How to display the name of a structured activity node? [message #474412] Tue, 20 May 2008 12:34 Go to next message

How do I display the name of a structured activity node? In the
diagram, all that displays is the stereotype (<<structured>>). The
properties lists the name, but it doesn't make it to the diagram.

Is there a setting?

Thanks,
Webb

Hello Webb,

Let's look what UML specification says about StructuredActivityNode.

UML 2.1 07-02-03, 2.1.48:
"A structured activity node is notated with a dashed round cornered rectangle
enclosing its nodes and edges, with the
keyword «structured» at the top (see Figure 12.133). Also see children of
StructuredActivityNode"
Figure 12.133 "Notation for structured nodes" shows notation. There is no
name on the picture. That's the reason why only "stereotype" keyword is displayed
on StructuredActivityNode.
I haven't found other examples of using StructuredActivityNode in the specification.
Have you found any other usage of StructuredActivityNode?

However, I do agree, that it makes sense to display name of the StructuredActivityNode.


Feel free to submit a bug report to bugzilla if you find it reasonable.

Best wishes,
Tatiana.

Well, it looks like you're following the spec. But I have no idea why
they wouldn't put a name on structured activities. Without the name,
nested activities in diagrams will be pretty much impossible to
understand.

What are the rules about "decorating" nodes in diagrams above what is in
the spec? Would such an addition be compliant with the spec?

Thanks,

Hi Webb,

We've found only one example of structured activity node in the spec. Probably
name is just empty in the case =)
IMHO, displaying structured activity name is spec compliant. Besides, I met
many pictures where name of structured activity node was shown.

Best wishes,
Tatiana.

I think it's not a big contradiction with spec to have name label. I've
submitted request concerning this problem,
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=236428

I'll try to fix it after current release.
