Re: Unable to delete empty MetaAssociationEnd

Hello Colruyt Team 

 

Deleting a MetaAssociationEnd means in fact deleting a MetaAssociation with both MetaAssocationEnds.

This is not a common action and deletion from Mega.exe is prevented to ensure metamodel consistency as much as possible.

 

If you do not want to use a MetaAssocation any longer, it is recommended to hide it.

 

If the metamodel is already inconsistent for some reason, it is recommended to use a .MGR command file to delete the MetaAssocationEnd involved (it they exist, delete also MetaAssocation and the opposiste MetaAssociationEnd)

Re: Unable to delete empty MetaAssociationEnd

Hello

 

Please specific the name/idabs of what remains and has to be delete

Ex:

MetaAssociation 'XXXX'  idabs 'XXXXXXXXXXXX'

MetaAssociationEnd1 'XXXX'  idabs 'XXXXXXXXXXXX'

MetaAssociationEnd2 'XXXX'  idabs 'XXXXXXXXXXXX'

 

We need this information to build the appropriate .detete commands

Re: Unable to delete empty MetaAssociationEnd

Hello Jhorber,

 

Acually the main problem with this empty MetaAssociationEnd  is geting Translate and Compile Errors, even not allowing to give name or rename as well as delete also. This MetaAssoci​ationEnd is not connected with any MetaClass and MetaOppositeClass.

 

MetaAssoci​ationEnd Name is empty (No Space), just ""

 

MetaAssoci​ationEnd "" idabs "83F48E4E57344C2C"

 

PFA

 

Thanks,

Re: Unable to delete empty MetaAssociationEnd

 

83F48E4E57344C2C is not an _idabs, it is an _hexaidabs

If the name of MetaAssociationEnd is empty, you can used the _hexaidabs 

 

You need to identify the ID in 2 formats

_idabs (12 char long), ex C05FC44557467C88

_hexaidabs (16 char long), ex: 9)5m5HiHNX8V

 

Then you can create a .MGR command file with like this

.Delete ."MetaAssociationEnd" "C05FC44557467C88" -
        .CHK "9)5m5HiHNX8V"
