  • 2. Generating docs from UML diagram
    I've Googled this question with no success but maybe I don't know the correct keywords... I'm using Visio 2002 to create a UML diagram to design some software. The diagram has classes, which have properties and methods. For each class and its properties and methods (and for the methods' parameters) I filled in a description in the "Documentation" field, under Properties. Now what I'd like is some sort of report of the text I filled entered. I'd like to use this to help me write the code. Is it possible to generate such documentation from the diagram? (I've tried Tools|Report but didn't see options to include the text I want.) Thanks! Craig
  • 3. Setting Color Schemes using VB
    Hello, I am writing a macro to do some basic formatting of some documents, and I would like the macro to set the color scheme before it is done, and I cannot find what command or object governs this choice. I tried to get smart on Visio and record a macro while changing the color scheme, but the macro did not record any commands. So I am at a loss. Any help? Thanks. DNAphil
  • 4. How do you make a Visio shape with multiple positions? (Like a swi
    Stencil "EE - Switches and Relays" have a number of shapes that have multiple positions. You drag and drop a switch, then you can right click on the switch to select whether you want it OPEN/CLOSED. When you select, the shape changes to match the selection. How do you make shapes like this? How do you create the menu options? I would like to either modify existing shapes or start from scratch. I cannot find any description of how to do this in the online help. I am using MS-Visio 2000 Technical and MS-Visio 2003 Pro.

There is an addon that allows you to export the UML model elements in a
static structure diagram to an XMI file. This XMI file can then be accessed
to obtain the UML object information.

1.Accessing UML Model Explorer

I would like to add some custom shapes to the UML Model Explorer. Is there 
any way to access and edit t? I could not find any general tree-view packages 
except the TreeView sample from the SDK. But since I definitly only want to 
enhance the UML Model Explorer, I hesitate to built a new tree view explorer 
from scratch.

Thanks for help in advance!

2.Drag'n'Drop from Model Explorer programmatically


Is it possible to drag'n'drop a shape from Model Explorer to the drawing
page programmatically? I need to do it from external application, but if
there is a way to do it internally in visio(to write some add-in) and then
use from external application it will also be ok..

Thanks in advance!

3.Visio 2003 UML Model Explorer disappears

I'm not sure when it started to fail, but the view containing the Model 
Explorer/Properites/Documentation for UML drawings no longer appears, even 
when it is toggled from the menu.  The menu indicates that they should be 
visible, but they are not.

1. File -> New -> Software -> UML Model Diagram
2. UML -> View -> toggle the Model Explorer menu item on.

Model Explorer view should be visible.

Model Explorer view is not visible.

The problem also occurs for the Properties and Documentation, for any UML 
project that I have open, whether new or pre-existing.

Can someone tell me what I've done wrong and how to correct it?  Or is there 
an alternative to navigating through the UML packages?  Otherwise, this is a 
real showstopper...

may be wrong in my approach.

I also would like to know some articles/books for my 
reference to get started with visio.
Please Mail to my email:  XXXX@XXXXX.COM

5.UML - Association Class not in Model Explorer


I'm creating a class diagram using the UML add-on. The behavior I am 
depicting is seen in both Visio 2003 and 2007. Basically I have two classes 
linked by an association class. My two classes appear in my package but not 
my association class. Is there a reason for this? Because this means i cannot 
use this association class, its attributes and operations anywhere else 
(sequence, activity diagram etc.) rendering it completely useless... Anyways 
I'm a bit puzzled by this so if anybody has any help with this issue it would 
be greatly appreciated, I don't really feel like changing my associations to 
regular classes to go around this issue if I can avoid it.

Thanks in advance,
