Class diagrams: Method to method arrow sometimes points to the wrong method

0 votes
asked Sep 19 in Bug by Quinn
In a class diagram, when you point to a specific method and the method being pointed to has a separator underneath it, the arrow points to the wrong method. It seems like there are other specific requirements to reproduce this but I'm having trouble pinning them down precisely.

Here's an example of this behavior. The arrow should point from table2::foreignkey to table2::id. However, it points to table2::other_id instead.

Thanks!

Code to reproduce is below

@startuml

class table1 {
    id
    --
    other_id
    ..
    honkhonk
}

class table2 {
    id
    --
    foreignkey
    ..
    beepboop
}

table2::foreignkey --> table1::id

I fail to find documentation on this "method to method  arrow" feature. This question is the first time I learn about it. Where did you learn about this feature?

Hmm I guess it's a beta feature still maybe? It's mentioned in a few responses elsewhere in this forum, but you're right, I don't see official docs mention it either!

We are not 100% satisfied by the syntax (and by the implementation btw), that's why it's not officially released.

However, your example should be fixed in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar

Thanks for the report!
