Is it possible to get names of filter elements in different languages?

To get the name of a model for example there is the method "filter.ModelTypeName(int ModelTypeNum)". The name is always in the language of the selected ARIS Meta model.

So I would like to have a method like "ModelTypeName(int ModelTypeNum, int nLocale)". Is there anything like it?

Hi Manuel.

No there is no method which provides a language parameter to get the methodical name of meta model items like e.g. attribute types or model types.

You can achieve this by coding a workaround. Open a new database session in your script with the language you want get.

Use e.g. this method to open new db sessions:

ArisData.openDatabase ( String p_sDatabaseName, String p_sUserName, String p_sUserpassword, String p_sFilterGUID, int p_nLocaleID, boolean p_bReadOnly )

Based on this session you can get the meta model names in different languages.

Hi Jens,

thanks for your fast answer.

Sorry to here that it is not implemented.....

I will try your workaround but I don't like the idea of opening and closing databases in background very much...

Best regards
