Bugs found in Software Ideas Modeler please report here.
From ditectly without opening the properties page:
Only about the first 23 characters are displayed for editing
From within the properties page:
Selecting part of an operation name and selecting RightMouseClick Copy then paste into another field pastes the entire record rather than the selected text
If a function and its parameters are longer than the parameters are longer than 23 characters then the remainder is pushed into the type field and the original type filed is overwritten
In fact, the problem is not the number of characters, but the name of class, which cannot contain the colon symbol. Currently I work on new version that should solve also this issue. The new version will have the full and real support of operation parameters. I expect that this version should be completed during next week.
Just to clarify, the problem was not with the name of the clas, but with the names of attributes and operations within the class. These can initially be made as long as you like but as soon as you click on the class again they are truncated to 23 chars with about 12 of the chars being transferred to the "Type" field and the rest thrown away.
Thanks for the clarification.
In my response, I wanted to write "the name of operation" instead of "the name of class". It was so probably because I wrote it late at night :)
Fixed in 3.0.
i tried to install this tool but ist doesn't work. I get a "installation stopped working -> send to microsoft" event. Can anybody help me with this. Are there any prerequisite i have to care of before installation.
probably you haven't installed .NET Framework 3.5. You can download it here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/0/3/703455ee-a747-4cc8-bd3e-98a615c3aedb/dotNetFx35setup.exe
Software Ideas Modeler does not require any installation (except for installation of .NET Framework in older versions of Windows). Just unzip the file and run the SoftwareIdeasModeler.exe.
When adding values to objects on object diagrams, any existing values are re-added and all values can never be deleted
Thank you for the report. This problem will be removed within 12 hours.
As I promised, the new version (2.62) with the fix is now available for download.
When deleting a model from the project a Invalid Cast Exception is thrown in Version 2.0.3625.28206
System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'SoftwareIdeasModeler.MdiChildrenForms.StartForm' to type 'SoftwareIdeasModeler.MdiChildrenForms.EditorForm'.
at SoftwareIdeasModeler.MainForm.CloseWindowWithModel(Model model)
at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem.RaiseEvent(Object key, EventArgs e)
at System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem.OnClick(EventArgs e)
Fixed in version 2.50.
The Model will be still deleted as wished.
Export to PDF throws a NonImplementedException in Version 2.0.3625.28206:
System.NotImplementedException: The method or operation is not implemented.
In Version 1.52 this function has worked, though.
Thanks for the report. It will be fixed very soon.
The program reports a serialization error when copying a Drawing.Text item with custom styles enabled.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1) Create a new Drawing.text element.
2) Add some random text to the element
3) Open the Item Properties and set Style to Custom, leaving the settings on default.
4) Now select the item and press CTRL + C or select Copy in the edit menu.
5) A serialization error will be reported.
Onject cannot be serialized. Sytem.Runtume.Serialisation.Seriali
After a few more tries it seems related to the custom styles. They don't seem to work properly on any object (Changes don't display).
Also, any object with a custom style errors out when attempting to copy it, not only text objects.
This bug will be removed with the next version within a few days.
