Missing method

Hi,
i tried to develop a plugin that can launch an instant reverse, after several operations.
But when i get the conversionModelManager like its showed on Javadoc, i can’t access to the method “instantReverse”.

So i’m asking if this method still exist? and/or do i have an other solution to perform my task.

edit:
It is possible to have an update of the Open API javadoc please?

Thanks
My best regards

Hi Paps,

As reply to your “edit”:

edit:
It is possible to have an update of the Open API javadoc please?

Actually the one in our website is the latest one:

You could not find the method “InstantReverse” due to deletion before, our engineers will add it back and they are working on this.

Hi Lilian Wong,

thank you for your post, I take good note.

I have an another question.
I want to acces to the sequence diagrams from the API, and i don’t find how a can do it. It is possible? And if it is can you tell me how?

Thank you for all.

Hi Paps,

For getting diagram via OpenAPI:

  1. All diagram project:
    ApplicationManager.instance().getProjectManager().getProject().toDiagramArray()

  2. Get active diagram:
    ApplicationManager.instance().getDiagramManager().getActiveDiagram()

P.S. here is some further information about Diagram, DiagramElement and Model (MetaModelElement) in OpenAPI:
A project contains many models (e.g. a Class is a model, a Package is a model, an Attribute of a class is also a model).

  • Diagram: diagram
  • DiagramElement: Models are shown on Diagram by DiagramElement

When you get a Diagram, you can get DiagramElement by:
Diagram.to{DiagramElement/Shape/Connector}Array
Then you can get Model from DiagramElement.

Hi Lilian Wong,

thank you for your post.
I’ll do that way.

Thank you for all.

Hi LilianWong,

thank you for the post and sorry to reply so late.

I will wait this week for the new release, but I don’t know then how to proceed to have it.
So if you can help me with that it’ll be great.
