Example: Custom Link Technology

Custom technology allows you to define on your own way, how objects should be linked to diagrams, using Formula Script (in the condition field).
Here is an example of a custom technology.
We want to link the object class Role with the object class Activity via RACI objects. Here RACI objects lie on the horizontal and vertical intersection between roles and activities (see picture below):

We create a custom technology for the class Activity: 


In the field condition, we write the following script: 


This script finds on the diagram the coordinates of the class Activity and Role. Then the script searches for the objects of the class RACI. If a RACI object lies on the vertical line to the class Activity and on the horizontal line to the class Role, the objects of the classes Activity and Role are linked to the association object R, A, C or I.
