Creating a constraint parameter (SysML)
For information about creating a Constraint Parameter on a Parametric Diagram, click here
To create a constraint parameter:
1. Right-click the Constraint Block that is to own the Constraint Parameter.
2. Point to New, point to SysML, and then click Constraint Parameter.
3. To use an existing Value Type as a type:
a. In the Options group, click the Existing Type option.
b. Select the Value Type that you want to use as a type, and then click OK.
Note that, in the Existing Type: pane, you can click the Find Items button to open the Add New Search Folder dialog where you can specify the Type and a subset or the full Name of the items that you want to find.
To create a new Value Type to use as a type:
a. In the Options group, click the New Type option.
b. From the Type list, select the type of the Value Type you want to create and use as a type.
c. In the Name box, type the name of the Value Type that will be used as a type, and then click OK.
To create an untyped Constraint Parameter:
In the Options group, click the Untyped option, and then click OK.
At some future time, you must create a type for the Constraint Parameter.
After creating a Constraint Parameter, you can specify a default value and its multiplicity, and set it up as read only and shared. For more information, see the Related Topics.
