Changing the type of classifiers for parts

In composite structure diagrams, you can specify the type of classifier when you create a part. You can also redefine the type of classifier after you create a part and add connectors and ports.

Before you begin

You must have a composite structure diagram open in the Modeling perspective and it must contain a part typed by a classifier.


  1. In the diagram editor, click a part.
  2. In the Properties view, click the General tab.
  3. On the General page, in the Type column, click Select Type.
  4. In the Select Element window, click a new type for the part and click OK. Any previously defined ports are displayed on the new part.
