I would like to create a report template so that I can customise the report generated by the activity diagram.
Your tutorials show how to import a template using template packer, but not how to create a report layout.
I understand that there is a .jar file contain a .vm and .xml file.
Can I customise the xml file to create a new template? How do I do this if I can’t see the xml code?
You can go to http://www.visual-paradigm.org/openArchitecture.php to get some help in creating template. Furthermore I’ve attached a sample template which will generate the Use Case Scheduling into a HTML file. Hope this can help. Please feel free to talk to me if you have any further questions.
Is there a way to get the templates used in VP and make some changes to them. For exampl the Use Case Report I like to take out the communication links etc. and create a seperate report template without them.
How do I go about this?
The customization of report template can be achieved through the Report Writer. For more information, please visit the following links:
Report Writer Feature Highlight
Using Report Writer to develop Use Case report
That works for report writer, but what if I want to make a HTML report. For example I want to create a report but do not want to include the communication links and stuff like that. Only the use cases, actors and the description of the both.
How do i change the template for the HTML report?
We are sorry that customization of report template for HTML/PDF report generation currently is not available. In fact, we suggest user using the report writer to create report and transform into other formats. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.
