Constraint Types

In an element 'Properties' definition, each constraint on the element is defined by type in the 'Constraint' field. You can select the appropriate value from a drop-down list, which initially contains the system values:

  • Invariant
  • Post-condition
  • Pre-condition
  • Process and
  • OCL

You can add to or replace any of these values with your own custom values.
