Data Types

Different programming languages support different inbuilt data types. The Programming Languages Datatypes dialog enables you to extend and manage the set of inbuilt data types associated with a language as well as create new programming languages for use within Enterprise Architect.

Note: You can delete data types that you have defined, but you cannot delete any of the predefined data types.
