Adding Comments/Guards to Frames (Sequence Diagram)

Postby plaborte » Mon Oct 29, 2007 1:08 am

If you checkout the example (Figure 10.5) in this link from the userguide , you will notice that the loop frame has a guard/comment which says "for each seminar".

However, I can't figure out how to add that comment in posedion 5.0 community. I tried "right-clicking" the frame then clicking the properties link but it looks like the guard field for the frame is currently disabled.

The screenshot to which you refer was created with PE 6.0, but I tried it with CE 5.0.1 and you are right, it is a bit tricky.

I was able to get the guard to come up when I first selected the loop combined fragment, then clicked on the the dog-ear part of the name tab. It seems that you must click on the frame of the name tab, right on the edge. The guard option then appears in the Properties pane.


Hope that helps,
Beth Grass
