In Sequence Diagram, when you create a message, the return message comes by default. I don't know want it for all messages. So, I deleted some return messages. But, I'm not able to bring back the return message. The class diagram drawer doesn't have return message. In Rose, it was convenient.
1) Why is it like this?
2) Will RSA have a return message like Rose in future?

Re: Return Message in Sequence Diagram2006-03-09T20:55:58Z in response to SystemAdminI've been working with sequence diagrams lately ... I'm not sure I am answering you properly here, but RSA offers synchronous messages and asynchronous messages. Usually "message" implies "operation".
Synchronous messages include the default return because they expect to block the caller, asynchronous messages do not include the return because they do not block the caller.
Re: Return Message in Sequence Diagram2006-03-09T21:03:53Z in response to SystemAdminWhat I meant was that I don't want to show return message (synchronous) for all methods. Because, it'll make the diagram cumbersome & also it's obvoious. In some cases, it's good to show the return message. The problem with RSA sequence diagram is that I get the return message by default. So, I've to delete every time I create a message. After deleting a return message, I'm not able to bring back return message. I also checked class diagram drawer. But, it doesn't have the return message.
