Use case actors

I don’t see how to create system or device actors in use cases. All actors are represented with the stick figure. It should be possible to create actors that are shown as boxes with stereotype of <>.

if this is possible, how is it done?
if not, will it be?

Dear ian,

This is currently not possible in VP-UML, but we will be supporting this feature later.




I have a similar question. As I known the actor is class type notation,
but in VP I had not be able to generate classes from actors.

Ps: Otherwise it is a great tool.

Hi L.F.

You can show actor as box by right clicking on the actor and selecting Presentation Options > Display Option > Box Shape with Keyword from the popup menu.

Best regards,
