Add a Port to an Element

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

To add a new Port to an element, use one of the following steps:

1.Click on the Port symbol in the Composite Elements page of the Enterprise Architect UML Toolbox and drag it to (or click on) the target host element. This creates an untyped, simple Port on the boundary, near the cursor position.
2.On the context menu of a suitable Class, Part or Composite element, select the Embedded Elements | Add Port menu option to add a new Port at the cursor position.
3.Drag a suitable classifier from the Project Browser window onto a Class or Part. Enterprise Architect prompts you to add a typed Port or Part at the cursor position. The new Port is typed by the original dragged classifier.
4.Use the Embedded Elements dialog to add a new Port to the currently selected element.
