Override type name (property)
For automation interface information about the Override Type Name property, see the automation interface topic for a Stereotype in the Related Topics.
This property specifies that the name of the Stereotype overrides the type of any items it is applied to directly. When a Stereotype is applied to an item through the 'Apply to all Objects of Associated Model Item Types' option, the Override Type Name property has no affect.
In the following example, the System Comms general flow diagram is stereotyped by the SV2 stereotype. The SV2 stereotype is set up to override the type name, so on the Property Pages of the System Comms general flow diagram, its type is shown as SV2.
By default, the Override Type Name check box is cleared.
This property is set on the Directly-Stereotyped Options tab of a Stereotype's Property Pages.
This property cannot be changed when the 'Apply to All Objects of Associated Model Item Type' check box is selected on the Options tab.
Note The 'Apply to All Objects of Associated Model Item Types' option does not apply a Stereotype's Override Type Name behavior to any items.
The following section provides information about the items and diagrams for which Override Type Name is a property. For more information about an item or diagram, click it.
