagram Types allowed:

SysML Diagram Types

Here is the exhaustive list of SysML Diagram Types allowed:

Element Types

Four Kinds of Element Types are allowed:

NODE Key Word

Using the NODE keyword, the defined property will concern any Node (e.g. Box) in the diagram.

EDGE Key Word

Using the EDGE keyword, the defined property will concern any Edge (e.g. Line) in the diagram.

UML Element Types

Any Element Types defined in the UML2 metamodel can be used. For more information on Element Types, consult MDAccess for UML > Reference > API Reference.

Stereotype Names

Any stereotype defined in the Model can be used.

Graphical Property Names

Two kinds of Graphical Property Names are allowed:

MagicDraw defines a very large number of Symbol Properties. They are not all taken into account in the current version.
Only the properties defined above are taken into account.
