Hi all,

I'm trying to adapt the shape of an element if a certain Stereotype is applied. Unfortunately this does not really work. I managed to change the shapes and so on via my style sheet but I need to change the shape of certain classes and I want to disable the compartments.

I followed the following page for changing the symbol https://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT/Papyrus/UserGuide/Symbols and this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Qt9a_0c-k

I tried the following things to change the shape

  • adding it to the stereotype icons as a shape
  • directly refercing the svg in the css
  • using the TypeSymbolDefinition Stereotype and pointing to the svg file


I also renamed the path from the generated id to "PapyrusPath" as the page references, but it doesn't work either.

I added my style sheet and my svg to the attachments. Is there any step I'm missing or is my svg somehow corrupted?

Thanks for your help
BR Christoph

Update:

By applying the svg as a shape in the UML Profile and in the css I managed to get it displayed inside the Element but not as the actual shape (See display.png).

I changed some minor things in the svg and the css but I would need that the Class Element acutally has the shape of the svg.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

If you want the whole element displayed as your custom SVG shape, you should probably hide all compartments ("compartment_shape_display" included) and enable "shapeVisibility", i.e. something like this:

Class {
	elementIcon: false;
        displayIcon: false;
	displayHeader:false;
	displayBorder: true;
	svgFile: "platform:/resource/test/shape_v2.svg";
	followSVGSymbol:true;
        shapeVisibility: true;
}


HTH,
Robin
