Tip 1: Make coding easy with code completion

Eclipse has some nice code completion features which are now exploited to their full extent in Dezyne. While typing in the Eclipse editor press CNTR-Space to activate code completion. You will get a dropdown list of context aware options. This also activates templates in Dezyne, e.g. using this on a keyword like ‘component’ allows you to include a parameterized template of a component definition in one selection.

Tip 2: Automating tasks with DZN command line

Do you want to automate some tasks that you now do interactively? All actions that result in commands sent to our servers are displayed in the console window.

Tip 3: Integrating Dezyne code with your native code

Are you starting to integrate the code generated by Dezyne with your own native code? You will always need a main program. Dezyne can create a prototype main for you automatically in the language of your choice by a special command in the console. Type “dzn code –m ” to generate a main for the identified model. See all the options of the code command by typing “dzn code –h”.
