Understanding how customized commands are stored in PowerDesigner V9

 

will allow you to easily plug your programs in PowerDesigner while

 

installing them.

Storage

Customized Commands are saved in the Registry. You can define values for

 

customized commands in the CURRENT USER Registry or in the LOCAL

 

MACHINE Registry.

 

If you define values in the LOCAL MACHINE Registry, customized

 

commands are available for any user of the machine. Thus, when you remove

 

a customized command defined in that Registry from the Customize

 

Commands dialog box, you only remove the line from the list but not the

 

corresponding Registry entry. When you do so, the default value (the one

 

defined in the LOCAL MACHINE Registry) is restored when you open the

 

dialog box again.

The location of customized commands definition can be:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sybase\PowerDesigner 9\PlugInCommands

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sybase\PowerDesigner 9\PlugInCommands

Each customized command is stored in a single Registry string value:

The name of the customized command is a Registry entry, which has the same name as the command

The submenu of the customized command is a Registry key, which has the same name as the submenu

Other command properties are stored in the Value Data field of the Registry entry (Registry entry value)

Definition format

The syntax of the Registry entry is the following:

 

>+LGH @>.H\ NH\ VSHFLILFDWLRQ! @>6FULSW @ FRPPDQG!> _FRPPHQW@

'HVFULSWLRQ

Hide:

Defines the command as hidden

Key:<key specification>:

Allows the association of a keyboard accelerator to

 

the command. This is an optional field. The <key

 

specification> element can include the following

 

optional prefixes in this order:

 

CTRL- for CONTROL flag

 

SHIFT- for SHIFT flag

 

Immediately followed by a single character,

 

included between "0-9" (for example:Ctrl-Shift-

 

0)

Script:

Defines the command to be interpreted as an internal

 

script

<Command>

Defines the filename with optional arguments for the

 

command. The command is mandatory and is

 

terminated by a ’|’ character. If you want to insert a ’|’

 

character within a command, you must double it

Comment

Describes the command. This is an optional field

 

 

Note: The Customize Commands dialog box only supports "Ctrl-Shift-0" to "Ctrl-Shift-9" accelerators. If you define an accelerator outside that range, conflicts with some other built-in accelerators may occur and lead to unpredictable results. The reuse of the same keyboard accelerator for two distinct commands may also lead to unpredictable results.

PowerDesigner lets you reference objects among different models.

6WDWLQJ WKH SUREOHP

Update problem

When you need to share an object between several models, you can duplicate

 

it in the different models where it has to be used. However, when the

 

definition of this shared object changes, it often raises update problems

 

because it is not possible to guarantee that all copies of the duplicated object

 

are synchronized.

 

You end up with shared objects with different definitions.

Reusability

You may need to reuse the properties of some objects and make other objects

problem

inherit these properties.

For example, let’s consider entity Person has four attributes: Name, Age,

Nationality and Address. When you create an inheritance link between

Person and Customer and Employee, both entities inherit the attributes of

Person.

Since you are likely to reuse Person in several other models, you can create libraries of reusable objects which properties are inherited by new objects in different models. However, it is impossible to guarantee that when you modify the definition of a reusable object, this change will also affect the children in all the different models.

PowerDesigner addresses both needs with the VKRUWFXW feature.

8QGHUVWDQGLQJ WKH VKRUWFXW FRQFHSW

In PowerDesigner, you can define objects referenced among several models. When you modify the definition of a shared object, all its occurrences called shortcuts, are updated in the different models.

A 6KRUWFXW is an object that represents and references a WDUJHW REMHFW in the

same model or in a different model or package. You create and store target objects in a special model or package called WDUJHW PRGHO. Usually, this

model or package is not a working model but rather a library of reusable

objects. You copy target objects from the target model, and paste them as shortcuts in a UHIHUHQFLQJ model or package.

There are two types of shortcuts:

,QWHUQDO shortcuts are shortcuts existing between packages within a single model.

([WHUQDO shortcuts are shortcuts existing between different models.

Some PowerDesigner objects are JOREDO to the model, for example organization unit, or business rules. Therefore you cannot create internal shortcuts for these objects, only external shortcuts are allowed.

Using shortcuts means you do not have to duplicate objects and ensures object synchronization. The shortcut uses the name, code, type and Id of the target object and is automatically updated when the definition of the target object is modified.

To address the update problem, you can copy the target object and paste it as a shortcut in the different models where it is needed:

To address the reusability problem, you create a target object and reuse it in different models. Local objects will inherit the properties of the target object via its shortcut:

You can reuse data item shortcuts only if they are internal.

A duplicated data item shortcut has the same characteristics as the original data item shortcut.

Shortcuts have the following properties:

Target type

Type of model and object type

Target object

Name and code of the target object. The Properties button

(Name and Code)

lets you open the target object property sheet

Target model

Name of the model to which the target object belongs. The

 

Properties button lets you open the target model property

 

sheet

Target package

Name and path of the package to which the target object

 

belongs. The Properties button lets you open the target

 

package property sheet or the model property sheet when

 

there is no package

Shortcut type

Type of the shortcut, external or internal

Status

State of the target model which can be Closed or Opened or

 

state of the shortcut which can be Not Found

Shortcut is generated as object or as shortcut in the

generated model (Only available for external shortcuts).

 

When you generate a shortcut as an object, it looses all

 

links to the target model. When you generate a shortcut as a

 

shortcut, it keeps its links to the target model during the

 

generation process

Change target

Lets you change the target object of the shortcut

When you create a shortcut, you have to follow some rules:

You cannot create a shortcut in the target model or package

You cannot create a shortcut for a data item outside the current namespace

You cannot create more than one shortcut for a given target object in the same model or package

You cannot create links between two shortcuts, but you can keep the link between two target objects in the referencing model

You cannot create a link between an entity and the shortcut of an inheritance

For more information on links on shortcuts, see the section Linking shortcuts.
