Hi.
Obviously I'm the only one in this universe who can't edit states and
transitions in a state chart model. I can't find any thread for this; but,
let me start from the beginning:
I installed eclipse 3.4 and updated with the update manager the missing
features (UML2, CDT, oAW) (platform is Win XP)
My goal is to generate c-code from a state machine model, so I created an
oAW-Project and added a state machine diagram in the src-folder. First,
the region to add is as big as the whole state machine and can't be
changed.
I can add states, transitions etc. into the region, BUT second, I can't
add actions (entry, exit, during), also impossible is to create guards,
events or activities for transitions. I tried to double-click, use context
menue, use the properties view, but nothing. So, please help... I'm
getting nuts :p

Hi Markus,

Sorry, but I didn't understand what's wrong with resizing of region.
According UML specification, vertices could not be nested into state machine
directly (except connection points). Why it's necessary to have an extra
space outside of region? If you add one more region, it will be possible to
resize both.

These properties are so-called advanced. Press "Show Advanced Properties"
button on toolbar of properties view to show them. Unfortunately it's
impossible to create required Constraint or Behavior using context menu of
diagram view. May be it will be implemented in frame of further releases.
You can use uml editor (double click on *.uml resource) to create necessary
elements.

Sergey.
