Controlling Entity Details in Diagrammer

Controlling Entity Details in Diagrammer

Problem :

Diagrammer displays entity shapes with entity type details in them.

For example, a program box with the word 'PROGRAM' in it as well as the actual Program name.

How can the ENTITY TYPE details be removed from the diagram?


Resolution :

There is a neat option in the Diagrammer that will do this.

- Open Enterprise Analyzer

- From the PREPARE menu, choose DIAGRAMMER

- From the VIEW menu, click on SHOW IN LABEL

- There are 4 options here

    1.  SHOW TYPE - wil display the Entity Type name, for example PROGRAM, FILE, etc

    2. SHOW  NAME - will show the entity name - Program name, etc

    3. SHOW BUSINESS NAME - will show any special business name set for specific entities.

    4. SHOW BUSINESS DESCRIPTION - will show the free format Business Description entered for specific entities

- By defaul SHOW TYPE and SHOW NAME are checked on.

- Each option has an option to check/uncheck

- Unchecking an option, will remove it from any diagrams generated, either in Batch or Interactively.

Note : Unchecking SHOW TYPE will remove the ENTITY type, so wording like FILE, TABLE, SCREEN, PROGRAM, etc, will be removed.
