Stereotype Display by CSS

Since Papyrus 1.1, the applied stereotypes display of an element can be managed via CSS. In order to understand what those CSS represents, here is some pieces of information.

First of all the applied stereotypes can display their Name and / or their Properties.

Stereotype Name Display

The Name of the Stereotype can be displayed with different depth. Full depth means that all the path of the stereotype is displayed.

 Full depth  => "SysML::Blocks::Block"

No depth means that just the last segment is displayed.

 No depth  => "Block"

Stereotype Properties Display

The Properties of a stereotype can be displayed in 3 different locations:

  • In a compartment in case of node element (ex: a Class, a Block)
  • In braces into the header of the element
  • In an external figure as a comment

Default display settings

By default, only the name of the Stereotypes with no depth are displayed. None of the properties are displayed.

For your information, here is the default CSS implemented for the stereotype display.

Default CSS

The following CSS rules are implemented by default for all the Diagrams:

Shape[type=StereotypeComment]{
	visible:false;
}
 
StereotypeComment Compartment[type=StereotypeBrace]{
	visible:false;
}
 
Compartment[type=StereotypeCompartment]{
	visible:false;
}
 
Compartment[type=StereotypeBrace]{
	visible:false;
}
 
Label[type=StereotypeLabel]{
	depth:"none";
}

Override the default settings

To override the default settings, a new CSS has to be implemented.


CSS Exemple

Here is some exemple of CSS to display the Stereotype:

/* To modify the depth */
Label[type=StereotypeLabel]{
	depth:"-1";
}
 
/* To make the properties visible into compartment */
Compartment[type=StereotypeCompartment]{
	visible:true;
}
 
/* Hide the property "allocatedTo" into the compartment */
Compartment[type=StereotypeCompartment]>[property="allocatedTo"]{
	visible:false;
}
 
/* Hide all the properties into the Compartment of the stereotype Block */
Compartment[stereotype="SysML::Blocks::Block"]{
	visible:false;
}
 
/* Display the Comment shape */
StereotypeComment{
	visible:true;
}
 
/* Display the properties in Brace into the Comment*/
StereotypeComment Compartment[type=StereotypeBrace]{
	visible:true;
}
