Hello everybody,
and thank you for your help.

I am trying to understand how to set class property types in Papyrus class diagrams.
I want something like this

List<E> Attribute1
Map<K> Attribute2

As you see in the picture, I created a new class with a property Attribute1 and already tried the same as with Attribute2 with type <<ModelLibrary>> Ecore Primitive Types -> List.

Next with Attribute2 I tried with Map

index.php/fa/29430/0/

But somehow the type becomes E or likewise K not List<E> and Map<K>.

What I got to understand is, that when chosing a type, you can chose to set several properties (not in the sense of class diagrams) of the typed element.
So I don't have to chose one of the blue lined things under the type but can set all.

Appart from that, I didn't understand much, I can set the package and namespace like in object oriented languages, the owner is the element in which context the property appears, I guess, which seems somehow useless here since it already is a property of the class, so the context should be clear.
I guessed ownedElement is an Element in a bin of the Map as a key value pair,
but when I open it, the only thing I can only chose Redefinable Template Signature, no idea, what ownedElement is supposed to be now.
But what I wanted is to set a template signature anyway.
But I want the type to be the whole thing on the traversed tree, not just the template parameter.

What do I need to do to achieve that?

Thank you for your time and trouble.


Best regards

Philip.

It would be better to ask on the Papyrus forum.

That is exactly why I asked the staff here afterwards to move the topic.
I didn't find any possible way to move it or delete and recreate it.

Do you know how to do it?

Best regards

Philip.

I'm not sure there is a way to do that. I don't know how in any case. Just create a new posting...
