Hello,

We have just implemented this in V8010:

@startuml
skinparam lifelineStrategy solid
Bob -> Alice : hello
Alice -> Bob : ok
Alice -> Bob : ok2
Alice -> Bob : ok3
@enduml

 

Many thanks for the suggestion!

How about coloring of the vertical lines per component?

A good setting would be a global one that would just follow the color of the participant box.

Another way is to have an ability to define to color when defining a participant

you can use

skinparam Sequence {

    LifelineBorderColor blue

}

But can this be done per component (i.e. different colors for each participant's lifeline)?

You mean something like this?

@startuml
<STYLE>
sequenceDiagram {
  .bob_style {
    ShowStereotype false
    Lifeline {
      linecolor red
      linestyle solid
      lineThickness 3
    }
  }
  .alice_style {
    ShowStereotype false
    Lifeline {
      linecolor green
      linestyle 2
      lineThickness 10
    }
  }
}
</STYLE>
participant Bob <<bob_style>>
participant Alice <<alice_style>>
Bob -> Alice : hello
