Override Parent Operations

You can automatically override methods from parent Classes and from realized Interfaces, using the 'Override Operations/Interfaces' dialog. You can configure the system to display this dialog each time you add a Generalization or Realization connector between Classes, and review their possible operations/interfaces to override/implement.

Access

Use any of the methods outlined here to display the 'Overrides & Implementations' dialog.

On the dialog, you simply:

  • Select the checkbox against each operation or interface to automatically override (or click on the Select All button) and click on the OK button; Enterprise Architect generates the equivalent function definitions in your child Class

To display the dialog automatically, from the Start ribbon, select 'Workspace > Preferences > Preferences : Links' and select the 'Show Override Operation dialog on new connector' checkbox.
