How to create a process¶
Sample Category Page Content:
<CategoryBrowser /> Description of the process... configure the type of the graphics '[ModelType::EPK] '[ModelType::Flat] [[ModelType::EPK]]
- CategoryBrowser - Tag displays graph of current category. Items are process steps of this category.
- ModelType::EPK - Specifies graphics style for graph, definition from this page is used for all process step graphs.
How to create a process step¶
Sample page content:
<CategoryBrowser /> Description of the process step... [[UsedBy::CheckBookingRequest]] <Dependencies /> [[Type::Product]] [[Level::1010]] [[PageName::DifferentName]] [[Category:Flightbooking]]
CategoryBrowsertag displays graph of current category. Items are process steps of this category. Note: that you can use CategoryBrowser2 tag displays 2 graphs - left shows whole process of current step, and right only neighbours.
Dependenciestag shows table with dependencies between process steps
Type::Product- Type for current page (displays specified shape/color in graph)
Level::1010- Steps with same level are in same line in graph. Increase the Level by 10 for the next line in the graph - to Level::1020, Level::1030 etc. (If you have done some BASIC Programming “in the good old days” - this is like line-numbers in Basic. - And yes, we are working on a renumbering function ;-))
PageName::DifferentName(optional) - this overrides the usage of the name of the WikiPage in the Graph with “DifferentName”. i.e. If your WikiPage is named “SomePage” - it will default to the box labeled “SomePage” in the Graph. If you use “PageName::Some_Other_Name_For_This_Page” it will be labeled “Some Other Name For This Page” in the Graph. (“_” are replaced with ” “). To split the text into multiple lines, insert “\n” where a linebreak should be placed. Example: “PageName::Some_Other_Name\nFor_This_Page” would show the label in two lines: 1:”Some Other Name”, 2: “For This Page”.
Category:Flightbooking- This is important. Describes participation in process.
Displays 1 graph.
Displays 2 graphs. Left shows whole process and right only neighbours. CategoryBrowser2 on category page show only 1 graph.
Displays graph(s) for selected category (graph of another category process).
Shows table with dependencies including type of links.
Tips & Tricks¶
If you use the FCKEditor with FlowchartWiki, you need to put
__NORICHEDITOR__ at the start of each page.
Otherwise FCKEditor may mangle the Tags like this: (Thanks to Andrew
from New Zealand.)
[[Type::Rect_Red]] # original Tag [[Rect Red|Type::Rect_Red]] # 1st round [[Rect Red|Rect Red|Type::Rect_Red]] # 2nd round
Positioning of the Tags:
You may want to place all the FlowchartWiki related tags (like “NextStep::Maintenance”, “Type::Rect_Green”, “Level::1030” etc.) to the end of the page, if your users are disturbed by the tags showing up in the middle of the text.
