The Case dialog contains the properties of a specific case. The case dialog can be accessed from the Cases dialog or from the Select analysis spreadsheet rows dialog.


The Case dialog contains the following pages: General and Custom Attributes (when the case type has custom attribute types defined).




In the Case dialog you can view and edit the Properties of a case, i.e. the case's name, symbol and description. The symbol is a unique identifier for the case. When a new case is created, QPR Modeling Client will assign it a unique symbol by getting the model object id and adding "MO" to its beginning. It is also possible to edit the symbol. Allowed characters in the symbol field are alphanumeric characters in upper case and lower case.


In the Formula section, you can select the "Define..." button to open the Formula dialog in which you can define a formula for the selected case. To remove the case's formula, click the "Clear" button.

You can translate items which are inputted into the model, i.e. items such as element names, flow names, resource names, etc. The btn_translations button opens the translation dialog with the translatable strings of the current tab included. Note that the fields display the values of the currently selected modeling language, i.e. in the case translation has not been provided for the active modeling language, the fields are empty.



Custom Attributes

In the Custom Attributes tab, you can manage the values of custom attributes and view the descriptions of selected attributes. This tab is visible only if custom attributes have been defined for cases. To define a value for the listed attribute, you can just type in the value directly to the field. The values for Boolean and enumerated attributes are selected from a drop-down list. You can also add new values for the attribute by selecting Add if the custom attribute is allowed to have several values (the attribute has cardinality N).


You can use the Remove button to remove individual values from attributes that have cardinality N. The button is enabled only when an attribute with cardinality N is selected in the list.

To clear the value of the selected attribute, select the Clear button. If the value is an attribute set, the action clears all sub-values of the attribute set. If the attribute is an attribute with cardinality N, it removes all values from that attribute.

For memo and relation attributes, you can use the Modify button to edit the values. Then a new window is opened where you can edit the values, or in the case of a relation attribute, Select Model Elements for Relation is opened for selecting the model element.
