Can I turn off Syntax Error Checking in Class Diagrams

#1

I am constructing a class diagram and I know the syntax of uml is field:type and generics is myList:ArrayList[String].

However, what if I want to have my class diagram presented using Java syntax as in ArrayList[String] myList. I am not interested in code generation but I would like to turn syntax analysis off so I can construct the diagram the way I want to. Is this possible in VisualParadigm?

I have replaced square brackets for angle brackets as your forum does not display them.

Hi Andrew,

You can get away with the syntax error checking if you add or edit the attribute using the specification dialog box instead of the in-place editor. Simply select the attribute and press the Enter key, edit the “name” property and click “OK” to apply the change.

Hope this helps,

Antony.
