Defining glossary help your team to understand the software without ambiguity. In Visual Paradigm you can define glossary terms for explaining your models. The glossary terms can be explained by textual description, categorized by labels, and link up the meaning with similar terms using alias. Glossary can be created via the user interface or programmatically with Open API. In this article we will teach you how to create glossary grid using Open API. Read more
Tricks for plug-in development.
Model Transitor is a feature that allows to create ‘transit’ relationships within your Visual Paradigm models, which can be a useful reference in identifying the cause of design changes in the future. The Model Transitor can be generated programmatically using Open API. In this article we will teach you how to create Model Transitor using Open API. Read more
The SysML internal block diagram use to model the decomposition of a block or its internal structure. In internal block diagram a block can be decompose into parts or subsystems. This article will show you how to create internal block diagram using Open API.

In Visual Paradigm the models you created are in repository basis, where a single model element can appear on multiple diagrams, or even multiple occurrence in a single diagram. Each occurrence (we call the view) on diagram is a visual presentation of the model element. In some case you might want to change the underlying model element of a view to another model element without affecting the diagram. In this article we will show you how to change the underlying model element of a view using Open API. Read more
The generalization set defines a set of generalization relationship that describe how the superclass may be divided by a set of subclasses. The generalization defined in the set can group together in diagram for better presentation of the model. The generalization set can defined via the GUI on diagram or using Open API. In this article you will learn how to create generalization set using Open API in Visual Paradigm. Read more
In UML activity diagram the swimlane is a collection of partitions which allows user to group the actions with common characteristics together. The swimlane can have partitions in multi dimensions. In this article we will show you how to create swimlane in activity diagram using Visual Paradigm Open API.
Image map allow user to create hyperlink to specific part of an image in a HTML document. With Open API you can export your Visual Paradigm diagram into image file also generate HTML document with image map on it. This allow user click on the shape in diagram image and jump to the URL which you defined. In this article you will show you how to export diagram into image and generate image map for it. Read more
