Unsurprisingly, class elements are the most important type of element in UML static class diagrams. A class element
represents a class in your completed application. As such, a class element has properties and methods, and (in order to conform to
Macromedia's documentation layout) events.
Each of these groups is displayed under a header, and can be collapsed/expanded by clicking on the left side of the header. To add a
new item to a group, click the + icon on the right side of the group header. When editing items in a group, the tab key will move through
each item in the class sequentially. All of the items in a group will be sorted alphabetically by name (the first column) when the group loses focus.
Each item comprises two columns - the name column and the datatype column. The first column should contain a valid variable name
for each item (ex. use myMethod, NOT myMethod() or ThisClass.myMethod). A datatype (String, Integer, MyClass etc) should be placed in the
second column. For properties, the datatype refers to the type of the property itself, whereas for methods and events it refers to the type of the value that
is returned when the method or event is called ("void" indicates no value is returned). The datatype column supports datatype shortcuts to speed entry
(See Key Commands).
By clicking on the open arrow on the right side of any item you can access a menu with item specific commands and settings.
