Grouping of modelling elements in the modelling-toolkit

Combination View Flat View Tree View
Threads [ Previous | Next ]

In order to limit the amount of modelling elements on the left side of the modelling-toolkit I would like to group some of them (which belong together). So for example I have the general element "Role" and some specific role elements such as Nurse or Physician. In the modelling-toolkit I would like to just show one for the user on the left side while the others only appear when hovering over the role element with the mouse. Then a user can choose the element he wants.

Is this possible to implement in ADOxx?
PS: I do not want to solve it like the BPMN events where you have 1 element and on this choose the appearance. Because then some other stuff wont work anymore I think or is at least more complex. As in my case I also have different attributes for each element and want to "send" the value of these attributes to other classes.

See also the attached screenshot of such groups.

Thanks and regards,

RE: Grouping of modelling elements in the modelling-toolkit
mode library attributes

A simple way to limit the amount of classes of a model type in the modelling panel is to use the Mode option in the View menu.
In order to define a Mode option you have to use the keyword “MODE” in “Library attributes/Add-ons/Modi”.

For example we have the following:
modeltype: Sample
classes:A, B, C, D, E
relation classes: anyRany, aRb

You could e.g. show all classes in the Mode called “All classes” and only the modelling classes in a Mode called “Modelling classes”. The code for this would look like the following:
 1MODELTYPE "Sample"
 2INCL "A"
 3INCL "B"
 4INCL "C"
 5INCL "D"
 6INCL "E"
 7INCL "anyRany"
 8INCL "aRb"
 9MODE "All classes" from:all
10MODE "Modelling classes" from:all
11EXCL "anyRany"
12EXCL "aRb"
