State transition diagrams in UML Modeling Projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, all.

    I'm trying to make an UML state transition diagram in a Modeling Project, but I can't find this functionality.

    Is this diagram not supported in VS Modeling Projects? Why?

    I was looking this document https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd409436.aspx and this diagram is not included.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Best regards

  • Hi ajdPC,

    I test it in VS2010 and VS2013, it doesn't have the UML state transition diagram in a Modeling Project.

    But one idea is that we could generate a state machine from the build-in class diagram in VS 2010 RTM using T4 Templates.

    Reference:

    Generating a State Machine from VS2010 UML Diagrams

    We could get the detailed steps here:

  • Hi AjdPC,  

    Thanks for your post.

    It seems this issue not relate to TFS, I moved it to VS General forum for the better response.
