Support for node line style in state diagrams

asked Jan 10, 2014 in Wanted features by fred (540 points)
Hello,

In class diagrams, the

  ##[dashed]red

double sharp notation may be used to specify the line style of a node.

 

However, in state diagrams, this does not seem possible.

 

Could you please consider adding support for the double sharp notation for state diagrams as well?

 

Thanks,

Fred

Sure, you can use the following beta
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

@startuml
state Foo1 #red-green ##00FFFF
state FooDashed #red|green ##[dashed]blue {
}
state FooDotted ##[dotted]blue {
}
state FooBold ##[bold] {
}

We are not 100% satisfied by the syntax, so idea/feedback welcome!

Thank you. However, although there is no longer a parsing error, the outline of composite states is not affected. It seems that it only works for simple states.

Thanks for the feedback. This should be ok with new beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

@startuml
state Foo1 ##[dotted]blue {
}
state Foo2 ##[dotted]green {
state inner1 ##[dotted]yellow
}

state out ##[dotted]gold

state Foo3 ##[bold]green {
state inner2 ##[dotted]yellow
}
out --> inner2

Thanks to go on with your tests!
